More great news was released from Orlando today as Star Was Celebration VI announced that Warwick Davis will be attending the event next month. Known to fans as Wicket the Ewok, Warwick is one of the most beloved actors in “Star Wars”. After Kenny Baker fell ill during filming, Davis stepped in and replaced him as Wicket. Kenny Baker will also be attending the convention in Orlando.
While Davis is known for his role in “Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi”, he has also had a great career that has spanned multiple genres and decades. As the title character in “Willow”, Davis cemented himself as an amazing actor and drew fans to the theatre. He was also the antagonist in “Leprechaun” and has recently portrayed Professor Filius Flitwick in the “Harry Potter” films. Warwick Davis also returned to the “Star Wars” franchise when the prequels began filming. In “Star Was Episode I: The Phantom Menace”, he played Weazel, Wald and even Yoda during walking scenes.
Warwick Davis will be attending the event all four days, and will be signing autographs. To purchase autograph tickets in advance, please visit the Official Pix website.
