Warwick Davis Joins “Star Wars: Episode VII”

Less than three weeks of filming is left on J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: Episode VII” with several actors having already wrapped their roles. Yet this week has seen the unexpected announcement of one more addition to the cast – Warwick Davis.

Davis has already appeared in two films in the franchise – the original “Return of the Jedi” and “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace”. Lucasfilm made the announcement via a humorous video released today on Youtube in which Davis undergoes an interview with LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy.

Kennedy attended the grand opening of Industrial Light and Magic’s new London facility this week where post-production work on at least six “Stars Wars” movies over the next decade is expected to take place.
