But a few of Roth’s Twitter followers figures out who it might be.
Hooray! Derlin is my favorite minor Rebel officer. And as far as I knew, Ratzenberger hadn’t come back since ESB.

John Ratzenberger played the Rebel in The Empire Strikes Back, only having a little screen time. The Cheers star is best known in recent years for having a voice in every single Pixar film, from Hamm in Toy Story to Gordon in Brave. He will guest star in an upcoming episode of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Season Two, which returns to Disney XD in the USA on July 31.
The Brick Fanatics review of the first episode, ‘Trouble on Tibalt‘, gives a taste of what fans can expect from the new season.
