New ‘Star Wars IX’ Images Released: Knights of Ren & More!
Disney is making sure we keep the Star Wars finale in the front of our minds, even though the release is still seven months away. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes to theaters December 20th, 2019, and fans have already been given a trailer that brought back a sinister laugh that rattled fanboys and fangirls alike. The now confirmed return of Emperor Palpatine has locked down heightened anticipation for every Star Wars fan. Though the return of Palpatine has been the biggest reveal to date, there is so much more for fans to get excited about.
We expect to get at least two more trailers as the release nears, but in the meantime, Lucasfilms and Vanity Fair magazine have released new set photos. The photos include cast regulars like Rey, C3PO, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and others. It is also exciting to see the return of the Knights of Ren, as well as anticipated new characters played by Richard E. Grant and Kerri Russell that we are seeing for the first time. We are even given a great look at Billy Dee Williams reprising his role as Lando Calrissian.
The Vanity Fair images are below.
