Disney is keeping a tight grip on intel surrounding the new Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens, but a new international trailer reveals a peek at the Empire’s massive First Order army.

A new Korean trailer for the film includes a tantalizing piece of new footage. It ain’t much, but it does show off one of the biggest mysteries surrounding the new sequel films: The new-look Empire’s massive First Order. There’s an army of stormtroopers numbering into the thousands, as we see a small group of leaders in front of them – with one in particular seemingly leading the assembly. Attentive fans will notice we got a look at the same scene from a different angle in the film’s second trailer. But this one actually shows the scope.

Entertainment Weekly notes that Gwendoline Christie’s chrome stormtrooper, Captain Phasma, appears to be one of the leaders overlooking the assembly. She is seemingly joined by Domhnall Gleason’s General Hux, and possibly Andy Serkis’ performance-capture character Supreme Leader Snoke in the center. There are also some new-look TIE fighters flanking the soldiers. Again, these are best guesses, but this looks to be the big bad all together to rally the troops.

Though the end of the original Star Wars trilogy painted a rosy picture for the future, it seems the Imperial forces are alive and well under this apparent new moniker. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:
