Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: Revelation of the New Sith Soldier

Disney and Lucasfilm have revealed Star Wars soldier Sith Trooper: The Rise of Skywalker, a new soldier with a "modern and more threatening" look, which corresponds to his name. "At the San Diego Comic-Con 2019 from July 18 to 21, Lucasfilm celebrating the history and future of the stormtrooper design with an exhibition that includes nine screen costumes: an imperial stormtrooper, a TIE pilot, death soldier, shoretrooper, biker scout, First Order Stormtrooper, First Order TIE pilot, Captain Phasma, and the new Sith Trooper.

Lucasfilm calls the Sith Trooper the "next evolution of imperial / first-rate soldiers," though further details are currently unknown.

"Its aesthetic is truly unique," says Lucasfilm archivist Madlyn Burkert, who co-produces the exhibition. "And it has subtle connections with previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will love to discover."

Sith trooper products will also enter the CRS, including a Black Series figure and a 1/6 scale model. You can see all the articles in the gallery below.
