The latest Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker featurette teases a return of the Ewok, Wicket W. Warrick.
As hinted in the new behind-the-scenes clip from the film, it appears that a character not seen since Star Wars: Return of the Jedi will make an epic return. Get ready to experience Ewok fever all over again, because it looks like Wicket is returning.
As revealed in the new clip, Warwick Davis is shown in his full costume as Wicket the Ewok.; But the last time he wore that costume, he was around the age of 12 years old. But in this clip, he’s obviously much older, so it looks like this footage was filmed recently — and possibly confirms the return of the Ewoks in the latest film.
Fans will be no doubt be speculating the circumstances of the character’s return. His first appearance took place on the forest moon of Endor, and some theorized the Death Star wreckage seen in the trailers might be on Endor. However, it’s since been confirmed the wreckage is on the ocean moon Kef Bir, so like much in The Rise of Skywalker marketing, there are no easy answers. Perhaps Kef Bir is another one of Endor’s moons, and Ewoks live there as well.
Fans will get to see how it all wraps up when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres in theaters on December 20th.
