Lucasfilm has officially revealed the new Sith Troopers from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
1 / 9
These new First Order Stormtroopers ould replace Snoke's Praetorian Guard.
2 / 9
Sith Troopers have a long history in older Star Wars canon already.
3 / 9
Current canon already featured a red Trooper: Cardinal Archex. He worked under Hux's father.
4 / 9
He was assassinated by Captain Phasma on Hux's orders.
5 / 9
Hux could be expanding on his father's initiative as a power-play move against Kylo Ren.
6 / 9
But it's more likely that the new red Troopers' branding was Kylo Ren's idea.
7 / 9
Maybe Kylo can't "let the past die," after all.
