The origins behind Wedge Antilles son of Captain Antilles!
The latest Star Wars Rebels episode maps out a new origin story of the great Wedge Antilles’ (the son of Captain Antilles) life before he became a rebel!
If you recall, Wedge was one of the X-Wing pilots in the Red Squadron that helped out in destroying the first Death Star in A New Hope; he and Luke led an attack with the Rogue Squadron against the Imperial AT-AT Walkers during the battle of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back; and he commanded the Red Squadron during the battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi.
Seeing Wedge with another character that I recognize, Derek “Hobbie” Klivian, in the new episode, it stands to reason that they both where cadets attending an Imperial flight training academy before they defected and joined the Rebel Alliance.
Here are some images of Wedge (along with Hobbie and Sabine Wren) below:
