Wedge Antilles is Obi-Wan's uncle!


From a certain point of view...

In terms of the film, there is no familal relationship between Wedge and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Heck, they never met in the film canon.

However, in the real world, Dennis Lawson who played Wedge Antilles in the original trilogy is the uncle of a rather famous actor called Ewan McGregor !



Dennis's sister is Ewan's mother.

An interesting aside is that Wedge is the only minor character of the original trilogy to survive all three major battles being Yavin, Hoth and Endor.

Lawson is set to reprise his role as Wedge in The Rise of Skywalker.

Bad ass.

Some more facts on Wedge.

This page got hit by Reddit - and we learned that Ewan McGregor's brother is an RAF combat pilot and his call sign is Obi 2.
