Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is one of those films from the franchise that fans are equally excited about yet worried about. Much has been said about the plot of the film and there has been a general vibe that the makers may be going too far with creative liberties. Last night, makers of the film revealed the all-new Sith Trooper. Yes, they called it the Sith Tropper, which basically looks like a Storm Trooper painted red. While not much is known at this point about the role of the Sith Trooper in the film, fans are already unhappy with it.
The Sith Trooper debuted at the San Diego Comic Con and we are not sure how we feel about it. The red is flashy but it somehow does not give us any 'Sith' vibe. The new character has left fans confused too and now they are wondering if the makers will someday even come up with something like a Sith Jedi considering there's nothing like old times in this new Disney presented Star Wars. Star Wars: Episode IX Teaser: Ian McDiarmid’s Emperor Palpatine Returns and Daisy Ridley's Rey is Determined to Fight Him (Watch Video).
As soon as the Sith Trooper look was released, social media was full of strong reactions from fans of the franchise who have stayed on for years and are now watching it slip further away from its original storyline. Here are some of the reactions about the Sith Trooper.
"how much do you want us to make the new trooper look like reeboks?"

Can we talk about the fact that every red trooper thus far has been acting as guards in some capacity or another? Which Sith would these "Sith Troopers" be guarding... #StarWars #TheRiseofSkywalker #SithTrooper #Palpatine pic.twitter.com/xs0tuHyxdB
