'Star Wars 9' Set Pics Reveal New Hero in the Resistance

By TheBlast Staff

The next chapter in the "Star Wars" saga is currently in production, and it appears they're teaming Chewbacca up with a new badass to take on the First Order.

According to set photos, obtained by The Blast, Poe and Finn are seen walking around a desolate landscape as the production films from a secret location in the U.K.

They meet up with Chewbacca, and an unknown character played by actress Naomi Ackie. According to Star Wars aficionados, after the events of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," what was left of the rebellion spread out around the galaxy. Chewbacca's character reportedly teamed up with Ackie, who is a grassroots leader in the resistance.

No shots of Rey or BB-8, but if the rebellion is once again being assembled, they can't be far behind.
