 Overnight, images of the merchandise art and/or poster, and several costume concepts and action figures from STAR WARS EPISODE IX were leaked, and we have them for you NOW. The first, and largest image, is FULL of new looks at previous characters, and first looks at some new ones! We get our first look at (the VERY cool costume of) Zorii, portrayed by Keri Russell, as well as (reportedly) Lando Calrissian's daughter, Zannah, played by Naomi Ackie, a Resistance officer played by Dominic Monaghan, a First Order officer played by Richard E. Grant and a troop of red stormtroopers (their helmets blending elements from the clone trooper helmets and the stormtrooper helmets from both the original and sequel trilogies). Also of note is Kylo Ren's re-forged helmet, bearing the marks of having previously been smashed to bits by him in STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI. The broken/repaired look adds menace to the sleek helmet he's work through the previous two chapters of the sequel trilogy.
It also gives us what is simultaneously a cool and foreboding image: C-3PO is wearing Chewbacca's bandolier and wielding his bowcaster. I don't want to speculate, but I don't like the idea I get when I wonder why he would be sporting Chewie's battle gear. 
The Knights Of Ren are also prominently featured on the poster, indicating that we may finally see them in action for more than a brief flashback, and hopefully, get the story on them! 
We also get a look at several costume changes for existing characters such as Rey, Poe Dameron, and Finn, PLUS an older Lando, wearing a costume VERY similar to Donald Glover's yellow shirt/dark cape from SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. He's also using a walking stick/cane, as seen in the character concept images below.

I'm VERY EXCITED to see the new looks for this film, and can't WAIT to see how they wrap this story up, since it's not only the end of this trilogy, but the conclusion of the roughly half-century long Skywalker Saga. 

Enjoy the images, and as always, keep it geek!
