Star Wars has revealed a first look at Keri Russell’s character Zorri Bliss in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker movie.
Russell’s character outfit and design was revealed in Vanity Fair. They described her as a “masked scoundrel.” She’s seen walking through the Thieves’ Quarter in a snow-dusted world called Kijimi.
Take a look:
Russell hasn’t revealed anything about her character except for the fact that she has “the coolest costume.”
Vanity Fair’s Joanna Robinson described Bliss’ suit noting that her mask not only disguises her identity, but her motives as well. She also indicates that the war between the First Order and the New Republic has become quite profitable for rogues and scoundrels who “avoid picking a side.”
Fans reacted to the character design:

Looks more like someone out of Destiny than Star Wars but I’ve missed her since Felicity that’s only because she doesn’t return my phone calls. I’ve been on hold since 02. Lol. There’s everyone’s deep cut callback for the day.

I’m liking it but I really hope they fix the lighting on the helmet. It looks almost CG on that dark background

Is this another character people will hype up who has ten minutes of screen time like Brienne of Hoth

Please be an actual RAD character who does RAD things instead of just looking RAD. (Boba Fett/Phasma)

Such a rad costume!

It’s a nice costume. Let’s hope it’s not another character designed to sell toys like Captain Phasma was. What a disappointing joke of a character. She’s a good actress and was totally wasted.

A number of fans already began throwing out theories surrounding Russell’s character.
Keri Russell’s “Zorri Bliss” is really, Mara Jade Skywalker. She’s the one, who trains Rey, at the beginning of the trailer.
Just a theory.

I think she’s in some way related to Rey. The planet seems similar to the one of the teaser, reached by a ship that looks like the one of Rey’s vision, Quite sure of that.

Not only will Russell star in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as Zorri Bliss, but she is also rumored to take on the role of Martha Wayne in Matt Reeves’ upcoming Batman flick.
What do you make of the costume design? What are your expectations for the character?
