Star Wars 9 Sith Troopers
Star Wars 9 Sith Troopers

A recently released image from Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker features the First Order’s newest forces, the Sith Troopers.

The Sith Troopers wear the same armor as their First Order counterparts but trade the traditional imperial white in favor of elite Sith red. Empire Magazine’s new cover story on The Rise of Skywalker includes a new photo of these Sith Troopers on the march. You can take a look at the photo below. 

The magazine also contains new images of the movie’s heroes, as well as interviews with stars like Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and John Boyega alongside director J.J. Abrams and co-writer Chris Terrio. It also comes packed with a special bonus issue commemorating all nine installments of the long-running Star Wars franchise and an exclusive Dark Rey collector card with artwork by illustrator Rory Kurtz.

There’s little known about these Sith Troopers. The Rise of Skywalker exhibit at San Diego Comic-Con offered this description of the Sith Troopers: “In its ultimate push towards galactic conquest, the First Order readies an army of elite soldiers that draw inspiration and power from a dark and ancient legacy.”

Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film arrives Dec. 20.
