The Shill Is Strong With This One
The most recent Star Wars featurette clip has hinted at the return of the Ewoks in Lucasfilm’s upcoming release, The Rise Of Skywalker.
The new clip was posted to the official Star Wars Twitter account, continuing the manic build-up to the release The Rise Of Skywalker, and it looks like we will see more iconic characters from the original trilogy.
Likely to return, along with Emperor Palpatine, are the Ewoks. The new video features a shot of Wicket actor Warwick Davis back in an Ewok costume.
Here it is (You can see the actor looking up at the head of his costume at 2:44) –
Along with the featurette, these new Rise Of Skywalker posters and more pics have dropped. But first, a couple of new TV spots –

And There’s More…
In other recent Star Wars news, Rise Of Skywalker star John Boyega recently admitted that he was the unnamed actor behind the blunder which led the script for the upcoming new film to leak online.
J.J. Abrams said that the script for the upcoming film was posted on E-bay after it was discovered by a cleaner at one of the actor’s houses. A Disney employee spotted the script online and got it back before it sold.
Abrams told Good Morning America –
“One of our actors, I won’t say which one — I want to, but I won’t — left it under their bed and it was found by someone who was cleaning their place”
“And it was given to someone else, who then went to sell it on eBay.”
Boyega told Jimmy Fallon –
“I received a call from my agent, saying, ‘Mate, I’ve just received a call from Disney and all the big Gods of the movie industry that you work for, that your livelihood comes from, saying that you lost the most powerful script in Hollywood right now,”
“A way to feel your organs in your big toe mate, I tell you,”
A terminally ill Star Wars fan has been granted a private screening of the new movie before it arrives in cinemas next month.
Disney CEO Robert Iger learned of the unidentified English fan’s illness and request to see the movie so granted his wish on Thanksgiving by organising a screening at his hospice.

In a statement after the screening, the man said –
“This must be what it feels like to be told you have won a million pounds!”
