Although Lucasfilm has entrusted a great task to J.J. Abrams in "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", the ninth episode of the franchise that will close the history of the Skywalkers. However, Abrams also has space to introduce new pieces to this puzzle, as will be Jannah, played by Naomi Ackie.
In a new interview for L.A. Times, Ackie herself talks about her role but maintaining the characteristic secrecy of the franchise, just referring to the fact that her appearance must be important if it takes place in the last episode:
It means that any character that is introduced now must add to closing the story because we all know that it is the end of the Skywalker saga. Its importance in history must be relevant, and so it feels, definitely, about some characters and the global plot.
As for Jannah's personality itself, Ackie describes her as "fierce" and advances that his personal history is related to the plot, also says that “Once you understand why he is fighting empathy with them”. He ends by saying that even the weapon he carries, a bow, makes sense within the personal history of the character.
"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" It will arrive on December 21.
