What's the one moment from the original Star Wars trilogy that all fans wish they could recreate in real life? The correct answer is threading a snowspeeder through the legs of an enormous Imperial AT-AT walker and causing it to trip, fall over, and explode for no readily apparent reason. It's a moment so iconic that even Spider-Man references it when he brings down Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War.

So with all that in mind, you may be interested to learn that Disney's construction workers (presumably a team of anthropomorphic woodland creatures) are currently hard at work building two real-life AT-ATs as work continues on the new Star Wars Land scheduled to debut at the company's California park.




According to Slash Film, these two new AT-ATs are being constructed for a new ride codenamed "Alcatraz", which will take place in the midst of a battle between the two Star Wars factions from The Force Awakens: the Resistance and the First Order. Neither of these armies made use of AT-ATs during Episode VII, which might suggest that we'll be seeing these big guys in the upcoming movie, The Last Jedi.

Whatever's on the horizon for the main movie line, these AT-ATs will be armed and operational in the near future, and it's expected that we'll learn more about the park's expansion at the D23 Expo in July.
