An 'iCarly' Star Is Joining The 'Star Wars' Universe

It's like 'Galaxy Wars', Part II

Everyone's favorite Galaxy Wars fanatic Freddie Benson is gearing up to join the Star Wars franchise. Over the weekend, iCarly actor Nathan Kress shared exciting news about his newest project: Star Wars Rebels. Kress is officially joining the team for Season 3 of the Disney XD TV show and could not be more ecstatic.

He'll be playing Rebel X-Wing pilot Wedge Antilles, whose origin story will be revealed and won't paint the character in the best light. Based on the trailer that recently dropped, Wedge was briefly involved with the Empire, flying Tie Fighters.

As if being part of the Star Wars universe weren't enough, Kress admitted he loved masquerading as Wedge when he was young, so everything is coming full circle.

Moral of the story? Never give up on your dreams, kids.

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 premieres this fall.
