Warwick Davis Solo Cameo - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We’re still a little over a week away from Solo: A Star Wars Story hitting theaters. But since the film played the Cannes Film Festival, there have been some screenings a bit earlier in advance than usual, and that means some interesting details are coming to light. We’re not going to dive into any of the spoilers from the movie just yet, but we do have one intriguing detail that even the most hardcore Star Wars fans wouldn’t realize upon their first viewing of Solo.

Warwick Davis first appeared in the Star Wars saga as Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and since then he’s had little cameo roles in The Phantom Menace, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Rogue One (seen above). We already knew the actor was also appearing in Solo: A Star Wars Story as well, but now we know who he’s playing, and it appears to be one of the characters he portrayed in one of the previous Star Wars films.

There are Star Wars actors and there are Star Wars mainstays, the performers who seem perfectly happy to be linked to the massively successful film series. Warwick Davis made his film debut in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, playing Wicket the Ewok, and he’s been attached at the hip to the saga ever since. In addition to playing roles in the various films, he’s also become one of the franchise’s figureheads, hosting events at Star Wars Celebration and generally appearing whenever an affable face is needed.

So yeah, of course he’s in the Han Solo movie.

Carrie Fisher passed away yesterday at the age of 60. Although best known for her work as Princess Leia Organa in four Star Wars movies, she was so much more: a tremendous writer, an incredible wit, one of Hollywood’s most prolific script doctors, and a brutally honest personality whose openness about mental illness provided hope and inspiration for many.

The fact that we can build an entire article around her colleagues saying nice things about her speaks volumes.
