Leaked Star Wars: Episode IX poster reveals truth to rumors and new characters

Star Wars Kylo Ren Star Wars: Episode IX

When it comes to Star Wars, there are fans that crave any details about the upcoming movies, especially rumors for Star Wars: Episode IX. One rumor has fans expecting the return of the Knights of Ren, and we’ll finally get to see them in action and not just in flashbacks. Now a promo poster has been leaked, and we see the Knights of Ren standing behind Kylo Ren alongside new and old characters.

The leaked promo poster shows off 6 members of the Knights of Ren, all ranging from tall to short. Two members resemble kids, with one of them holding a deadly blade. Maybe the short ones aren’t humans, but you can’t tell since they are wearing masks, after all. Along with the Knights of Ren, the poster also features new and old faces. The returning characters include Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Chewbacca, C-3PO and Kylo Ren. Billy Dee Williams can be seen as Lando Calrissian in the character sheets.

New characters include the red stormtroopers, an orange alien next to Fin, Jannah (Naomie Ackie) next to Chewie, and Zorii next to Poe, according to the leaked character sheets. It’s speculated that Zorii is being played by Keri Russell, based on the rumored descriptions. With Zorii looking very mysterious, fans we’ll definitely be intrigued by the character’s history.

Jannah looks like she’ll definitely be helping out the Resistance big time with her bow.

Another interesting thing to note is the lack of Rose Tico in the promo poster. Could J.J. Abrams be appeasing the masses by excluding the character that is compared to Jar Jar Binks by some fans?

The film is written and directed by J.J. Abrams, with Chris Terrio as the co-screenwriter. It stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, and Billy Dee Williams.

Star Wars: Episode IX hits theaters on December 20, 2019.
