    Leaks seem to indicate A LOT of ships in the movie. Old ships, new ships, and cameo ships.

    There are a lot of ships, the vast majority of which are old designs. The few that are new don't deviate much from the scrappy, kitbashed Alliance aesthetic.
    Neither the FO/Sith Fleet nor Resistance have any unique flagships.
    We'll see when folks start posting pages from the VD(it's already out), but I'm honestly not expecting much.

    There actually has been much from the visual dictionary leaked yet. Only a few passages.

    Spoiler tags the moment you do and read it. Names, starship and species names, locations. Don't care about weapons or souvenirs :D

    I'm hoping to find it at Waterstones when I go for the 3D showing of TRoS on Mon or Tues. (Also the soundtrack at HMV). Otherwise they are on the Amazon UK list.

    @ToilesHeroiques

    Do we get pics of the new capital ships from the trailer and the final battle? Specifically, the ones used by the good guys? :p

    Oh yes, please spill the beans if you can.

    -Sith Troopers. Anything about their make/origin would be useful.
    -Any details on the planning origin of the Sith Fleet.
    -Palpatine himself and his order. Any hints of his resurrection.
    -History of Exegol if possible.
    -Any more details on Snoke (if any) whether he was a clone of someone specific or "just a guy".
    -More on Mustafar at the start of the film if it's mentioned.
    -Pictures/details on Rey's family if they are shown.
    -Any details on resistance/good guy/cameo ships is more than welcomed.

    No, very little about the final space battle and nothing about the final duel.

    => Landa Calrissian had a daughter kidnapped by the First Order in 15 ABY (2 yeards old).............

    I am SO DISAPPOINTED that there is nothing on the resistance ships!!!!

    I guess Hidalgo loves messing with us. I could care less about the stupid souvenirs.
