Making Star Wars has published a new report in which they reveal what could be the major battle sequence featured in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

According to Making Star Wars, The Last Jedi will include a battle set on a planet called Crete which serves as the location of the new Resistance base. Previous reports described Crete as mars with snow on it but the site now suggests the world is a giant salt flat with stretches of large black volcanic rocks with lava seeping out of them.

Crete is home to a mine that was formerly used by the Rebellion as a base. The mine itself produces a gem that the Rebellion used to fund the galactic civil war against the Empire. The Resistance is now harnessing that gem not only for funds but also as a weapon.

The site claims that Crete will feature the battle including the rumored new walkers in which a squadron of B-Wings drops the gem on the walkers in an effort to destroy them. How exactly the Resistance has acquired B-Wings remain unknown as they did not possess any of the fighters in The Force Awakens but being that half of their fleet was destroyed in their first battle against The First Order, they will surely be looking to acquire new ships. A leaked photo from the set in Bolivia reveals the cockpit of a B-Wing confirming their presence in the new film.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15, 2017.

The first teaser or possibly even the trailer is expected to drop during the panel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi on April 14 at 11 a.m. ET/PT.
