Erik Bauersfeld Voice of Star Wars’ Admiral Ackbar, Dies at 93

Sad news today as we’ve learned that Erik Bauersfeld, who voiced everybody’s favorite Mon Calamari rebel commander, Admiral Ackbar, in both Return of the Jedi and last year’s The Force Awakens, died yesterday at the age of 93.

In addition to Ackbar (most famously known for the phrase “It’s a Trap!), Bauersfeld also voiced Jabba the Hutt’s lead henchman Bib Fortuna in Return of the Jedi.

RIP Erik Bauersfeld (1922-2016)

I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times.I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets.
