It’s Time To Introduce Our New Star Wars Characters!

Ahead of it’s release this Christmas, the guys over at A Galaxy Far Far Away have finally broken their tight lips and given us nerds something to fanboy over!

Entertainment Weekly broke the news of all the new character we will surely buy in Funko Pop form this coming December so lets get the round up on, quoting EW and Screenrant:


Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones): she’s a prisoner of the Rebel Alliance’s that’s being given the opportunity to commute her sentence. Abandoned at the age of 15, Erso has been on her own ever since, developing both her fighting skills and a knowledge of the galactic underworld along the way.

Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) is a “by-the-book” Rebel intelligence officer and, now, Jyn Erso’s handler.

Rumors began to yesterday of Forrest Whitaker’s character  and it has finally been confirmed that Whitaker will bring to life Saw Gerrera, a character who appeared in the animated Star Wars series.


Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen) is Chirrut’s close friend (and self-described bodyguard), using his armor and array of blasters to do the fighting for him.

Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed) is the new Rebel team’s pilot – and a “volatile” hot-head.

K-2SO (Alan Tudyk) is a tough-as-nails security droid that is neither fragile, like the prequels’ battle droids, nor all that concerned with human-cyborg relations.

Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen), Jyn’s estranged father, is still very under wraps.

Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn), who seeks nothing but to gain the good graces of his enforcer, Darth Vader, and his emperor, Palpatine, by using his elite squad of Deathtroopers to quell the Rebellion once and for all.
