Possible spoilers from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker follow!
The brand new Sith Trooper was revealed and had a big presence at San Diego Comic Con. However, little is officially known about the new red trooper and what role they will play in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but Making Star Wars‘ latest report reveals some possible details on who they serve and where they come from.
The report says the Sith Troopers have been hidden out in the unknown regions, where it’s described as “hellish” and “not entirely stable.” The Sith Troopers are also under the control of Emperor Palpatine and await their next mission. Kylo Ren is also reportedly after a “Wayfinder device,” and needs the Sith Troopers to “unlock Palpatine’s legacy.” Kylo Ren will apparently get this device from the previously rumored Oracle creature. A new weapon with the power of a Death Star and stored on Star Destroyers is also mentioned in the report. This is where Palpatine’s Sith Trooper fleet resides.
Bespin Bulletin has also released some art depicting Sith Troopers with jet packs, who will also fly red TIE Fighters in The Rise of Skywalker. What are your thoughts on the latest rumors?
