Tim Rose who played Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi has expressed his disappointment with the way his character was killed off in The Last Jedi.
Rose was also disappointed that Ackbar, a fan favourite character by any standard, was not given a larger role in the sequel trilogy and was essentially used as a joke at the end of filming.
Here's the full interview with YouTuber Jamie Stangroom (whose channel is well worth a subscribe, by the way):
Disney have revealed a schedule which pinpoints the movie release dates across their vast empire of brands, including Star Wars.
Three Star Wars movies have been assigned release dates, but no further information accompanies the untitled movies. The movies are set for release in 2022, 2024, and 2026, which is a distinctive enough pattern that it isn't too much of a stretch to speculate that these are the Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy that was announced back in 2017.

Rian Johnson's last foray into Star Wars was the divisive second episode of the sequel trilogy, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it is widely expected that his trilogy will pick up on some of the unresolved threads from that film.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will release this December, leaving us with a three-year gap before the next Star Wars film hits the big screen.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi has officially hit theatres around the world, and the critics reviews have been overwhelmingly positive about Rian Johnson's new direction for the Star Wars saga.
Rotten Tomatoes currently has a critics score of 93% - certified fresh - but the general public has been much more divided, with only 56% being satisfied by The Last Jedi. Metacritic is currently scoring The Last Jedi with a very positive 86.
Empire gave The Last Jedi four stars, saying that the film "delivers everything you want from a Star Wars movie" and comments on the surprising ways it delivers thrills and feels.
Rolling Stone branded it "The Empire Strikes Back for the next generation". Their 3.5 star review commented on the crowded plot, but applauded the performances of Mark Hamill and the late Carrie Fisher.
"There are fan-pleasing moments, for sure, but nothing is included without a purpose", said IGN as they awarded a 9.7/10 rating. They also pointed out that too many subplots weighed the film down in the middle but called it "quintessentially Star Wars".
