One of the many unsung heroes of the Rebel Alliance, Wedge Antilles has the distinction of being the only Rebel pilot to survive the attacks on both Death Stars. He also fought alongside Luke Skywalker as a member of the legendary Rogue Squadron at the Battle of Hoth. After the events of Return of the Jedi, Wedge assumed command of Rogue Squadron, turning it into a specialized elite team made up of the best pilots with the best fighters. Wedge would command Rogue Squadron for several years, before being moved up the ranks of the New Republic, eventually becoming Supreme Commander of Correllias Armed Forces.
Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., the Wedge Antilles Mini Bust features the renowned pilot in his signature flight suit and helmet, wielding a Blaster. Crafted using only the highest quality polystone, each limited-edition hand-painted mini bust comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching certificate of authenticity. May the Force be with you.
The first film in the series, Star Wars (later subtitled Episode IV: A New Hope), was released on May 25, 1977 by 20th Century Fox and became a worldwide pop culturephenomenon. It was followed by the similarly successful sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983); these three films constitute the original Star Wars trilogy. A prequel trilogy was later released between 1999 and 2005, which received a more mixed reaction from critics and fans, compared to the original trilogy. All six films were nominated for or won Academy Awards, and were commercial successes, with a combined box office revenue of $4.38 billion, making Star Wars the fifth-highest-grossing film series. The series has spawned an extensive media franchise—the Star Wars expanded universe—including books, television series, computer and video games, and comic books, resulting in significant development of the series’s fictional universe. Star Wars also holds a Guinness World Records title for the “Most successful film merchandising franchise.” In 2012, the total value of the Star Wars franchise was estimated at USD $30.7 billion, including box-office receipts as well as profits from their video games and DVD sales.
In 2012, The Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm for $4.06 billion and announced three new Star Wars films; the first film of that trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was released on December 18, 2015. 20th Century Fox retains the physical distribution rights to the first two Star Wars trilogies, owning permanent rights for the original 1977 film and holding the rights to Episodes I–III, V and VI until May 2020. The Walt Disney Studios owns digital distribution rights to all the Star Wars films, excluding A New Hope.
