One of the most exciting elements about Rogue One: A Star Wars story is the fact that it is undeniably living within George Lucas's original trilogy mould. However, just because it's set right at the start of the time that gave us the Star Wars movies we all first fell in love with, that doesn't necessarily mean everything in Rogue One will be familiar.

The first trailer for the movie feature a real blend of recognizable Star Wars set pieces like Storm Troopers, Star Destroyers and the Death Star, right alongside new elements such as those Black Stormtroopers and those AT-ATs with a difference. Now, a series of leaked images from the movies upcoming Visual Dictionary have shown us that there are going to be some interesting new additions to Star Wars canon.

Though it's not released until January 2017, a number of pages from the book have been discovered online by the German site Jedi Bibliothek. Included in these pages is artwork for two new Star Wars starships, a Rebel U-Wing and an Imperial TIE Striker, which looks like a slimmed down version of the famous TIE Interceptor.

Now, it's important to note that these aren't final proofs of the pages, but it's still a great indicator of how Gareth Edwards and his team are planning on mixing things up. It will be interesting to see how this new technology will be explained as we've obviously not seen it in any of the OT era movies. 

It's not just the new tech that will get fans excited, though. A number of the pages feature a certain Dark Lord of the Sith incredibly prominently, giving even more credence to the as yet unconfirmed rumor that Darth Vader will have some form of role to play in this movie.

A few other things to note:

- The Droid K-250 is likely to be the character voiced by Alan Tudyk.
- Those X-Wings appear to be Resistance Era, which means that image is probably a placeholder.
- The page with the Walker blue-print confirms the Walker we saw in the trailer wasn't an OT era AT-AT and is, instead, an AT-ACT. What that means, we're not quite sure!
