New footage for the upcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was recently released in Korea.

Although the clip was short, there are scenes that could make fans especially excited: your first look at the First Order, which is said to be led by Supreme Leader Snoke, played by Andy Serkis, reported ABC News.

The First Order army looked daunting. USA Today pointed out that it looked eerily similar to the historical photos of Nazi Germany, and is said to be the surviving faction of the Galactic Empire from the original Star Wars Trilogy.

With the Empire gone, the First Order is its new version - and the Big Bad for this year's Episode 7. The footage only lasted for a few seconds, however, and new updates are always welcome, especially by fans who are getting antsy about the upcoming installment.

The clip opened with a reverse shot of the Stormtrooper army from a previous trailer, which gives a good sense of power and intimidation from the Resistance, and it seems that they have the work cut out for them.

Due to the leaked TV Spot released in Korea, Lucasfilm took it to themselves to release an official high-res photo of the scene.

Fans observed that the First Order army looked remarkably like AT-TEs, although according to Slash Film, fans have already nicknamed them "Turtle Walkers".

Other details were also confirmed, by IGN, including the fact that The Force Awakens will not feature midi-chlordians.

Here are other things that we know so far about the highly anticipated film:

1) The name of the First Order headquarters that is run by Domnhall Gleeson's General Hux is called Starkiller Base, derived from the name of original Star Wars trilogy hero, Luke Skywalker.

2) Admiral Ackbar and Nien Nunb will make appearances, or at the very least, members of their respective races will. However, IGN thinks that the original characters will be the ones making appearances, and if so, it's something that fans can look forward to.

3) Actor Warwick Davis is returning for "The Force Awakens." However, he will not be reprising his role as the Ewok Wicket. IGN reported that he's coming back as a new creature - what he's going to be remains a mystery. At least for now.

Check out the Star Wars international teaser footage below. No, don't worry, it's not in Korean, despite what the hard subs will make you think.

"Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens" will premiere on December 18, 2015.
