While Lucasfilm and Disney have been keeping Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker tightly under wraps, there’s absolutely nothing they can do to stop fans from theorizing about what’ll happen come December.
In recent months, much speculation has surrounded the Knights of Ren, the gang of mysterious, mask-wearing villains that have been introduced in the Sequel Trilogy. How exactly they’ll factor into Episode IX is still a bit unclear, but it’s sounding more and more like they may be more important than we initially thought.
In fact, some even think that the group is there to keep Kylo in check, should he step out of line. That’s just one theory doing the rounds, but we’ll likely have to wait until December to find out for sure if that’s the case. Thankfully, then, we’re bound to get plenty more leaks in the meantime and today, we’ve got a new look at the Knights thanks to some LEGO figures, which you can see below.
Admittedly, it’s not much, but with how mysterious this group is, we’ll take what we can get. After all, other than the fact that they’re associated with Kylo Ren, we really know next to nothing about this elite fighting force, and they’ve remained shrouded in secrecy ever since they debuted in the franchise.
But things won’t stay that way for much longer, as we’ll get to see just what this clan is all about when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th. Honestly, we wouldn’t mind an epic showdown or two (or three) involving them, but we’re sure that whatever it is that J.J. Abrams has cooked up for us, it won’t disappoint.
