I made a video this week about a story I reported on back in April pertaining to the celebrity Stormtroopers of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. I reported on the story back in April and a new image from EW seemed to confirm that the story, as the trooper formation was essentially depicted as it was in my old article from April.

When the event concluded and the fun fact wasn’t shared, I went ahead and moved forward with the article.
The Video I made in the middle of the night last week on a rare rainy night when I had my epiphany the story was confirmed:

It stands to reason that with one of the celebrities being confirmed in the piece, the other two are extremely likely to pan out as well. Between my sources being on the money with this and a lot of plot points being confirmed in the TV spots, I think it is worth betting on it all panning out.
Make sure you check out the original article which also details some past celebrity troopers I’ve broken in past articles on MakingStarWars.net as well.
Please make sure you contribute to this year’s Kessel Toy Run. We have Star Wars toys donated to hospitalized children and their siblings and it really means a lot to us that this event remain successful every year. When it barely seems worth being involved in the horribleness of the internet, I always remember this event and what it allows us to do for people every year.
