Warwick Davis Will Be in Star Wars; Episode VII

When it comes to Star Wars: Episode VII, I am trying to stay spoiler-free. I'm okay with casting announcements and plot points that are officially revealed - like the presence of the Millennium Falcon and the design of the X-wing - but when I hear the word "leaked" I try to look the other way. It's not always possible because my job means I have to write about news related to the film, but sometimes I get lucky and can avoid things - like the concept art that made the rounds on the internet yesterday.

Anyway! As mentioned, I don't avoid casting news, and a nice nugget dropped today: Warwick Davis will appear in Episode VII. The official Star Wars YouTube account posted the following video, titled "Will Warwick Davis Appear in Star Wars: Episode VII?"

I look forward to learning what role Warwick Davis is playing in the upcoming movie (he's been Wicket W. Warrick and W. Wald/Weazel in Episodes VI and I so far), but mostly, I find the approach to this announcement interesting. It's more fun than a standard press release.
