Hi, hello. So starting right now, I am officially in “freaking out about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker mode.”
While a lot about the movie has been kept under wraps, Vanity Fair just gave us incredible details about some of the new characters.
For starters, Keri Russell will be playing the mysterious Zorri Bliss, and I’m already obsessed.
In Vanity Fair’s first look, Zorri is described as a “masked scoundrel” — she’s also seen here in the Thieves’ Quarter on Kijimi.
Keri’s role in The Rise of Skywalker is also special because she reunited with Felicity creator J.J. Abrams.
Along with Keri’s Zorri, Vanity Fair gave us our first official look at Richard E. Grant’s character.
Richard will play Allegiant General Pryde, an important member of the First Order.
It’s been suspected that Richard would be playing the father of Domhnall Gleeson’s character General Hux, and while this is still a possibility, they officially don’t share a family name.
And finally, while we got a first glimpse of her at Star Wars Celebration, Naomi Ackie’s Jannah is featured in this gorgeous photo with John Boyega’s Finn.
Naomi’s character is shrouded in the most secrecy, but I’m still sticking to the theory that she could be Lando Calrissian’s daughter.
Basically, I’m so excited for all of these new characters to join the Star Wars universe and I cannot wait to learn more about them.
