Across the entire Star Wars saga, we’ve seen all kinds of stormtroopers – your regular garden variety, Snow Troopers, Death Troopers, Scout Troopers, and more. And now in the final chapter of the Sequel Trilogy, we’re about to meet the Sith Troopers – foot soldiers of the First Order, who have abandoned the classic white armour for deep crimson garb befitting the growing threat of the dark side in the galaxy far, far away. Empire has a brand new image of the Sith Troopers in The Rise Of Skywalker, as seen in the upcoming massive Star Wars issue.
Inside the mag, on sale from Thursday 28 November, you’ll find brand new images and insights from Episode IX, and all-new interviews with Sequel Trilogy stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Kelly Marie Tran, the legendary Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams, franchise newcomers Naomi Ackie and Keri Russell, and writer-director J.J. Abrams and co-writer Chris Terrio. Plus, the issue also comes with a bonus Skywalker Saga magazine – the ultimate celebration of the nine-film epic, with fresh interviews, features, archival material, and more – and a Dark Rey art card, illustrated exclusively for Empire by Rory Kurtz.
Take a closer look at the new covers and more here. Pick up the magazine on newsstands from 28 November – and prepare to take in the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga when Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker hits UK cinemas on 19 December.
