Images of three supporting characters from The Force Awakens have been revealed including Ackbar, Nien Nunb, and newcomer Gorwyn.
Ackbar has been rumored for a while, and this is confirmation of who Greg Grunberg is playing in The Force Awakens. For a while Star Wars 7 News had been claiming that he would be the new owner of the Millennium Falcon. Despite the documentation that gave everyone the plot of the movie not supporting there being a new owner of the Falcon, they ran a big story doubling down on that theory.
Grunberg’s character has been believed to be named Gorwyn for a while. MakingStarWars posted a piece on how Gorwyn fits into the story, and he appears to be this trilogy’s Wedge as he’s an X-Wing pilot along side Poe Dameron.
Today Star Wars 7 News posted the following photos from a publicity shot session, which confirm that Grunberg is playing the X-Wing pilot Gorwyn in the film:
Expect to see a lot more stuff like this come out as we’re now only six months away from The Force Awakens. There will be a panel at SDCC next month, and then a big blow-out at D23 Expo a month later. Almost there!
