    Luke Skywalker - will be without his wingman.

    Wedge Antilles Won't Return For 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Because Denis Lawson Is 'Bored' By It

    The Huffington Post | by Matthew Jacobs

    JJ Abrams spent the better part of two years waiting to see if Princess Leia, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker would star in "Episode VII," but it turns out J.J. Abrams attempted to tap into the much deeper well of characters from the original "Star Wars" trilogy. Denis Lawson played top-notch Rebel Alliance pilot Wedge Antilles, and this weekend he revealed that Abrams approached him about reprising the role in the forthcoming movie.

    "Iím not going to do that," Lawson told The Courier in the U.K. while promoting "The Machine." "They asked me, but it just would have bored me."

    Translation: "Wedge" dressed in full rebel pilot regalia, and spent hours waiting outside the JJ Abram offices, in order to beg them to allow him to be a part of SW VII.

    When Abrams said "lol, no".....
