‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ has finally revealed the real star of the show: the Skywalker. Who am I kidding, of course it’s this new little fella, Babu Frik.
Official site from Star Wars has revealed an image of the guy.
This guy is a tiny Anzellan droidsmith. The site describes Babu as a smith who ‘works among the Spice Runners of Kijimi and can reprogram or modify virtually any droid — regardless of the security measures protecting its systems.’
Some of you might have actually seen the little guy during Triple Force Friday livestream event. Then, he was still a plastic toy and there isn’t much we know now except what they have revealed. Regarding that, Star Wars has also sealed a couple of sponsorships so we might be able to know more through this brands.
Confusing and depressing, but who else is excited to know what the little guy can and will do?
We also saw C-3PO in a place loaded with wires and this sounds awfully reminiscing of what Babu Frik can do. Might he be wired by Babu at some point in the movie? Just look at that pair of red lights that screams: ‘it’s time for some blood and massacre’.
Well, anyway, we’ll know everything this December 20.
