Something that has been long speculated since the first teaser showing the Death Star II ruins has seemingly been confirmed....Ewoks are back. And Warick Davis is back as Wicket in particular.



This brief shot in a new (and wonderful!) featurette video gave it away. See video below:

It's in an officially released video from Lucasfilm as part of promotion for the film. It isn't a spoiler.
It is. Up until this thread I had zero clue of Ewoks being in the movie and I wasn’t planning on watching that video until after I watch the movie first. I watch all the trailers/ tv spots, no Ewoks in those.

I love that this thread has already been derailed by a philosophical debate on what constitutes a spoiler

Warwick is cool, glad to see him return to the role

An officially released video promoting the film that they put on all their official social media accounts is mainstream marketing.
So comment on it on their social media accounts or in the multiple ROTS threads like the spoiler thread. This is a dumb thread that was made only to spoil a small but cool part of the movie.

OP could have been less of an asshole and titled the thread “Making of Featurette discloses X returning”.

Oh....I guess Ewoks are back. So much for avoiding info on the movie since the first trailer.

I don’t *watch* the official videos till after I’ve seen the movie. Now why might that be?

Wicket sure didn’t need to be name-checked in the gd thread title.

Well, this would've been a nice surprise, but no.

Spoilers in the thread title should be bannable.

I guess this was the last corpse they had left to reanimate before killing it off.

I give it 40 minutes before it's dead.

These sequels are literally 'member this?

I’m actually glad to know about this. I don’t think my skull could withstand the eye roll I would’ve done discovering stupid ass Ewoks are back during the movie.

Lol. Spoiler cultural has gone too far. Get off the internet folks. Don't expect the world to tip toe around your definition of what is or isn't a spoiler. Sheesh.
