A Mon Calamari pilot flew an A-wing for the Rebel Alliance during the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY.

Behind the scenesEdit

This pilot was first revealed in a San Diego Comic Con 2011 teaser video promoting the deleted scenes included with the Blu-ray release of the six Star Wars films. The character is only seen for a moment, he is dressed in the same uniform as the A-wing pilots seen in Return of the Jedi.

The actual deleted material runs over two minutes and consists of someone off-screen telling the puppeteer what to "say" to the camera, and him repeating with the puppet.[1] The puppeteers are addressed as "Tim" and "Simon"; presumably Tim Rose and Simon Williamson, who also portrayed Gial Ackbar and Max Rebo, respectively.

Hasbro's Comic Con presentation revealed the character would have an action figure, and confirmed he is an A-wing pilot. This however may be an error since pre-existing shots featuring A-wing pilots, such as Arvel Crynyd, show that an A-wing cockpit looks radically different. The craft this Mon Calamari pilot is flying might be a B-wing instead. At one point in the footage the puppeteer is told to say "firing proton torpedos", a weapon typically not associated with A-wings.[1]
