Watch: Warwick Davis Confirmed for a Role in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'
There's still some spoilers floating about online for Star Wars: Episode VII, and we're doing our best to steer clear from them, hoping to preserve some sense of mystery and surprise when the film arrived next winter. But that doesn't mean there isn't stuff to reveal, and the latest post from StarWars.com does just that by announcing that a certain veteran of the sci-fi saga will be returning as well. Warwick Davis has been a part of Star Wars since he played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi, and he even had a small cameo role in The Phantom Menace. And now he'll pop up in Star Wars: Episode VII next year too. Watch!
Here's the amusing announcement video that StarWars.com posted on YouTube today:
With production nearing an end, and the December 18th, 2015 release date confirmed by Disney, Star Wars mania isn't slowing down at all. We've got just over a year to wait and there's no question at all that plenty more adventures are on the way. We'll be right here to keep you updated through 2015 and beyond.

Davis is a hero. Great news. Hopefully we'll see his face.

Sounds good to me. I'm all for going 'ultimate nostalgia' with the cast. I'd love Frank Oz to voice cameo as Yoda and for Billy Dee Williams to get a cameo of some sort.
