Admiral Ackbar - Star Wars

Ackbar from Star Wars played by Timothy Rose.

Ackbar is a fictional male Mon Calamarian in the Star Wars film series who was played on screen by Timothy Rose. Ackbar holds the rank of Admiral within the Rebel Alliance.

Admiral Ackbar, is the leader of The Rebel Alliance as they attack the second Death star in Star Wars VI - Return of the Jedi. Ackbar is a fish like humanoid who watches the fight from the safety of his battleships bridge. The 'Family Guy' cartoon series remake of Return of the Jedi 'Its a trap' comes from this character which he says when he realises what the Empire is up to.

In the extended Clone Wars series, his first name is revealed to be Gial.

Admiral Ackbar returns to the Rebellion in Star Wars - The Force Awakens but unlike his previous adventures, he stays in the War room planning the attack along with General Leia and leaves the attacking to the X-wing fighters. The character is again played by Timothy Rose, who played the Admiral the first time.

The Mon Calamarian who appeared in Star Wars - Rogue One was Admiral Raddus. Raddus helped provide the support to the Rogue One team to get the Death Star plans off the planet and onto the Tantive IV space ship.

Admiral Ackbar's Death

Admiral Ackbar is killed when The First Order launch an attack on the Resistance in retaliation for the destruction of Starkiller Base. In reality, Erik Bauersfield, the man who voiced Admiral Ackbar died shortly after the release of Star Wars VII- The Force Awakens. As it would not be the same to have someone else voice Ackbar, the producers felt that it was best to kill off the character during the First Order attack.
