One of the most iconic figures in the Star Wars canon is the Stormtrooper. Now, based on some recent leaks from The Rise of Skywalker, we have learned that the film will feature some new varieties of the trooper. One such variation is the First Order Jet Trooper, which thanks to a recently leaked figure, we have a fresh look at the soldier.
In the Star Wars universe, Jet Troopers were clone troopers equipped with and trained in the use of jetpacks. Having appeared in Star Wars: Battlefront, the characters have been mainly limited to video games so this will be the first appearance of them in the films.
The Jet Trooper usually appears similar to normal Stormtroopers save for the addition of a jetpack. However, The Rise of Skywalker’s Jet Troopers appear far different and have a style all their own.
Due to being members of the First Order, this could explain their new look. The trooper has a very imposing presence, so it will be exciting to see how The Resistance will handle them.
