Warwick Davis showed off a couple of selfies taken on the set of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens’ during an appearance on ‘The One Show’ last night.
The actor - who played ewok Wicket in ‘Return of the Jedi’ - campaigned for a role in JJ Abrams’ ‘Episode VII’ and got his wish.
As excited as his affiliation with the sci-fi series obviously makes Davis, he refused to spill any details on the secretive blockbuster, but did share some snaps with presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones from his time on the Pinewood Studios set. .
The first with Darth Vader (above) might even be quite revealing. Darth Vader’s return (either in flashback or something much more shocking) was once rumoured, but it’s hard to believe Davis would have let such a big spoiler slip so easily.
The second snap (below) is of Davis with Chewbacca’s crotch, which really doesn’t bare thinking about. We already know that Chewie (and actor Peter Mayhew) are returning for the new film.
Davis’ role in ‘The Force Awakens’ is unknown, but it’s unlikely to be as Wicket again (sad as it may be we don’t think ewoks have a very long life-expectancy).
We’ll find out when the film is finally released on 18 December.
