Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker co-writer Chris Terrio responded to a question regarding Wedge Antillies’ potential return.
Sheev Palpatine and Lando Calrissian are the most notable characters returning for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. They join a long list of original characters who have returned for the sequel trilogy. One character who has yet to appear in the new films is Wedge Antillies from the original trilogy. Wedge Antillies actor Denis Lawson is notoriously bitter with the Star Wars franchise and revealed in the past that he turned down a role in The Force Awakens.
Denis Lawson’s history with the Star Wars franchise made it seem unlikely that he would return as Wedge Antillies. This all changed when an older Wedge Antillies appeared on the cover of Resistance Reborn. This sparked speculation that Wedge Antillies may appear one last time in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Upproxx asked Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker co-writer Chris Terrio what it was like to write the words “Wedge,” to which he responded:
“I cannot answer that. Although, I’d love to speak to you after the film comes out about that very question. Unless you’re asking, ‘Can you wedge the ship between those other two ships?'”
Do you think Wedge Antillies will return in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? Any other characters you would like to see return? Comment below!
