‘Rogue One’ Character Cards Reveal New Cast Members


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters in just over a month, but two new cast members have now been revealed thanks to the Topps Star Wars Card Trader app.

First up, Paul Kasey (Doctor Who) will be playing Edrio Two Tubes. Kasey portrayed X-wing pilot Ello Asty in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, who was killed towards the end of the movie during the assault on Starkiller Base. As for his Rogue One character, Edrio is a Tognath bounty hunter who works with Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera and whose home was destroyed by the Empire.

In addition to Edrio, Kasey also played Admiral Raddus. This character is of the same race as Admiral Ackbar, but his skin color is different due to the fact that he belongs to a group of Mon Calamari from the colder regions of Mon Cala.

Details about Bistan are scarce at the moment, but we do know that the character is an ally of the Rebel Alliance and helped steal the plans for the Death Star.
