For the past few hours, all Star Wars fans have been in turmoil after the surprise appearance of a trailer for a new Star Wars series. Called Knights of Ren, it would center on the Knights of Ren, this group of elite Force-sensitive warriors led by Kylo Ren. Only, difficult to know for the moment if the trailer is fake or authentic.
You may have spotted him hanging out on Twitter after watching Episode 3 of The Book of Boba Fett. Indeed, Star Wars fans are in turmoil after the surprise release a trailer for a brand new Star Wars series. baptized Knights of Ren, it would obviously be centered on the Knights of Ren, a group composed of merciless and force-sensitive elite warriors whose leader is none other than Kylo Ren.
You may have seen them in particular Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker, where they are easily eliminated by a Kylo Ren turned back into Ben Solo. A passage that will not have failed to make fans of the universe wink. This may perhaps explain the excitement around the trailer released this morning. But then, what exactly do we see there?

Star Wars Knights of Ren: scam or authentic trailer?
The footage shows a member of the Knights of Ren, whose design is eerily reminiscent of Sauron from Lord of the Rings, jump from his TIE fighter onto an X-Wing. He then draws his lightsaber to slice through part of the ship, causing it to crash. Once the aircraft is on the ground and totally destroyed, we see the knight strike a pose on the carcass, two red lightsabers in hand. End clap, then appearance of the title on a black background: Knights of Ren, a Star Wars Story. The Disney+ logo follows, which leads one to think that it will be a film or a series for the platform.
In the first place, it must be admitted that the trailer remains impressive, the special effects are of quality, the animation is very clean, and the dubbing of the voice-over (which recalls the voice of Snoke besides) seems authentic. Nevertheless, several elements lead us to question the legitimacy of this trailer. First of all, the mention a Star Wars Story has always attributed to Star Wars movies until now, like RogueOne Where Solo.
In fact, we could very well be in front of a film, but it is difficult to see Disney reserve a Star Wars feature film on its platform only. Or, we are in front of the very first series stamped “Story”. It should be remembered that a Star Wars: A Droid Story series has already been confirmed by the firm with big ears. Another point raised in particular by the fans, the Knights of Ren have never been equipped with lightsabers… Of course, there is the last option: it is an extremely well made fake and therefore there is no reason to get carried away. And you, what is your opinion on this trailer? Tell us in the comments.
