Remember a few months ago when pictures of an AT-AT foot in Abu-Dhabi leaked out, and everyone wondered what that would be doing in a desert environment? Now we know, and it’s seriously awesome.
MakingStarWars.net has information on where Daisy Ridley’s character is living when Episode VII begins, and it’s inside the wreckage of a fallen AT-AT in the desert. They have a description of what it looks like up:
For now, this is her home, the wreckage of years of intergalactic warfare. The legs of the AT-AT are partially obscured by sand at the â€œanklesâ€ but pop out at the feet. This walker has been there for some time and nature has began to take the machine into the earth. The AT-AT lays on its left side, its head leveled by the dirt from which its head smashed into during a battle some time ago. The right side of the body of the AT-AT faces upwards, battle scared, shot by many laser blasts which no doubt brought the machine down. Battle wreckage is littered all around the fallen beast. This is the dwelling of the new hero from Star Wars: Episode VII.
You think this is cool? This is only the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot more coming. Keep an eye out for this week’s upcoming episode of Now, This is Podcasting! where the crew blasts open JJ’s Mystery Box PiÃ±ata and a whole bunch of Episode VII awesomeness pours out. The AT-AT dwelling is just the tip of the ice berg, you have no idea…
