Davis has confirmed that he has a part in Star Wars: Episode VIII, but declined to say much else about his role in the movie. When asked about whether or not he had a spot in the film, he said, “I do, yes. That’s all I can say,” to an Australian TV network.
In the same interview, Davis offered some high praise for The Force Awakens, which hit theaters last year.
“There were some wonderful moments, some moving moments and it was full of all the action that we expect, so for me it ticked all the boxes, I loved it. And I think [The Force Awakens] sets up the trilogy very well. Obviously we’re moving into the territory of Episode VIII very soon as well, and much like Empire Strikes Back I’m sure it’s going to deliver some quite impactful story moments, and it’ll leave us with some cliffhangers as well which resolve in Episode IX.”
Davis, who played head Ewok Wicket in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, in addition to appearing in Episode VIII, has a part in Star Wars: Rogue One. The standalone Star Wars film hits theaters in December.
Star Wars: Episode VIII is slated to premiere Dec. 15, 2017.
