Warwick Davis in Star Wars Episode VIII

Back in early 1980s, Warwick Davis began his acting career as Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. When the revival of the Star Wars saga happened in 1999, the dwarf actor made a cameo at the podracing arena in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Then he returned to a galaxy far, far away again with a role as the alien Wollivan in Maz Kanata’s cantina when the series made a comeback with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now it appears he’s a good luck charm of sorts since he also has a role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (seen above).

Now we have confirmation that fans will see Warwick Davis in Star Wars Episode VIII. Read More »

Walmart Rogue One Commercial

This past Friday brought the first merchandise from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to store shelves. While the excitement doesn’t seem to be as high for Rogue Friday as it was for Force Friday last year, that’s to be expected since The Force Awakens had more excitement surrounding it as the first live-action Star Wars movie in 10 years.

Still, there were plenty of cool items to pick up at stores this weekend, including retailer exclusives that were only just recently revealed. Another one was shown on Rogue Friday with Walmart debuting an exclusive 6-inch Black Series figure for the Scarif Stormtrooper or Shoretrooper as they’ve also been called. To show off the exclusive action figure, they’ve released a quick, action-packed cinematic advertisement showing a squad of these Imperial troops in action. Read More »
