Warwick Davis says he will have a role in Star Wars: Episode VII

10.16.2014

Warwick Davis has been a fixture in multiple franchises ranging from LEPRECHAUN to HARRY POTTER, but it was his role as Wicket the Ewok in RETURN OF THE JEDI that forever made him a part of the STAR WARS universe. Having appeared in both of the Ewoks TV movies as well as in STAR WARS: EPISODE I, Davis has not been a part of a STAR WARS movie for fifteen years. But, it looks like that is about to change.

When STAR WARS: EPISODE VII was announced, Davis was like many former actors from the saga who lobbied in the media for a role in the new film. Half-jokingly, Davis made a plea to Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy last year and found out during filming that J.J. Abrams had a role for him in the upcoming sequel.

It is unknown what role Davis will play in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII or if it will amount to much more than a cameo. With three weeks left in production, we don't know if Davis has already filmed his part or not. Could he be playing Wicket the Ewok again? You never know with the amount of nostalgia in J.J. Abrams new film, but it is nice having yet another connection to the original trilogy.

See Warwick Davis' announcement below. STAR WARS: EPISODE VII opens on December 18, 2015.

Size matters not

Jedis come in all types/sizes. I'd like to see him in the New Jedi Council.

Biopic casting

Warwick Davis looks a lot like Dio. He's about the same height too.

Mind Blowing

I make up to USD90 an hour working from my home. My story is that I quit working at Walmart to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around USD40h to USD86h… Someone was good to me by sharing this link with me, so now i am hoping i could help someone else out there by sharing this link…

"Davis has not been a part of a STAR WARS movie for over twenty years." Phantom Menace was 15 years ago.

And yeah I would love a return to the world of Willow.

Yeah they fixed it. That's why I quoted the original sentence because sometimes they fix it and people's comments that point it out end up making no sense :)

have him cameo where we can see his face. As some alien other than an ewok. Something that fans can spot him and not have to wonder whose in the costume.

But a cameo from the original cast is always good. Lets see if we can also get Billy Dee Williams, and Admiral Ackbar in there too
