Thanks to some weird partnership between Lucasfilm and eight other brands, we now have our first official look at Babu Frik from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. He will probably play a key role in the film, especially if you believe some of the leaks that have been put out for TROS.

I won’t dive into those, as we’ve discussed some of the leaks in a cast, but according to StarWars.com, Babu is an Anzellan Droidsmith who works with the Spice Runners of Kijimi, and can hack the shit out of any droid in the galaxy.

His official description reads:

The tiny Anzellan droidsmith, first glimpsed in toy form during the Triple Force Friday livestream event, works among the Spice Runners of Kijimi and can reprogram or modify virtually any droid — regardless of the security measures protecting its systems.

Hmm, I wonder why Babu is in this movie (Not really be no spoiler talk in this post)? Red C-3PO eyes anyone?

Like I said, this little guy will clearly play a big role in TROS’s plot, and there’s a great chance he will do some tinkering with one of our favorite droids before the credits roll.
