Guess Who Should Star in ‘Rangers of the New Republic’?

There have been rumors that Cara Dune would end up getting her own spin-off series and it seems like she will with Rangers of the New Republic but I just realized another fabulous character that would make a fine addition to the series; Wedge Antilles.

In the Aftermath Trilogy we learn that Wedge plays a large role in taking down the Galactic Empire during the Battle of Jakku. Following the Battle of Jakku we know that he is a flight instructor on Hosnian Prime and that he eventually gets married to Temmin “Snap” Wexley’s mother Kare Kun where they settle on the planet Akiva until the battle between the Resistance and the First Order (hence that ridiculous cameo in The Rise of Skywalker.)

But what if we can fill in a bit of those gaps and make him a key figure in the Rangers of the New Republic series? He’s been a beloved Star Wars character since his induction in 1977’s A New Hope. Why wouldn’t Favreau and Filoni get a chance to expand his storyline in a series that is destined to be pretty cool?

What do you think? Do you see want to see Wedge Antilles in Rangers of the New Republic? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

A Beloved ‘Star Wars’ Character Returns

The Rise of Skywalker is the finale of the Skywalker saga and J.J Abrams is going all out by bringing back some fan-favorites to grace his film. The latest character confirmed to return to a galaxy far, far away is rebel pilot, Wedge Antilles.

Wedge is the only rebel character to appear in all three Original Trilogy films, making him one of the greatest heroes in the franchise.

Apparently, he’s come back to the forefront to save the day alongside the Resistance and I can’t help being legitimately excited to see this movie. The Rise of Skywalker is sure to be a fun ride for Star Wars fans of all ages.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.
