A brand new image offers fans their first official look at Keri Russell’s mysterious Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker character.
The Rise of Skywalker continues to build anticipation, with a recent set visit having revealed new information about many characters. Thanks to Vanity Fair, Star Wars fans now know that Keri Russell is playing a character known as Zorri Bliss.
Previously, it was rumored that Keri Russell would be playing a bounty hunter in The Rise of Skywalker. Vanity Fair’s headline specifically calls Zorri Bliss “roguish.” While we have no idea what that means, it seems Zorri Bliss will have a bit of complexity to her.
Keri Russell has previously said that her Star Wars character has “the coolest costume,” and thanks to a new image from The Rise of Skywalker, we can confirm that she’s not wrong. Check it out below.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion King stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
