Hot full frontal spaceship action!
If you’ve been following the podcast or one of our latest articles on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, you know that Bespin Bulletin and I have had a lot of conversations about the ship we saw in Episode IX’s first teaser trailer. Interestingly, we’ve both had looks at the ship and together with our artist friend ęvān we’re bringing you the best look at the ship we possibly can. I think the team did a pretty good job of and if our depiction was a wanted poster, this ship would be behind bars in no time.
Zorri Blisster in the Sun?
From the sound of things, it seems like Zorri Bliss is going to appear like a villain in the film for a short time but we will learn in the narrative that she’s on the side of Rey and the Resistance’s rebellion. I’ve heard she helps the heroes escape Kijimi, the planet with snow on it that Zorri Bliss has scenes on. We tried to figure out if Zorri ever ends up on the Jordan locations and we don’t think so but it still remains inconclusive.
Bespin Bulletin has seen the ship flying with the heroes and Zorri is placed with our heroes and never the villains in extraneous materials he’s empirically witnessed.
We have some reason to think the ship is pretty important. The obvious part is that it looks like the ship that dropped Rey off on Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I’ve heard that Rey comments on the familiarity of the ship itself in the film as well. The film showed the shuttle “peace out” on little Rey and we see the blue thrusters leaving the world and Rey behind. In the the teaser for IX we see a ship from the rear that resembles it pretty closely, also from behind.
Our first look at the ship!
The depiction below was drawn by ęvān after extensive discussions between Bespin Bulletin and MakingStarWars.net. We went light on detail and instead focused on shape and character of the ship itself and I think we got pretty close to depicting the ship from the front in an accurate yet general way.
Is the ship in the trailer the ship that dropped Rey off on Jakku? Does the ship belong to Zorri Bliss who is seen on the planet where we see the ship in the trailer? It seems possible with what we know at this moment that the ship could be the ship that dropped Rey off on Jakku and or belongs to Zorri Bliss. This ship is seen next to other Resistance vehicles and even the Millennium Falcon.

And massive thank you to ęvān for his patience and time in helping us bring this depiction of the ship to light during a very slow news week so make sure you follow him on Twitter! A little team work from the Star Wars community and we at least have something to look at today.
