Admiral Ackbar To Appear In ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Tim Rose who is most famous for his work as Admiral Ackbar told The Australian that the Admiral will appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“It takes a unique sort of masochist to ever want to do it in the first place. But the joy of doing it is the joy of animatronics, and that’s taking the foam latex, an inanimate object, and making people think it’s alive,” said Rose.

“I’d like to think I gave Ackbar something special which you can tell. I think you can. I can tell when I see my friends who do specialised and full body suit work no matter what character they go into; I can tell you exactly who it is because I know their movements so well,” said Rose.

“What I can say about the new movie is that if you were a fan of the original three, you’re going to absolutely love this one to bits,” said Rose.

Rose has also worked on The Dark Crystal, Howard the Duck, Return to OZ, and The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.
