Wedge, of course, is the plucky Rebel who helped Luke and the gang take down the first Death Star in “A New Hope” (or at least he tried, until he had to bail early due to ship damage). The luckiest X-Wing pilot in the “Star Wars” universe also managed to survive the Battle of Hoth in “The Empire Strikes Back,” before ultimately playing a pivotal part in destroying the second Death Star in “Return of the Jedi.” Denis Lawson would reprise his role as Wedge for the 2001 video game “Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II – Rogue Leader” prior to making his live-action comeback with a brief cameo during the climactic battle on Exegol in “The Rise of Skywalker.”

“I Am Your Mother” sees a Twi’lek mother and daughter competing in what the short’s creatives described as the “Star Wars” version of the “slightly absurd” British school tradition known as Sports Day, with Wedge hosting the event. Magdalena Osinska explained that she wanted the characters in the short to be non-humans because that’s how she felt when she moved to the UK from Poland, and how her mother feels whenever she visits her. It’s the latest example of Aardman poking gentle, loving fun at Britain’s sporting traditions after the studio’s 2018 stop-motion feature film, “Early Man.”

“I Am Your Mother” was screened after the “Visions” Celebration panel for those in attendance, with the trailer for “Volume 2” now online. You can catch the full short when the entirety of “Volume 2” hits Disney+ on May 4, 2023.
