We’re still busy watching the Star Wars Rebels season three trailer that premiered at Star Wars Celebration Europe over the weekend. One of the biggest trailer reveals was the appearance of Rebel pilot Wedge Antilles, who first appeared in A New Hope back in 1977. The trailer shows Wedge just before he deflects to the Rebellion – making his appearance all the more interesting for Star Wars fans.

In a series on tweets posted after the trailer’s debut, former iCarly star Nathan Kress revealed he is the voice behind fan-favorite Wedge and shared his excitement to be a part of the Star Wars universe, calling this role a “dream come true.”

Just what involvement Wedge will have in Star Wars Rebels’ upcoming third season remains to be seen, but we will be over here impatiently waiting for answers when Rebels premieres this fall on DisneyXD!
