A recent report confirmed that the Knights of Ren will be back in for the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. For those new to these characters, I will let them introduce themselves as a collection of malicious villainous people. They were briefly spotted standing in the rain right outside Luke Skywalker’s burning Jedi temple after which they left. This was their brief intro in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Rumors had it that the ‘hibernating’ knights would return for the trilogy’s final film. On top of that, the characters were spotted in a poster image that was supposedly leaked. The good news is that a new article confirms that the men on mismatched armor incorporated with sizeable arsenals of weapons will be on board whilst showing the characters off. The Knights of Ren unlike the rest of the first order are kept together in a fashion quite much more haphazard.
Another instance in which one very good shot was collected where Kylo Ren is seen taking down one of the Knights of Ren, making it look so easy, in The Rise of The Skywalker teaser trailer is also validated and confirmed in the same article.
As expected, more questions have arisen concerning the event where Kylo Ren is mercilessly attacking the Knights of Ren. Would it be a flashback? Would it be probably the reason we haven’t seen the Knights of Ren as a result of death? Does it imply that Ben Solo is going to join the light side and turn against those that he was previously on good terms with? Or perhaps is it that the Knights of Ren have turned to the light making Kylo Ren fight them for that reason?
With all the information that we have now that the Knights of Ren would be appearing in the new film, we still don’t have the details regarding their work. Thanks to our guesses, they might probably bring out an idea. But it’s not long before we get to know what lies beyond the armory and helmets. This we shall surely know come December.
One assumes that Kylo Ren will have changed a great deal once the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker starts because he will, for the year that has passed, have been in authority over the first order alone since the last Jedi. This creates a quite interesting question on how this has changed him and his clear relationship with these mysterious characters.
Another one proposed that probably, the Knights of Ren are the students with which Ben Solo left with after destroying the temple, who knows, though this seems so likely.
The books and materials from Star Wars that have been released lately also possess no information concerning the Knights of Ren, therefore, we barely know not of what to expect. As at now, all we got is their name and their image. In conclusion, the Knights of Ren may end up being no one special but time will tell.
