Some might know him as Red Two, Rogue Three, or maybe just Wedge Antilles, but we know that Denis Lawson is finally headed to Summer Con this year from June 23rd through the 25th. His schedule is now free, and the travel restrictions have been lifted for Denis to fly from the UK via plane, snowspeeder, or X-Wing in June to Puyallup.
