With the power of hindsight and having actually played the game, I can see what they were going for with Cristina as Edelgard despite the trailer's lack of context for her lines. In the flashes we got to hear of her, I interpreted her Edelgard as someone mild who takes over a larger situation, while Tara brings out her authority as more of a front to mask her doubts. Basically different sides of the coin.
I missed hearing Tara in dubs and while I was ho-hum about Three Houses' dub overall, there's no doubt bringing her in was a great idea. Edelgard is authoritative, introspective, and above all a highly complex character, and luckily both of her VAs are talented enough to pull that off, but Tara ended up the dub's highlight for me. This was a great comeback to JRPGs for Tara and I hope to hear more of her in them again, and while Cristina has played Tatiana in Echoes and various roles in Heroes, I'm sure she'll get to play a character like Edelgard to a greater extent in the future.
