Final installment is out on December 19
Fans of Star Wars have been given a glimpse of two new characters to appear in the next film in the franchise: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
In a YouTube live stream broadcast yesterday (September 26), the actors starring in the film discover some new toy versions of themselves. In the clip, we see a first look at Keri Russell’s character Zorri, as well as two new characters for the first time – Boolio and Babu Frik.
Fans are speculating that Boolio may play a big role after the toy character was seen emerging from the Millennium Falcon. Babu Frick meanwhile, was attached to the Hasbro Black Series C-3PO figure and is a droid-builder.
You can watch the original stream and see the new characters below.
Collider asked on its Twitter page: “Which MCU actor would you like to see pop up in a Star Wars movie?” Evans tweeted back: “Me.”
Meanwhile, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, who oversaw Evans’ Captain America films, signed up yesterday (September 26) to join Disney in making a new Star Wars movie.
Disney chairman Alan Horn said of Feige’s appointment: “With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling. Knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together.”
The Rise Of Skywalker wraps up the current Star Wars trilogy once it’s released on December 19.
