Meet the New ‘Star Wars’ Character Edrio Two Tubes From ‘Rogue One’ at Comic-Con
Preview night San Diego Comic-Con introduced the life-size statue of the newest pilot in the Star Wars universe at the Lucas Pavillon. His name is Edrio Two Tubes, and he’s a mercenary pilot we’ll see fighting the Empire alongside Forest Whittaker‘s Saw Gerrera in the Gareth Edwards film. Here’s his full character description from the exhibit, via the Star Wars Facebook page:
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.
Is it just me or does Two Tubes look a lot like Immortan Joe from Mad Max: Fury Road? Am I sensing a shared Star Wars and Fury Road universe?! Hmm, Two Tubes isn’t the only Rogue One character who oddly resembles Immortan Joe, and I’m not the only one who’s noticed.
Maybe Edwards is just a big fan of Fury Road. (Who isn’t?) At the very least, we can still except some very Star Wars-looking costumes to come out of the spinoff. At Star Wars Celebration Europe last week, ScreenCrush got an up close look at the film’s costumes and props.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens December 16, 2016.
