Various Star Wars movies, games and TV shows have been canned over the years. The Force was not strong with these...
The Star Wars universe is a dangerous place. For example, ‘man walks into a bar’ gags in Mos Eisley tend to end with unwarranted threats, droid racism, limbs being chopped off, impromptu deaths or – worst of all – rigorous re-editing.
Until the recent Disney buy-out, the world created by George Lucas was just as treacherous for seemingly-exciting projects. Lucasfilm/LucasArts, for a time, became notorious for the number of cancellations under its belt, with films, TV shows and game ideas constantly being chucked out at various stages of their development.
But when did the term ‘countless’ ever stop us trying to count things? Never, that’s when. So we donned a pointy-hooded robe and scoured the desert wilderness of the internet to bring you what we hope is a complete »
Everyone's favorite Ewok will be coming back for Star Wars: Episode VII! Well, kind of. A new YouTube video on the official Star Wars channel features actor Warwick Davis confirming that he'll be in the new movie, though that doesn't guarantee he'll be playing Wicket the Ewok. He could just as easily be playing someone else (as he did in The Phantom Menace), so don't break out your VHS copy of the 1984 TV movie The Ewok Adventure just yet. But if you're a fan...

We know by now that there will be many characters from the earlier Star Wars films reappearing in the highly anticipated Episode 7. Someone else may be accompanying Luke, Han and the other returning originals. Are the Ewoks coming back for another round?
Warwick Davis is a veteran of the Star Wars universe. He played the Ewok known as Wicket in Star Wars-Episode 6: Return of the Jedi(1983),as well as in the Ewok TV films, The Ewok Adventure (1984) and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (1985). He also had several roles in Star Wars-Episode 1: The Phantom Menace (1999). Now that an amusing video featuring Davis has been released, breaking the news that Davis is »

If you weren’t already over the moon about the casting line-up for Star Wars: Episode VII, then you might be excited to hear that Warwick Davis is set to return to a galaxy far, far away. The franchise stalwart has officially signed on to J.J. Abrams’ anticipated first instalment of the new trilogy.
Davis will be recognisable to the Star Wars fan community as he appeared in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, The Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle For Endor as much-loved ewok, Wicket. That’s not to say he’ll be reprising that role for the new movie. Lest we forget, he also cropped up in the prequel trilogy. In Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he took on two brief roles; one as Anakin’s childhood friend Wald, and the other as arms dealer Weazel.

With Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and that guy who plays Chewbacca all returning for "Star Wars: Episode 7," yet another franchise veteran has joined the film's cast. Warwick Davis, perhaps best known for playing Wicket in "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi," "The Ewok Adventure" and "Ewoks: The Battle For Endor" has announced he's joined the gang for 'Episode 7.' Of course, his role isn't being disclosed and one shouldn't immediately assume he's reprising his turn as Wicket. He did make a brief appearance in "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" as Wald, the childhood friend of Anakin Skywalker who helped build his podracer. So hey, maybe we'll see that character back in the movie for some reason. But given the way the nostalgia winds are blowing so far, we would not be entirely shocked if Wicket for whatever reason reappears. Why? Well, »

Well, friends, as you can tell from the title, this episode’s a mouthful. We hit the 350-Like threshold on Facebook a few weeks ago, and you know what that means: time for another b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bonus episode! This time, per Gabe’s suggestion, your intrepid co-hosts tackle not one, not two, but three movies, all from the now-Disney-owned Lucasfilm: Willow, Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, and Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure. Yes, really, these are movies that we sat down and watched willingly. (Ok, some less willingly than others.) And, as you might expect from a bonus show, this one’s full of goofy tangents as well as a few impersonations. Listen carefully, and you’ll hear Josh impersonate Wilford Brimley, and Gabe may even impersonate…Taylor Lautner? Yup. Now go forth on your own caravan of courage and check out the new show!
