Rise of Skywalker Sith Trooper Announced

Ahead of San Diego Comic Con, Starwars.com has announced the Sith Trooper for The Rise of Skywalker.

Exclusive Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker products and a special exhibit celebrating Stormtrooper design are coming to San Diego this month.

Those of you who are going to Comic Con will be treated to an new exhibit featuring Stormtrooper armor from past and present, including the new First Order Sith Trooper.

The Sith Trooper is “…a modern and more menacing look befitting its namesake.

You didn’t think Lucasfilm wasn’t going to give us anything at SDCC, did you?

“It has some really unique aesthetics to it,” says Madlyn Burkert, Lucasfilm archivist, who is co-producing the exhibit. “And it has some subtle ties to previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will enjoy discovering.”

Some are speculating that these troopers may be Palpatine’s as Kylo Ren may not want anything to do with The First Order and as we saw in The Last Jedi, he wants the Sith to end. Although it may be a red herring, I took a second look at Starwars.com’s wording in their article:

“…including a first look at the next evolution in Imperial/First Order soldiers…”

So maybe, maybe not. We’ll see. Bo doubt we will get more information come San Diego Comic Con July 18 – 21.
