Star Wars Celebration Orlando officially kicked off today with a spectacular 40th Anniversary panel that featured many memorable moments. One of the most touching moments came from none other than beloved Star Wars alum Warwick Davis.
Davis, who served as the moderator at the panel is known for his role as Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. He was only 11-years-old at the time, and since then became an icon within the franchise.
During the panel, Davis read a letter he wrote at that age to Star Wars creator George Lucas. It was written after he finished production on Return of the Jedi. You can read the letter down below.
“Dear Mr. Lucas,
My name is Warwick. I hope you remember me? I helped you make the new Star Wars film last year. I hear that the film is being released in this country on June the 2nd and that a few of the toy shops in London have some of the new figures. I hope this is not too rude of me to ask you, but would it be possible for you to send me the very latest figures and walkers – I was hoping very much that there may be an Ewok or Jabba the Hutt. I did enjoy myself with you and the members of the film unit and keep remembering what a terrific experience it was. Hoping to see you again soon.

8 Ways In Which ‘Star Wars’ Can Reach Its Full Potential
The Star Wars Universe is one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time and the high quality of the recent films are not only proving how strong a franchise it is, but also continuing to gain legions of new fans every year. The series is fantastic and Disney’s films have brought it back in favor with both audiences and fans, but like any good franchise there are always ways in which a series can improve and as a huge fan I don’t think the series is at its full potential yet. There have been some minor issues and things that could be done differently that could make the series even greater than it already is and these can be addressed in future Star Wars films and in other mediums as well. With all of this being said it is appropriate to look at some of these issues and see how they can be addressed in a manner that could give everyone what they will want.
