Wedge Antilles

Wedge is "That Guy" that appears in every one of the original Star Wars movies, kicks as much ass as Han and Luke put together, yet gets exactly shit for credit in the movies (They ran out of Jack).

Jesus, Lucas. Give the guy a break already.

Just The Facts

  1. The actor who played Wedge is Ewan McGreggor's Uncle
  2. This helped him get the role of Obi Wan in the prequals
  3. Which ironically ensured that despite having one of the most important bit characters in the original trilogy, his fucking nephew would get more screen time in one movie than he got in 3.

Cracked on Wedge

First off, that has to be one of the worst section titles ever.

Now, if you are not familiar with Wedge, he was that guy who seemed to be extraordinarily competent and not dead considering he was a bit character in a war movie trilogy. He actually had more to do with Death Star destruction than Luke, who only blew up the first one. Wedge was at that battle and survived, and instrumental in blowing up the second one.

How could you miss that? Because George Lucas is a bit of a dick. And because he wasn't born the illegitimate son of the grand imperial wizard of space.
