SDCC: 'Star Wars' Introduces New 'Rogue One' Character

While everyone's still obsessing over Space Monkey, aka Bistan, Lucasfilm has debuted another new character from "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Visitors to the Lucasfilm Pavilion can get an up-close look at Edrio Two Tubes -- or at least a life-size replica of him -- a mercenary pilot who flies alongside his eggmate Benthic. Here's the official character description:

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.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, the film stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Jonathan Aris. "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" opens Dec. 16.
