New Rogue One Character Revealed. Meet Mercenary Pilot Edrio Two Tubes!

Edrio Two Tubes 06

San Diego Comic Con is about to start today. Yesterday was preview night and Lucasfilm’s Pavilion (booth 2913) had an interesting reveal to the fans. Together with some familiar Rogue One characters they have on display a new alien named Edrio Two Tubes. Read on for the details on this new character.



You can get a clear idea of  Lucasfilm’s booth via this tweet from LFL’s Matt Martin:




Although there are not a lot of details about this new character, the official Star Wars Facebook page revealed some details about him:

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


And here are some more photos via the official Star Wars Instagram page:

    Really excited for the whole Saw Gerrara aspect of this film. Even more than the actual rebels.

    This has got the be my new favourite design in R1 design <3

    The helmet looks really familiar… is it a slightly repurposed head from one of the TFA droids at Maz’s castle?

    • July 21, 2016 at 2:50 pm

      I thought it looked familiar, too, but I was thinking the Kel-Dor species (Plo Koon)

      • July 21, 2016 at 3:00 pm

        I poked around and found the pics from the Annie Liebovitz Vanity Fair shoot prior to the release of TFA… This IS the droid I was looking for 🙂

        So not quite the same afterall, just familiar.

        • July 21, 2016 at 3:03 pm

          Similar in shape maybe but that goes for almost every mask with humanoid features doesn’t it?

    • July 21, 2016 at 2:59 pm

      Do you think it’s some kind of chitin exoskeleton combined with cybernetics or a complete mask. i would really love to see how the second Togna looks like.

    • July 21, 2016 at 7:16 pm

      Reminds me of Bumblebee from Transformers.

      • July 21, 2016 at 7:25 pm

        Good shout, definitely a hint of him in there…

  • July 21, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    Is that Tom Hardy?

    • July 21, 2016 at 9:41 pm

      if it is, we will never know what he is saying…

      • July 22, 2016 at 6:14 am

        Just like in the first trailer to Batman The Dark Knight Rises hahaa

        Before they redid his voice to sound more audible.

        • July 22, 2016 at 6:24 am

          Great actor but my wife and I crack up everytime…we use his bane voice in all his movies,,,too funny.

  • July 21, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    Like the character, dont care much about the name, reminds me of the podracers pilots in TPM

    • July 21, 2016 at 3:47 pm

      Legend has it, that if Mars and Venus align in a fullmoon night and you kill a threeheaded goat in Stonehenge, then and only then, will Gerry Blue post a positive comment about Star Wars 😉

        Glad to know I have a following, and none other than artist extraordinaire Bob Ross. I LIKE the character and his/her look, the name, be honest, is really lazy. “Two tubes”? here, let’s use our brains for a little while and come up with a cool name, shall we?

        • July 21, 2016 at 9:15 pm

          I’m pretty sure the name is a nick-name given to him by his peers in his battalion.

        • July 22, 2016 at 6:13 am

          Edrio “Two-Tubes” (Last name not revealed)

          Just like Pete “Maverick” Mitchell or Nick “Goose” Bradshaw. That’s not too unoriginal.

          Would you rather they just call him Edrio, or something like Edrio Barnabas???

    • July 21, 2016 at 4:33 pm

      I guaran-fucking-tee that’s a background character whose name we never hear any more than we heard the names of the cantina patrons.

  • July 21, 2016 at 3:37 pm

    I hope for Episode 8 title

    • July 22, 2016 at 3:30 am

      No thanks

    • July 22, 2016 at 6:09 am

      Meh, no Ezra and not titled Knights of Ren, the rest is cool.

  • July 21, 2016 at 3:56 pm

    How many Star Wars characters on film have the Darth Vader-esque box on their belly? Is this only the second time or am I forgetting someone? Just on film, not the comics or concept art.

    • July 21, 2016 at 4:11 pm

      Reminds me of the TIE fighter pilots apparatus with the tubes.

      • July 21, 2016 at 7:15 pm

        Rebel pilots have a similar apparatus with a tube leading into the suit.

    • July 21, 2016 at 4:24 pm

      I think that yeti sloth creature in the Rogue one trailer had something similar too. Star wars has a unique desgin and some elements that make an ordinary design more starwarsy. The chest panel is one of them. However i am ok with that because i think they make sense. Since there are so many diffrent species some of them require a breathing apparatus which itself needs energy. Now you could carry that battery on your back but it would be really uncomfortable when sittiing a chair. placing it in the relatively immobile chest are makes sense to me, not only in form but also function.

    • July 22, 2016 at 2:08 am

      Makes sense that there’s some standard life-support apparatus that can be tweaked for a wide variety of life forms and environments.

  • July 21, 2016 at 5:24 pm

    he kind of reminds me of Plo Koon

  • July 21, 2016 at 9:50 pm

    mixture of c3po, darth malgus, tusken and ploo koon…but very cool looking.

    • July 22, 2016 at 6:08 am

      Yeah this a pretty cool design. Neal Scanlan and his team haven’t disappointed on the new creature designs, that’s for sure.

      Looks like Edrio has a 18th Century looking rifle too hahaa
