Alan Tudyk Explains His Character ‘K-2SO’ From ‘Rogue One’

Star Wars Celebration Europe is going on this weekend, and Friday after the ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ panel Alan Tudyk gave more details on his character K-2SO.

“He (K-2SO) has a very dry delivery. He doesn’t realize what he’s saying is very funny,” said director Garth Edwards.

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ is directed by Edwards, and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen (IP Man), Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen of Hannibal fame, Alan Tudyk (as a motion capture character), and Riz Ahmed.

The film is a prequel to the original 1977 Star Wars, dealing with rebel efforts to convey Death Star blueprints to Leia Organa. The screenplay is by Chris Weitz, and the film is due in theaters on December 16.
