Warwick Davis wants a lightsaber

March 12th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

IGN recently got a chance to speak with Warwick Davis, who famously appeared as Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and also showed up in several scenes in Star Wars: Episode I as another character. They asked him if he would like another shot at the Star Wars universe:

“I’m looking for it, definitely,” adding jokingly, “And if you can help people know that I’m looking for it, it’s also appreciated. It would be great. I’m an actor, basically. I love to work.”

“I love to perform so to be able to go back into something like Star Wars… what a lovely thing that would be to say, that I’ve been in all three trilogies. I’m not dying to get back inside an Ewok suit. I’m happy to play a villain perhaps, [or] a Jedi. A villain with a light saber is the ultimate goal, if that’s not asking too much. I never got a light saber before and I think just to have one of them, to be able to wave one of them around a little bit, would be huge. I’m dropping loads of hints at the moment, so we’ll see what happens.”

I for one would love to see Warwick come back, but I see him as more a Jedi than a Sith. What do you guys think?
