Who controls the Sith Troopers?
Star Wars fans who have been suffering from sci-fi withdrawal since the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's trailer, have been debating the answer to the above question after listening to the eerie laugh of Emperor Palpatine in the video.
While many have been justifying that 'Sith troopers' would make Emperor Palpatine the obvious choice, a leaked Sith Trooper t-shirt has slammed all arguments crowning the Supreme Leader of the First Order Kylo Ren as the Commander-in-chief of the Sith Troopers.
The photos of the official Disney Merchandise have been circulating for a week on Reddit. While Star Wars' official website has hidden visuals of the T-shirt, the photos on Reddit clearly show a Stormtrooper's helmet printed on the black t-shirt with the legend 'Under the Strict command of Kylo & the Knights of Ren' under it.
Here is the photo:
According to Reddit, this photo disproves previous beliefs that the Sith Fleet belongs to Palpatine which explained their disappearance for such a long time as they could have been floating somewhere in space undetected. Many believe that the photo confirms that the Sith Troopers couldn’t possibly be working under anyone but Kylo and his knights.
While Episode VIII ended with Kylo Ren taking over as the Supreme Leader of the First Order by killing Snoke and failing to turn Rey towards the Dark Side, fans have been speculating Emperor Palpatine's revival in Episode IX. Adding to the confusion, Star wars released a new red Sith Trooper toy.
Star Wars Episode is set to release on December 2019.
