Star Wars: 9 questions we have for Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Question 7: What will we get out of the Knights of Ren?

One of the most exciting aspects of The Rise of Skywalker is the inclusion of the Knights of Ren. These band of misfits had been hyped since before The Force Awakens — and all we got was a glimpse of them during Rey’s force vision.

However, the Knights of Ren are legit. There are at least six of them with mismatched armor and crazy weapons. They certainly look like a group that would wreak havoc no matter where they showed up.

In reality, we don’t know anything about them and, hopefully, The Rise of Skywalker changes all of that.

According to Vanity Fair — with this close up shot of the Knights of Ren — they are definitely back, and we may even find out a little more about them. The thought is that they are part of the reason Kylo had left Luke and his makeshift Jedi Academy, after Luke thought about killing Kylo since the dark side was strong with him.

But we don’t actually know what the Knights of Ren will bring. However, just their name alone makes it seem they do Kylo’s bidding. Perhaps, they’re the group that goes in quietly to take care of business without the noise and destruction of stormtroopers.

They are probably better shots too.

While we don’t have specifics on the Knights of Ren, we at least know they’re are back.
