“The materials, the color, the lines, there was something about the aesthetic of it that just felt absolutely right,” said J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker co-writer/director, in the exhibit’s video. “I cannot wait for people to see the work that everyone’s done.” Indeed, the mini-documentary offers a tantalizing glimpse behind the scenes at the making of the armor, and the results are striking.

You can see the Sith trooper, along with more screen-used armor from across the Star Wars films — including the Imperial stormtrooper, TIE pilot, death trooper, shoretrooper, biker scout, First Order stormtrooper, First Order TIE pilot, and Captain Phasma — at the Lucasfilm pavilion (booth #2913) at SDCC. Plus, be sure to check out all the Sith trooper exclusives available this weekend. All Star Wars, all the time.
