New Rogue One Character Details including Shoretroopers
You read that right, there are stormtroopers designated as Shoretroopers in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
You can check out more details about these characters below:
Scarif Stormtrooper Commander
Specialist stormtroopers stationed at the top-secret Imperial Military headquarters on Skarif, Shoretroopers patrol the beaches and bunkers of the planetary facility.
Rebel Commando Pao
An amphibious Drabata, the fierce commando Pao charges into battle with a full-throated battle cry of “Sa’Kalla!” He joins the Rogue One team on its historic mission to secure the Death Star plans.
So we’re guessing that this guy would turn up towards the end when Jayne Erso and the rest of her squad makes the daring escape with the plans for the Death Star in tow. Or he could be there during that climatic sequence from the trailer where the gang gets trapped in the sights of AT-ATs.
Imperial combat drivers operate the Empire’s arsenal of armored repulsor vehicles. Combat drivers are highly armored, relying instead on the thick skin of their vehicles to protect them in the battle.
Have you seen the place they infiltrate in Rogue One? That place looks tougher to break than Fort Knoxx. The new movie will definitely expand the ranks of Stormtroopers and this one smells “deluxe action figure” written all around it.
Moroff seeks out combat zones to sell his brawn and firepower to anyone who might need it. The mighty Gigoran mercenary figures there’s money to be made for a towering heavy gunner.
Gigorans were never around the canon Star Wars universe but was first seen in a Star Wars book for kids. This will be the first time we get introduced to this species. It also strikes me like we have found our Chewbacca for the film. Although I’m pretty sure the furry guy would be relegated to one or two scenes at the most.
