Star Wars: Episode 9

An alleged piece of poster art — presumably created for merchandising purposes — has hit the web, giving us our potential first look at some intriguing imagery from the film. There’s new crimson stormtroopers, a Y-Wing, what appears to be the Knights of Ren, Naomi Ackie’s new character, and even Kylo Ren wearing a repaired version of the mask he shattered in The Last Jedi.

The costumes worn by Finn, Rey, and Poe seemingly match up with what little we got to see of the characters in a photo released by J.J. Abrams to mark the end of production last month.

Mark Hamill himself has cast doubt on the veracity of the poster, but, given Hamill’s penchant for twitter trickery and the fact that Lucasfilm previously declared that the merchandise art for Solo: A Star Wars Story that leaked ahead of time was unofficial (up until the moment it started appearing on toy boxes), it’s hard to say that this is necessarily a definitive debunk or obfuscation.

So who can say? Someone at Lucasfilm in like, two weeks at the Star Wars Celebration Episode 9 panel, probably.

In potentially related news, Keri Russell revealed her mysterious Star Wars character has “the coolest costume” on a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Could such a cool costume be that helmeted individual on this poster? OK, we’re exhausted now.
