Admiral Ackbar Voice Actor Slams ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ & Admiral Holdo

We can officially add Tom Kane to the growing list of people who disliked Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

During an interview on The Star Wars Show Live! over the weekendKane, the voice of Admiral Ackbar in The Last Jedi, shared his thoughts on his character’s death and his dislike for Laura Dern’s character Vice Admiral Holdo.

I was not really thrilled with how they blew him out the side of the ship. I’m like, ‘Who is this Holdo woman? Nobody knows her, no one’s invested in her — who is she? Why is she saving the fleet?’ If anyone was gonna save the fleet it’d be Ackbar”.

We’d like to point out that the famous line, “It’s a trap!”, from the 1983’s Star Wars: Episode VI- Return of the Jedi, was actually voiced by Erik Bauersfeld and that Kane didn’t take over voicing duties until 2017. So, as much as we respect Kane opinion on The Last Jedi, it’s really Bauersfeld’s opinion that matters and since the actor passed away in 2016, we’ll never know.
