There are swirling rumors that the Royal Guards are making its way on “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” to protect the mysterious evil villain, Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis). However, the Sentinels are said to have a new look but still inspired by the red-cloaked worn by the protectors of the Emperor in “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.”

The new royal guards’ attire and armors

According to Making Star Wars, these Royal Guards will be called Elite Preatorian Guards and will be clad with the same red-colored fabric, but it won’t be the body-length robe seen in the original trilogy. However, the fan site revealed that each watcher will don different outfit.

The sentries will also have different armors; some will use “nunchucks” while others will use “double-bladed fighting sticks.” The ornamental spear has a large blade and a small, pink-flamed, electrified blowtorch-like attached underneath.

They, too, wear different helmets and fabric patterns, but their main body armor placed on their chest and arms seem to be similar. Aside from their arms, their heads and torsos are also completely covered with a shiny red scalloped armor.

A battle of the Dark and Light Side

Moreover, the Elite Preatorian Guards are said to have a number of scenes in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” They will be with Supreme Leader Snoke aboard the royal flagship of the First Order.

In fact, the fan site also revealed that there might be a sequence that these protectors will accompany Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) as he goes his way to Ahch-to to face Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

This is said to be a major fight scene that fans are about to see in the movie’s ninth episode. However, this should only be taken with a grain of salt as nothing is confirmed yet.

Supreme Leader Snoke’s possible origin

Additionally, the character of the sequel trilogy’s new villain has been shrouded in mystery. In fact, there are a lot of theories and assumptions swirling about his real identity.

Some say he is connected to the real parentage of Rey, while others say that he has something to do with Kylo Ren’s transformation. The Force-sensitive humanoid alien is even somehow associated to Luke Skywalker, who will try his best to find and bring the big bad down.

Hence, fans are still trying to solve the mystery of Supreme Leader Snoke’s origin. As a matter of fact, Movie Web reported that there are strong assumptions that he is from the Unknown Regions of the “Star Wars” universe.

In the third and final book of Chuck Wending, “Aftermath: Empire’s End,” which bridges the gap between “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” it revealed that the relics of the Empire went to the Unknown Regions. Then, Supreme Leader Snoke absorbed the last pieces of the Empire into his own forces, embraced their ways, formed the new First Order, and went back to the galaxy to fight the Rebels again.
