Thank God, that sounded cheesy as hell.

And even further, the EU characters don't have name recognition amongst non die hard fans. I don't even know some of those named above.

Surely it is not Mace... you would just bring SLJ back for that, I'd assume.

Definitely agree. They did qualify it as to who would recognize, but the only EU character I can see them trying to squeeze into Rogue One would be Kyle Katarn, and Whitaker would be playing him in name only.

I have no idea, really.

No dumber than bringing maul back.

Just when I think it's been too quite and I need some more Star Wars in my life, this comes out. I'll speculate wildly.

Panaka or Typho seem like the most obvious. He seems a little old to be Kyle Katarn IMO. He's also too old to be Zare Leonis from Rebels.

I'm going to throw out a really wild possibility: Saw Gerrera of Onderon from TCW.

You beat me to it, I think this has to be it. After all, he was basically the OG Rebel.

I was def kidding. He dead!

I'm taking my brain (and Google Images). I've got nothing. His armor looks like it may have some life support aspects, but that doesn't help.

Good call.

Seeing as he is mentioned in both rebels and bloodlines

It's Djando. The D is silent.

In my mind, the Onderon rebel cell is the same basic idea that gave us the crew of the Ghost in Star Wars Rebels. It being Saw just makes too much sense at this point. More than one TCW character has appeared in Rebels at this point, and Saw Gerrera was named in an episode this season by Kallus. If Whitaker indeed is Saw, then I full expect Saw to make an appearance in Rebels this coming season.

Saw had direct connection to Rex and Ahsoka. I expect there to be a mention of him having seen the impossible be possible or something like that. This would also satisfy the requirement of one of the characters giving a history lesson of some sort. Kenobi did it in Star Wars, and Han did it in TFA. Which means I fully expect him to die.

I'm going with Willrow Hood

a.k.a Ice Cream Maker Guy

Maybe Rogue One will show how he gets the Ice Cream Maker?

Which comic was it that explained the history of the ice cream maker?

I seem to remember it was infused with the force because it was used to make ice cream for all of the younglings birthday parties. But there was something about it being lost after sidious used it to make chocolate ice cream for a young darth maul and a Prophecy about a discarded make being found on a backwards planet that could bring harmony to the force by swirling the light and dark sides together

Well, I thought about throwing Dash Rendar out there but thought that was a little too far out there. Padme's security would have been a little too obscure given how I had to think hard on their names. After spider-Maul, I doubt they would resurrect Mace. That left it either being a clone trooper from TCW, or some other character we had seen in the past. A little searching and I found that image, and it sealed the deal for me.

This might mean something to me if I'd seen CW. I really should get around to it.

I'm sure it's been recommended before, but pick up an episode guide/viewing order on reddit or wherever. Watch them sequentially and skip the hated episodes.

EW has confirmed that the character we were dancing around not mentioning yesterday will definitely be in the film, and for an additional bonus guess who is doing the talking?

The filmmakers didn't want to explain exactly what's happening here, but they confirm: yes, that's a Stormtrooper doll, a galactic version of a toy soldier. And it will have special significance in the story. (Decades later, an abandoned girl name Rey will also fashion a doll for herself this one an X-wing pilot.)

Say what now?
