Meet Some of the New Characters from ‘The Rise of Skywalker’
It’s a ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Weekend Star Wars friends and to put you in the mood for the final instalment in the Skywalker Saga we thought we’d introduce you to a few of the new characters you’ll encounter during the film.
Head to the theaters to see all of these folks in action:
Mysterious and masked, Zorii Bliss is a new character played by Keri Russell. She’s a scoundrel with a bit of a history with ace fighter Poe Dameron. You’ll find her on the snowy planet of Kijimi, leading a band of Spice Runners.
Cobbled together in a droidsmith’s workshop, this droid becomes enamored with our favorite rolling droid, BB-8!
Jannah is a new ally for the resistance and hails from the Oceanic moon Kef Bir. A bow and arrow is her weapon of chose and she stands ready to lead a band of warriors against the First Order.
Allegiant General Pryde
We don’t want to give too much away here but Richard E. Grants new character joins General Hux during Kylo Ren’s rise to Supreme Leader.
Knights of Ren
You may remember these fellas briefly from Rey’s vision in Star Wars: The Force Awakens however the Knights of Ren have been notably absent since. Returning for their final film, the masked warriors carry specialized weaponry and stand alongside Kylo Ren.
First Order Jet Troopers
Yes. You read that correctly! Seen in a clip for The Rise of Skywalker during a chase on the planet of Pasana the First Order’s stormtroopers take to the skies!
These crimson colored soldiers help the First Order in their mission to take over the galaxy. The elite squadron is inspired from the dark and ancient legacy of the Sith.
Babu Frik works on the planet Kijimi and can help modify any droid. He may be tiny but he’s also big on character!
Oh, Klaud. This odd creature mistakenly joins the Resistance but proves to be a welcome ally to the freedom fighters.
We hope you enjoyed this look at some of the awesome new characters you’ll encounter in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Be sure to head to the theaters to check it out (it’s awesome) and may The Force be with you!
