New promotional art for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker provides a fresh look at the Knights of Ren and other new characters. Kylo Ren’s newly repaired helmet is also on display, along with the mysterious red Sith Troopers.
You can check out the new look at the Knights of Ren and Kylo Ren’s repaired helmet below, thanks to the Star Wars News Net Twitter account.
The new image seems to exclusively depict antagonists. Kylo Ren looms over the Third Reich-esque troops of the First Order, the cracks in his repaired mask gleaming a sinister red. A majority of the characters are the new Sith Troopers, their bright red armor matching the suffusion of red-orange light glimmering throughout the scene. Imperial Guard look on while wielding sinister metallic weaponry, and a Star Destroyer along with TIE fighters soar in from above. A garish sun illuminates the scene as Ren’s lightsaber crosses with a Jedi lightsaber blade. Towards the bottom of the image is a caped trooper lifting a hefty blaster as Tie fighters and speeders fly swiftly between them.
