    That mysterious Star Destroyer makes me curious.

    Doesn't seem FO style. Either Imperial with red stripe or Clone. Still not sure whose side they're on...

    I wanted the SD to be a Venator or a new ship so badly, but looking at it it is almost certainly an Imp class I.

    What seems to be the bridge doors looks more like the raised rectangle on the hull, plus the edges with the red stripe are more sharp and extended like an Imp class I.

    Palpatine’s side. It’s his red army.

    A speeder with treads? Bit of a clunky design. But I assume it will serve a story purpose.

    Excellent. It'll be good to see these in action again.

    One of the first things the Emperor did upon taking complete control was remove the red Republic markings from the warships.

    Maybe it's a Republic SD then.We all know that the remaining Imperial SDs were used by the Republic after the end of the war.

    Distinct possibility, I know it really does not mean that much in space warfare but the A-wing was flying in the same direction as the 'Stardestroyer' - possibly towards a common enemy.

    Also the rumors about an old Blockade Runner hidden in a jungle planet are confirmed in the pre show video for EpIX.

    The 'family ship' of the TFA artbook vs this ship on the TROS teaser. Some similarities, although the TFA ship seems to be bulkier.

    Or it could be an A-Wing. Need a more defined image to settle it.

    The vertical parts of an A-Wing seem to be missing at the ship in the trailer

    I'm on the fence. The A-Wing style fins do seem to be missing... and the hull to engine ratio seem more similar to the 'family' ship... Very interesting.

    The ship in the trailer also has little wings that are folding out.

    So, it's not an A-Wing and it's not the 'Family Ship'. It's a new ship...so no clues;

    I would not say there are no clues. We know Rey, Finn and Poe go to the snowy planet where the marketplace and the droid factory are. They seem to meet Zorii there for the first time. It seems Lando and Chewie are together on the Falcon for some time in the movie, so probably this is just the ship our trio uses to move between planets when they are not using the Falcon.

    In that case (good thinking BTW), this could well be the cockpit for the ship above;

    It has four seats for Rey, Poe, Finn and Threepio/Jannah(?).

    As well as reporting on planets makingstarwars.net talks about the potential return of AT-TE walkers from AOTC and ROTS.

    Cool I say, though presumably they would be very old machines from the Clone Wars era. All part of this tying the 9 episodes together. Hope it has good reason and is not just forced usage though. Old equipment like the TLJ ski speeders brought back into use?
