While it's always great to catch up with familiar faces in the Star Wars universe, every movie introduces new characters to the series. The upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is no exception, and one of the most fascinating new additions is the mysterious Zorri Bliss, played by Keri Russell. A new image of Zorri has now been released.

The picture comes via Entertainment Weekly. It gives us a close look Zorri's distinctive helmet, as she looks at some sort of metal disc--could it be a storage disc, or perhaps a coin? Check it out below:

At Disney's annual D23 convention in August, Russell spoke about her character. "I had this amazing costume and this helmet, which I actually loved to wear and didn't take it off for the first two days," she explained. "I found it strangely empowering and exciting. [Zorri Bliss is] very cool and a little bit shady. She's kind of a criminal and sort of this old friend of Poe's."

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is directed by JJ Abrams, who previously helmed 2015's The Force Awakens. It also stars Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Mark Hamill as Luke, and Billy Dee Williams as Lando. Some new images from the movie were released earlier this month, and you can watch the latest trailer here. It hits theaters on December 20.

The Rise of Skywalker isn't the only highly-anticipated Star Wars release due in the next couple of months. In November, the first ever live-action Star Wars show The Mandalorian will hit the streaming platform Disney Plus. The first episode of the show will be available on November 12, which is the day the service launches. Watch the first Mandalorian trailer here, and check out everything we know about every upcoming Star Wars movie and TV show.
