Oh boy. And you thought Star Wars: The Force Awakens was only going to reunite us with Han Solo, Chewbacca, Leia and Luke. But, no, a few of the galaxy’s most beloved characters are going to make their triumphant return—and hopefully they have some good one-liners to boot.
Star Wars 7 acquired a few production images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and if you’re a longtime Star Wars fan, you’ll know exactly who they are. Well, you’ll know two of them. The other one, Greg Grunberg, looks like he’ll have a bit-part role as an X-Wing pilot, though he probably won’t have a great affect on the overall story. As the legend goes, Grunberg grew up with J.J. Abrams, and consistently shows up in his movies, so there doesn’t appear to be much importance surrounding his casting.
The real important part is that Admiral Ackbar, who shouted one of the best Star Wars lines ever, is going to return, as is Nien Nunb; Nunb, if you remember, was part of Lando Calrissian’s crew, and is mostly famous for his laugh. It’s unlikely these two characters will play a big part in the upcoming tale, but it’s a nice nod from Abrams, who is clearly trying to keep the spirit of the original Star Wars trilogy intact.
At least we know that if anything suspicious takes place, we’ll know it’s a trap with Admiral Ackbar around. I wonder how often he’s been going around the galaxy yelling that at people since Return of the Jedi. If he says it in The Force Awakens, people are going to lose their marbles.
In addition to these shots of some familiar faces, another leak has revealed a new character in the Star Wars Universe.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
