Star Wars Insider has revealed a brand new look at Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren mask and the Knights of Ren in The Rise of Skywalker.
In the promotional image for this December’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren is front and center along with the rest of The First Order and the Knights of Ren. Kylo Ren has his lightsaber out, ready to fight, with the Sith troopers right below him. In this Sith-centric poster, we also get a chance to see Kylo Ren’s mask completely rebuilt. The last time we saw Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, he had destroyed the mask in Star Wars: The Last Jedi after being berated by Supreme Leader Snoke.

One of the coolest things about this poster is that we see Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren standing alongside the Knights of Ren, who were first teased in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Audiences only got to see them briefly in a flashback in that film, but they seem to be working right alongside Kylo Ren in Rise of Skywalker. After Rey and the Resistance escaped from him on Crait, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren seems to be hell-bent on capturing them, so it makes sense that he’s pulled out his big guns. Despite being a dedicatedly evil poster, there’s no sight of Emperor Palpatine alongside Adam Driver’s character. Maybe we’ll see him when the official poster for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker drops.
What do you think of the cover? Are you excited to see Adam Driver reprise his role as Kylo Ren? Let us know in the comments!
