I must admit that Lucasfilm and Disney are doing a fantastic job with The Last Jedi. Six months out from release, they've only given us one trailer and some set pics to tide us over, and frankly, that's the way it should be with these tentpole movies. Too often these days we get buried under an avalanche of trailers and TV spots and so much advertising that we know basically everything about a movie before we even sit down to watch it.
Having said all that, I think the fanboys such as myself are positively ravenous for any little bit of information we can get our hands on, so that makes these leaked pics a blessing and a curse. The blessing is that we're getting to see some of the new stuff director Rian Johnson has in store for us, but the curse is that the pics are blurry and don't really give us a full scope of what to expect.
Nevertheless, in these pics you'll see Supreme Leader Snoke's "Elite Praetorian Guards," designed to look like The Emperor's Royal Guards from Return of the Jedi. There's also a look at a new Stormtrooper Commander and an AT-M6, the AT-AT of the new trilogy. There's some really cool stuff in here, but thankfully just enough to whet you're appetite without really spoiling anything major.
