“Star Wars: Episode 9” is expected to resolve all the mysteries of the sequel trilogy, especially when it comes to the new villains Knights of Ren. The group has been mentioned several times, but very little is known about them. The most significant questions that the upcoming film will answer is whether they are Force wielders, and do they carry lightsabers.

Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is the head of the Knights of Ren. The new Supreme Leader of the First Order is a powerful Force wielder, and according to Screen Rant, so are his followers. The mysterious group wants to dominate the galaxy, and with no Jedi Order to stop them it looks very likely that they will succeed, unless Rey (Daisy Ridley) finds a way to stop them. They may be Dark side Force users, but they aren’t Sith.

Apart from them using the Force, the other question that fans have is whether the Knights of Ren have lighsabers. Kylo Ren was the only one who had a lighsaber in Rey’s vision. It remains to be seen if the others have this ancient weapons too.

Kylo Ren created the group, and he leads the Knights of Ren. “The Last Jedi” proved that both the group and its leader have faced some trials together to earn the position they are in now, Screen Rant reported. “Star Wars: Episode 9” may explore the origins of this group and explain what they have been doing all these years.

The fans got the first look at the Knights of Ren costumes and weapons in the Vanity Fair coverage of the film. A behind-the-scenes picture from the production set revealed that each member of this group has a unique mask and a unique weapon, just like their leader Kylo Ren.

The behind-the-scenes picture also confirmed that the Knights of Ren will be seen in a desert planet in “Star Wars: Episode 9.” Their mission on the planet and their role in the First Order will be revealed once the movie is released.
