Star Wars Rogue One: The Cameo of Wedge Antilles that you have not noticed!

Cinema 31 January, 2017

And yes, the X-Wing Wedge Antilles pilot makes a cameo in Star Wars: Rogue One. But it is so short and unusual that you may not have noticed it!
Many are the characters of the saga to have made a small cameo in Star Wars: Rogue One ! But unlike Leia, C-3PO or the Grand Moff Tarkin, there is a character in the first trilogy who misses the call. The editorial ‘of melty will obviously speak of the pilot X-Wing Wedge Antilles (Denis Lawson), an old friend of Luke who is committed to the Rebel Alliance long before our hero crosses paths with Obi- Wan Kenobi. So, we would expect that the character makes an appearance in the film, as was the case with Red and Gold leaders who establish a direct link between Star Wars: Rogue One and Episode IV . But if Wedge does not point the tip of his nose, it is for two good reasons. Already because in A New Hope, it is clearly horrified by the size of the Death Star and exclaims elsewhere on this: ” ! Look at the size of that thing ,” proving that it was still Never seen the weapon of the Empire. So for consistency, Wedge could not participate in the battle of Scarif . And then there is another reason, more practical one, as we reveal Pablo Hidalgo, author at Lucasfilm . There simply were not enough unused images of A New Hope to allow Wedge to make a fleshy cameo.
Pablo Hidalgo said on Twitter: ” The amount of available sequences has also been a factor George has not turned so many unused scenes from Star Wars, as can be seen by mounting. ..” But be careful, this does not mean that Wedge is not present in the film, on the contrary! His cameo is however so fast and so is lost in action the moment, as that of Gareth Edward, director of Star Wars: Rogue One , it goes unnoticed. In reality, if we do not see Wedge in the film, one can however … listen ! Because yes, the character gives voice in a particular scene And this is where all the pilots of the Alliance still present on Yavin rush to their ships to launch to the assault of Scarif. This is Wedge effect you hear in the background and ordering pilots to prepare to attack the planet . The information comes directly from the sound editor Matthew Wood, who also revealed that it is David Ankrum, which already doubled Wedge Antilles in Star Wars: A New Hope (yes, we know, it’s very, very strange! ) Who pronounces this little phrase, taking again a role that he had not had the opportunity to play for forty years! So yes, in the end, the courageous Wedge Antilles has also, in its way, right to his cameo in Star Wars: Rogue One . Have you noticed this cameo?
