Warwick Davis will be in Han Solo, and other Star Wars news


Veteran Star Wars actor Warwick Davis will be in the 2018 untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, and John Williams has scored The Last Jedi…

Since director Ron Howard took the helm of the untitled Han Solo film, he’s been sharing more news from the Pinewood Studios London set than his predecessors Lord and Miller ever did.  Case in point, Howard recently announced via his Twiter account that Star Wars icon Warwick Davis will play a role in Star Wars: Han Solo (unofficial, of course).

Warwick got his start in the Star Wars cinematic universe as Wickett the Ewok in Return of the Jedi. He then returned to Star Wars as Yoda (for walk-in shots) as well as characters Weazel and Wald for The Phantom Menace. In 2015 Davis played Wollivan in The Force Awakens, and in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story  he portrayed one of Saw Gerrera’s rebels — Weeteef Cyubee

In Star Wars Rebels, Davis voiced Ruhk, and he will have a role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a role that has yet to be announced. In other news, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson set the record straight on John Williams’ score for the film.

Johnson continues his great respect for the legendary composer John Williams and confirms that The Last Jedi is being cut and score using Williams’ tracks as a guide, just like Star Wars films before it.
