Warwick Davis Would Like A Bigger Role In ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

With all the will they/won’t they speculation surrounding Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill returning for the Star Wars sequel, we all forgot to needlessly ask aloud whether or not Warwick Davis would be crammed into a costume again. The answer is yes, assuming they ask. After playing Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and a little kid version of Greedo in Phantom Menace, Davis has expressed his interest in returning to the galaxy far, far away. But he has some terms.

“I love to perform so to be able to go back into something like Star Wars… what a lovely thing that would be to say, that I’ve been in all three trilogies. I’m not dying to get back inside an Ewok suit. I’m happy to play a villain perhaps, [or] a Jedi. A villain with a light saber is the ultimate goal, if that’s not asking too much. I never got a light saber before and I think just to have one of them, to be able to wave one of them around a little bit, would be huge. I’m dropping loads of hints at the moment, so we’ll see what happens.”

If having a miniature Sith Lord doesn’t work out with the next film’s storyline perhaps he can arm himself with a lightsaber in a sequel to Leprechaun In Space or something. The fans would allow it. (IGN)
