ROGUE ONE: WHEN WICKET MET 'SPACE MONKEY'!
Originally known as "Space Monkey" when created for ROGUE ONE by Neal Scanlan and his dedicated Creature Team workshop at Pinewood, the cheeky new/old Rebel hero, later give the name Bistan from the Iakaru race, soon became an instant sensation with fans worldwide during his larger than life debut (on stage performed by Nick Kellington) at the London CELEBRATION 2016 event, especially the fun moment when he picked up and chucked a Wicket figure back at host Warwick Davis!
No matter how long or short his ultimate contribution to the film is, we can't wait to see him in action for the finale air/ground battle on the Imperial held tropical world of Scarif.
