How many cameos or parts has Warwick Davis played in Star Wars?

Warwick Davis’s first run at Star Wars was as the Ewok known as Wicket in Return of the Jedi.

Apparently, he was subbed in at the last minute for a sick Kenny Baker thus bringing him to the fore as a child actor.

It was a featured role, you could hardly call it a cameo. 

Davis played Wicket twice more in the spin-off films, Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor.

David famously went on to play the main character in Willow (which has been announced as a television show by Lucasfilm for Disney Plus)

Davis’s next turn came in The Phantom Menace where he had 4 minor appearances which are true cameos. 

In that film, he played Wald, the young green Rodian friend that plays with young Anakin. He had a brief turn as Weazel who was a gambler that was watching the podrace that young Anakin won.

Davis also appeared as a street trader on the Tatooine streets and he was used as a double for Yoda in some of Yoda’s walking scenes. 

So that was three appearances in THP alone!

Warwick’s next role in the Star Wars realm came in The Force Awakens  as as 'Woolivan' who could be found lurking having a pint of a bitter English ale at Maz Kanata’s Castle.

In 2016, Davis also turned up in Rogue One as Weeteef Cyubee. The name Weeteef references the character's teeth. He's a solider in Saw Gerrera's squad.

Davis actually had two parts in Star Wars 'The Last Jedi'. 

The first was in the Casino scene as Wodibin, an alien gambler, the second was a deleted scene where he played a character called Kedpin Shoklop.

He's was also lined up for a voice-over part in Season Four of Star Wars Rebels as Rukh, Grand Admiral Thrawn's bodyguard.

Davis reprises his role as Weazel from TPM in Solo. He is a part of Enyfs Nest's gang. He was reunited with director Ron Howard - who first directed him in Willow. (Howard also famously turned down directing TPM)

So that makes 13 canon appearances.

Eagle eyed fans will also note that Warwick’s name begins with W, as do the names of many of his characters…
