I originally reported that the short interview with Tom Kane had been cut from the official recording of the livestream on the Star Wars YouTube channel. Several people commented that the clip is missing, I checked the recording by scrubbing through it two or three times and didn’t find it. But apparently it’s still there. Maybe I was just blind and didn’t see it. Anyway, you can find the clip around the 6 hour 36 minute mark. Nothing was deleted. Apologies for the confusion! 🙂
Well, I am not sure if Tom Kane is going to have a job after this. During an interview at Star Wars Celebration, he stated that for the last six years he’s voiced Admiral Ackbar. And he immediately explained his disdain for his character’s death in The Last Jedi. He said (paraphrased) “And I was not really thrilled how they blew him up outside of the ship. And I’m like who’s this Holdo woman? And nobody knows this. No one invested in this. Who is she? Why is she saving the fleet?” before the host interrupted him to change topics and looked nervously doing so. The host’s expression is classic. See the clip yourself before it gets edited out at the 3 hours 49-minutes mark of the live feed on YouTube.
