Dressed in fatigues, Monaghan's character is holding a blaster rifle along with another weapon in his side holster. Could this be a clue he'll be a member of the Resistance?

In addition to Monaghan, other new characters appearing in The Rise of Skywalker include Jannah (played by Naomi Ackie); Allegiant General Pryde (Richard E. Grant); and Zorri Bliss (Keri Russell).

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is out in theaters on Dec. 20.
