Along with the news of a potential new Willow film, we learn that Warwick Davis is reprising his role from The Phantom Menace in Solo: A Star Wars Story. While most of us knew he would appear in the film, we now have official word that the actor will be playing the character Weazel. Many of you may remember the character from The Phantom Menace, he can be seen sitting next to Watto during the podrace scene. Weazel is said to be an arms dealer, which should make him fit in nicely with the rest of the scum and villainy that is likely to be featured in the film.

Davis began his Star Wars career playing the Ewok Wicket in Return of the Jedi. Since then, the actor has appeared in every Star Wars film since Disney purchased the franchise and began making new installments, as well as voicing a character on the animated Star Wars Rebels. 

As for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the film opens in about 10 days and has had mostly positive feedback so far, and at first glance, the film appears as if it will be a success.
