    He got extra attention in the TFA promotion because he basically is a legacy character with the original actor(s) returning.
    They even turned Africa upside down to find the original voice actor from Kenya at the last minute!
    And he got his own Battefront level around that time.

    It was on-screen though. mike2
    There was context, a scene, and an explosive decompression. They even gave him a "pour one out" mention afterward. What did you want, a slow motion close-up of him flailing around in zero gravity and a 10 minute funeral with an original John Williams lament piece? He's a dude with a funny face best known for saying "it's a trap" with minimal screen time in two of eight movies.

    The best they could have done would have been to have a single shot of Ackbar turning and looking at Leia before the shot where we see the glass shatter behind her. I dunno. It probably would have stepped on Leia's moment.

    I think what people wanted to have was a clear "oh shit" moment where they actually see everyone become aware that they are about to bite it.

    I remember people saying Lucas should have put a shot of Tarkin realizing his failure at the last moment instead of just blinking out of existence in mid over confidant chin stroke. Kinda of a similar editing choice that seems small but effects the over all mood of a scene.

    The Billy Dee Williams/Lando Calrissian announcement for Episode IX, smells a bit of desperation to me.

    I wish it wasn't so and I didn't feel like this from reading about it, but it is what it is. JJ Abrams is more or less forced to play with the only toys left intact on the playground, after Rian Johnson left it.

    Ah.

    Lando will show up briefly for Leia's funeral in the beginning and he will pop up again in the last acts decisive battle. The dude can hardly walk so I'm sure his appearance will be short and not much more than a cameo with some light help for our new heros.

    Or they can go completely Star Trek and have Lando discover a fountain of youth paradise planet where he drinks from an enchanted spring and becomes Donald Glover again.zlol

    I wonder if JJ Abrams will also add Mark Hamill to the cast. I'm pretty sure that IX was supposed to be Luke's great moment in his original vision of how the entire trilogy would play out.

    However Lucasfilm tries to spin these film, their main attraction weren't Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver, I'm sorry to say. What will they do to make the audience come back for more Star Wars?

    Ackbar is the hero we need, but not the hero we deserve.
