Sith Troopers - rumoured to answer to Kylo Ren/KoR only.
On the salt planet this ground trouper would of made some sense, but the new creators haven't had any of that since the credits ended on Ep 7. Yawn... and like the above poster said, very obvious from the Disney money making machine and Hasbro.

here's an article trying to explain why it works....

This new transparency may reflect Kylo Ren's current state of mind. In 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Kylo expressed a desire to see the ways of old die out, and was clear to point out that the Sith were very much included in this culling. Now the undisputed leader of the First Order, Kylo appears to have had a change of heart, and is openly intertwining the Sith and the First Order.
Plot twist. LOL.

There’s been no doubling down; ever since Lucas secured the merchandising rights, Star Wars has become a cash cow to be milked. This is business as usual.
It is milking harder than ever, there was some hope a more pure execution of telling Star Wars stories would come of the new era, clearly that hasn't been the case.

hes probably onto something there. star wars cannot move forward anymore, theres nowhere it can go, and also TLJ was a closer. all they can do is make a time travel movie, the only thing star wars has yet to do.
It can, but it wont because its merch & money instead of opera and absurd.

Arguably TLJ was a secondary entry, where TFA was "original canon" entry in following on, TLJ was the polar opposite of "new & fresh" which schismed the fanchise a bit as it was both familiar and alien at the same time, so they don't have to do time related things.

They simply need to expand the universe, instead of blowing s**t up. Bring in the chiss, bring in actual sith, have philosophy instead of ordinance and classic opposition.

Not sure about time travel but could see movies after this being set in the past to dodge "What about the future of Skywalkers and Jedi?". If the first two of this trilogy are a guide Disney really don't want to put any effort into the setting of and explaining the future.

A New Hope-Return of the Jedi period is always there when they want to tap "Remember this???" nostalgia.

Old Republic-The Phantom Menace era if they want something new or more alien oriented but still want Jedis and lightsabers (which they will).

In light of the last couple years and recent spat of news regarding the direction of a couple movies......The Rise Of Skywalker will be the last cinematic movie I see.

I'm no longer paying to watch virtue signalling, PC propaganda in movies.

From now on it'll only be Podcasts, MMA and Playstation as my only source of entertainment.
