Lucasfilm Reveals the Sith Trooper
Today we thought we’d take a little break from the latest Marvel and Stan Lee news and drop in for a visit on a galaxy far, far away…
You’ve heard of Clone Troopers, Stormtroopers, and First Order Troopers, but have you ever laid your eyes on a Sith Trooper?
Well that’s exactly what we’re going to get in the latest
and final film installment of the Star
Wars trilogy of trilogies, otherwise known as the Skywalker Saga. Lucasfilm
revealed the surprise edition to Star
Wars canon this week with the crimson clad Sith Troopers, set to debut in The
Rise of Skywalker, shocking fans across the globe.
Despite being obvious targets for blaster fire, the blood red design is quite striking, with elements incorporated from previous trooper armor, the Return of the Jedi’sImperial Royal Guards and the Praetorian Guard from The Last Jedi film. Oddly enough, the suits seem to take the most inspiration from the prequel era Clone Trooper armor, with similarly shaped helmets and visors.
All shapes aside, the biggest question coming out of this
announcement is who are the Sith Troopers loyal to? The obvious answer is the
Sith, but the Sith haven’t been around since Darth Sidious took a nose dive
down a reactor shaft in Return of the Jedi. It was even said in The
Force Awakens that although Kylo Ren is a dark side user, he is a member of
the Knights of Ren, and not a Sith.
There wasn’t any mention of Supreme Leader Snoke’s allegiance to the dark Sith lords in the previous two movies. So, it is possible that these new troopers won’t be following the First Order into battle at all. But then, who commands them?
With the tease of Emperor Darth Sidious’ return in the first trailer for The Rise of Skywalker, there is speculation that they could be the Emperor’s own personal troops. We don’t yet know what form Sidious’ return will take, whether as a hologram recording, a droid, some kind of dark side force entity, or the dark lord himself in the flesh. If it is in fact Sidious, whose side is he on? Will he side with Kylo Ren and the First Order? Or will Rey and the Resistance have to team up with their enemies to battle this old foe?
We’ll all just have to wait and guess until December 20th
reveals all the Star Wars secrets to us. Isn’t speculation fun?
Excel… I mean, may the force be with you!
