Can I Just Say…

With all of the pretty good news coming out of the Star Wars camp in recent weeks, it was disappointing to hear that Denis Lawson (Ewan “Obi-Wan Kenobi” McGregor’s uncle) has decided not to reprise his iconic role of Wedge Antilles in Star Wars: Episode VII because he would be bored by it. Now I understand that Wedge probably wouldn’t have had a big presence in the new sequel, and I respect Denis’s decision (after all, if you can’t get fully behind something, you’re better off not doing it), but it definitely would have been awesome if the one and only character who actually participated in, and survived, attacks on both Death Stars (not to mention the Battle of Hoth) made, at the very least, one last appearance alongside his fellow X-Wing pilot, Luke Skywalker.

It certainly isn’t the worst news in the world… so long as there isn’t another Death Star that needs to be destroyed!
