From Disney and director Gareth Edwards, comes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Taking place before the events in the original movie Episode IV, Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed. The film is scheduled for release December 16, 2016.
Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.
The official Star Wars Facebook page has the following description for Edrio Two Tubes (who we saw briefly during the latest behind-the-scenes sizzle reel):
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.
You can get a good look at Edrio on display at this year’s San Diego Comic Con 2016 in the fourth moon of Yavin display – which is also loaded with Star Wars merch.
