Star Wars fans are remembering Leia Organa star Carrie Fisher on what would have been her 63rd birthday. While on a flight from London to Los Angeles, Fisher suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized for four days before passing away on December 27, 2016, at the age of 60.

Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. Its sequel, The Last Jedi, featuring Fisher’s final performance as Leia, would be released posthumously in 2017.

Kylo Ren’s squad briefly popped up in Rey’s lightsaber-induced ‘Force-back’ sequence, a tantalisingly brooding shot of the mysterious crew surrounding the sequel trilogy’s corrupted villain.

But with filmmaker JJ Abrams back on board for Episode IX – The Rise Of Skywalker, the Knights Of Ren are back in the picture – and Empire has a world exclusive new image of them, as seen in the upcoming November issue.
