The crawl is doing its thing as ForceCenter’s Ken Napzok and Joseph Scrimshaw return to The Companion for Databank Dive Episode 1, the second most anticipated Episode 1 in Star Wars history.

In it, you’ll discover how Star Wars: Rogue One‘s badass Bistan captured their imaginations and vocal cords, and take a look at the hard-fighting Rebel primate’s complex inner life that Ken and Joseph have absolutely zero evidence for:

There is also Episode 2 right here – Covering death sticks and Obi-Wan’s greatest life lesson.

If you’re already hungry for more, The Companion’s very own Chris Hallam has written a profile of Bistan so YOU close that Wookiepedia tab RIGHT NOW and read our biography instead.

What is Databank Dive?

In each episode of Databank Dive, Ken and Joseph pick a random entry from StarWars.com’s databank or the Wookieepedia Star Wars dictionary and discuss whatever they find with insight, humor, and inclusive exploration of the very wide, weird galaxy far, far away.
