Embed from Getty Images It came as a shock of sorts to see Kylo Ren attack a Knight of Ren in the Episode IX teaser trailer. Fans did not know if it was real time or a flash back. They still do not know. But the Knights of Ren have now officially been confirmed for the hotly anticipated December 20 release.
Introduced in “Star Wars: The Force Awaken,” the Knights of Ren appear to be a mysterious group of fighters. Unsure if they were under the leadership of Supreme Leader Snoke or Kylo Ren himself. There was a build up in the movie that fell apart in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” They were not in the film or mentioned at all.
In a new Vanity Fair article and photo release, they are in the magazine. The Knights are described as wearing mismatched armor with oversized arsenals of weapons. What is unknown is if Kylo Ren took out the Knights so he would become sole leader. Or if Ren is turning to the Light side.
Whatever is the case, it appears the Knights of Ren will have a larger role in this film. No one knows what they look like. Weather they are a clone of Kylo Ren or they are their own fighters, with their own identity.
Fans hope they get to see the Knights in action weather fighting or other form.
