Lucas, George Easter Egg - The Antilles Clones
It's a well known fact that George Lucas mentions THX-1138 again and again in his films. However, did you notice that in both Star Wars trilogies (old and new) the surname Antilles is sometimes repeated for different characters? The first instance occurs in The Phantom Menace (1999). We are told by one of the Queen's soldiers that Bail Antilles is the other nominee to become Chancellor. In A New Hope (1977) C-3PO tells Luke that his last master was captain Antilles. Another reference to this name is that of one of the Rebel fighter pilots, Wedge Antilles, who appears in every film in the original trilogy. (George Lucas is not the only director to re-use names. The names "Reese and Foley" appear in many Robert Zemeckis films, including Back to The Future II). So why does George Lucas do this? Is the name Antilles also used in Episodes II and III? If so, I haven't found it!
