50 in 50: The Phantom Menace 3D Character Countdown: Day 48: Ric Olie
Today's Christmas Eve edition of the Star Wars: TPM 50 in 50 features another supporting character from Naboo.
Either the character of Ric Olie must have been a pretty good pilot or the film's budget must have been a little tight; because not only was Ric the pilot of Queen Amidala's Nubian Royal Starship (J-Type 327), but he was also the Leader of Bravo Squadron, the Naboo Starfighter flight that took it too the Trade Federation's Droid control ship.
The most important role in the saga that Olie played was probably in his brief tutorial to Anakin Skywalker on Starship piloting.
