The actor who brought Wicket the Ewok to life is headed to the windy city as master of ceremonies.
We have awesome news.
The unconquerable Warwick Davis has announced he will once again join fans to host the upcoming spectacular Star Wars Celebration Chicago!
Davis, a Star Wars and Celebration icon, will make his triumphant return to the main Celebration Stage in Chicago, where he will welcome some of the biggest stars of the show for intimate conversations, thrilling announcements, and other revelations. Warwick previously hosted the Celebration Stage in Orlando in 2017 and has been a staple at Star Wars Celebration since its inception in 1999.
Known to many Star Wars fans as Wicket, the tiny Ewok who became one of the saga’s lead creature characters, Warwick’s acting career came about purely by chance when his grandmother heard a radio announcement casting call for Return of the Jedi. He’s returned to the galaxy far, far away several times, with appearances in various roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
This is fantastic news. Star Wars Celebration just wouldn’t be the same without Warwick Davis at the helm.
Star Wars Celebration Chicago will take place 11th-15th April at McCormick Place. Visit StarWarsCelebration.com for tickets and further info. We look forward to seeing you there.
