For the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, we were introduced to an all new alien that will make his debut in Rogue One: Edrio Two Tubes.
From the official Star Wars Facebook page description of Edrio, he’s one bad dude:
"Edrio Two Tubes is a mercenary pilot who flies alongside his eggmate, Benthic. The two share the nickname derived from the breathing apparatus that allows their Tognath physiology to process oxygen atmospheres. Edrio’s home world Yar Togna was conquered and occupied by the Empire, forcing him to flee as a refugee. Desiring to strike back at the Empire, Edrio and Benthic have allied with Saw Gerrera."
Ah, so we have members of Saw’s group showing up and joining our rebels, as they attempt to steal the plans to the original Death Star. Just have a full-length look at Edrio, as well as his weapon of choice. I have a feeling we are going to be seeing him putting that rifle of his into action, in Rogue One.
I wonder if we’ll get more members of Saw Gerrera’s group showing up in the second trailer for Rogue One on Thursday night. If so, I hope they are as diverse as these aliens that director Gareth Edwards has unveiled, so far.
We want to know what you think: Are these characters and their descriptions for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story getting you super-excited for this Thursday night’s second theatrical Rogue One trailer? Let us know in the comments below, and on social media.
