Warwick Davis has been a Star Wars staple ever since he appeared as Wicket in Return of the Jedi. He reprised his role for the two Ewok movies and he’s appear in The Phantom Menace, The Force Awakens and Rogue One. Thanks to a Tweet from Han Solo director Ron Howard he’s been confirmed for that film as well.
Howard’s tweet read “I directed Warwick Davis for the first time in 30 years today”. Warwick worked with Howard on Willow which came out back in 1987 under the Lucasfilm umbrella.
Warwick is also set to appear in The Last Jedi and it was recently announced that he had a voice over role in Rebels so he’s got a lot of Star Wars stuff on his plate at the moment.
