Keri Russell’s ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Character Looks SO BADA**

Looks like Keri Russell will be a bounty hunter in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, at least judging from the first photo of her character released today by Vanity Fair.

The photo was included in a preview of the magazine’s summer Star Wars spectacular, with photos by the one and only Annie Leibovitz.

Russell’s character is described as “masked scoundrel Zorri Bliss, seen in the Thieves’ Quarter of the snow-dusted world Kijimi.”

Snow huh? Sounds like that crew-gift tip off about a possible location for Episode IX was accurate!

We just can’t wait to see what Keri does.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to hit theaters on December 20th 2019.
