When the Star Wars: Episode VII cast was announced, there were many fan favorites among that list including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. Let’s not forget also Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew. But, we’ve got some news today that should make some Star Wars fans happy as well.
Warwick Davis announced today that he will return to the Star Wars world in Star Wars: Episode VII, but will he reprise his role as Wicket the Ewok -- whom we first met in Return of the Jedi?
Wait, you’re saying… there are Ewoks in this one? Not necessarily, as he was Weazel the Wald in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
Davis has not stopped playing the lovable Ewok in the years since Return of the Jedi. He tackled the role in The Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor TV movies.
What role he will play in J.J. Abrams' film is a mystery, but we’re glad to see another familiar face going back to that galaxy far, far away.
