Re-Introducing Captain Colton

Bounty hunter turned rebel scum, Jeremy Bulloch is the pilot of Tantive IV in Revenge of the Sith, returning unmasked for his third carefully portrayed character, following "He's no good to me dead" Boba Fett and "Luke, it's a trap!" Lieutenant Sheckil.



Captain Colton Antilles was the commander of the Tantive IV when it was captured by the Empire shortly after the Rebel Alliance intercepted plans for the original Death Star. He was also former master of the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 before they became the property of Luke Skywalker. Antilles died at the hands of Darth Vader after he failed to give information on the location of the Death Star plans. According to the X-Wing series of novels, he was not related to Wedge Antilles.

He appeared in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and its radio adaptation, though it was only in the radio version that he was mentioned by name. His name in the novelization of A New Hope was simply Captain Colton. He will appear in the upcoming Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
