Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Easter Egg - Wicket the Ewok in Pod Racing Crowd

In the Pod Racing scenes the guy that played Wicket the Ewok in Return Of The Jedi can be seen in the crowd. He has been in quite a few films and I'm pretty sure his name is Warwick Davies.

to be a little more specific, he's sitting in jabba's box, in the front. he's the little humanoid with wiley red hair. or, you might pick him out more easily if you were told "look for the guy who played Willow in the movie 'Willow'."

The other character played by Warwick Davies in Episode I is Anakin's friend - a rodian named Wald!!!

By the way, Wicket the Ewok's full name was Wicket W. Warwick. Character's last name the same as the actor's first.

That's great about Mr. Davis. He's my 2nd favorite actor . I tell my brother I'll watch Star Wars Episode:1 , just to see the parts he plays . Otherwise . . . Well , shall I say it takes some getting used to Episode:1 after watching the original trilogy . Keep this up ! The more info the better .

Craze, you got something wrong. Warwick did not play Yoda in Episode I (not even for a short scene, when Yoda paces the room). In the scene, where Yoda walks, a digital Yoda was used to make walking possible. It's a computer effect, not an actor in a Yoda-suite (like it was utilized in TESB). This is, by the way, the ONLY digital Yoda in the film. In the rest of the movie you see the puppet, played by Frank Oz. (Although I think the puppet from TESB looks much better...)

For all of you confused about Greedo and Wald, let it be known that Greedo is Wald's brother. They are from a race known as Rodians. I read it in Star Wars Insider. For those of you who don't believe me buy the DVD. This is one of the deleted scenes they added to it.

Actually, Quantie, Wicket's full name is Wicket W. Warrick, not Warwick. http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/wicketwwarrick/index.html There's the official Star Wars Database entry...

Maybe I can clear a few things up. First of all, I made a mistake. Warwick Davies indeed played Anakin's friend Wald (a Rodian). Second, the reason I made the mistake is because in the original screen play, which you can buy at any bookstore, George Lucas had a scene (which he later cut - see the STAR WARS Insider for more info) where Anakin gets into a fight with Greedo. Greedo, also a Rodian, is killed by Han Solo in Episode IV. Anyway, when I first read the sceenplay I assumed that Greedo and Wald were the same person, because as we all know there is only one Rodian boy in the movie. However, my assumption was wrong . . . Lucas cut Greedo's fight scene . . . so maybe we'll see him in Episode II. I hope that clears things up, and please, no more e-mails about my mother!

John032586 was right when he said that Greedo was Wald's brother. I read it, too.

Warwick Davis also plays the friend of Anakin's who looks like a young Greedo. Don't know the race of alien, but he is the green skinned alien while Anakin is getting the pod ready for the race.

Greedo was a rodian in the ANH. He was working for Jabba and tried to kill Han Solo.

Darkshadow, Now if you're so picky on spelling and Star Wars animal 56 WAS correct... it is spelled Greedo not Creedo. But yes it is also Wald in the movie but Greedo is in a deleted scene (which should have stayed in because it was great). Second (I know this has nothing to do with Star Wars) it is spelled which, a witch is that ugly Halloween thing. And last 'not think' has that space between it doesn't it? I'm plenty pickier than you. oh and I'm quite enjoying this geeky time wasting stuff.

Like animal 56 said, it's not Creedo (or Greedo, lilke You call him). it's Wald. You should not only watch the movies.. read the books, too. There are mutch more informations. Robert: On witch source can you proof your claim, that this alien is Creedo? You should notthink only because it's the same race like a Person/alien in another movie, it's the same beeing! Funny on how few inforation some people like to explain things.. :o)
