The 2017 Star Wars Celebration kicked off on Thursday with a “40 Years of Star Wars” panel, and one of the highlights was a touching trip down memory lane with Warwick Davis (who played the main Ewok in Return of the Jedi) and surprise guest George Lucas. While discussing how Davis had grown up loving the first two movies as a little kid before getting cast in Jedi at age 11, Davis shared a letter he wrote to Lucas after they finished making the movie.
From the letter, it’s clear that Davis was a polite kid, but a kid nonetheless. Naturally, he asked for Star Wars toys.
Here’s what he wrote:
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 2 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 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 remember what a terrific experience it was.
Hoping to meet you again soon.
Davis also shared a picture of him with his toy collection, bragging that he still had all of them. Though, he admitted, some of the vinyl capes had gotten lost over the years.
