There’s going to be a lot of new characters in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and that includes Zorri Bliss, a bounty hunter-like character set to be played Keri Rusell. There hasn’t been a lot of information about Zorri Bliss, but we’ve been given first look photos of the character, and she looks very much like a scoundrel.

Taking that in mind, Star Wars fans have been busy cooking up all sorts of stories about Zorri Bliss. According to one of the most recent fan theories about the character on Reddit, the bounty hunter may very well be sent on a mission to hunt down Finn (John Boyega) and bring him back to the First Order in The Rise of Skywalker.

While it might not make sense to have Finn brought back to the First Order, it’s possible that Finn, as a new agent of the Resistance, might have a bounty on his head in the upcoming Star Wars entry. We can see the First Order searching for Finn, hoping to punish and kill the Stormtrooper-Turned-Resistance-Fighter agent.

It would definitely be interesting to see a bounty hunter like Zorri Bliss after Finn. Nothing good happens to those who run away from the First Order, and Bliss could definitely work as the shadow of the First Order. Maybe we’d get a few interesting battle scenes between Finn and Bliss too.

What are your thoughts on the new theory? Do you think Bliss is out to hunt Finn? Or maybe another character in Episode IX?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres December 20, 2019.
