Denis Lawson returns to Voice Wedge Antilles in Aardman’s Star Wars Visions Short

Wedge, of course, is the brave rebel who helped Luke and the gang destroy the first Death Star in A New Hope (or at least tried to, until ship damage forced him to drop out early). The luckiest X-wing pilot in the Star Wars universe also managed to survive the Battle of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back before finally playing a pivotal role in the destruction of the second Death Star in Return of the Jedi -Knight” played. Denis Lawson would reprise his role as Wedge for the 2001 video game Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II – Rogue Leader before making his live-action comeback with a brief cameo during the pivotal battle on Exegol in The Rise of Skywalker” celebrated.

“I Am Your Mother” features a Twi’lek mother and daughter taking part in what the short film’s creators have described as a “Star Wars” take on the “slightly absurd” British school tradition known as Sports Day, with Wedge moderated the event. Magdalena Osinska explained that she wanted the characters in the short to be non-human because that’s how she felt when she moved to the UK from Poland and how her mother feels when she visits them. It’s the latest example of Aardman gently and lovingly poking fun at British sporting traditions following the studio’s 2018 stop-motion feature film Early Man.

‘I Am Your Mother’ was screened for those in attendance after the ‘Visions’ celebration and the ‘Volume 2’ trailer is now online. You can see the full short film when the entire Volume 2 releases on Disney+ on May 4th, 2023.
