With apologies to Blue Harvest (in reality Return of the Jedi, née Revenge of the Jedi), I would argue that the tagline “Horror Beyond Imagination” actually applies to another, far lesser known Warwick Davis production. And I was the one who experienced the horror. Allow me to explain.

Not long ago on Twitter I asked for your favorite Star Wars Celebration Europe memories and photographs for Bantha Tracks, the Star Wars fan newsletter. You sent some beauties, and we thank you for that!
This “photo book,” the final installment of a three-part online series, is a great teaser for what will appear in the December edition of Bantha Tracks in Star Wars Insider.
Star Wars Celebrations are by far my most favorite, and all-consuming, work that I do as head of events for Lucasfilm. During the shows I’m usually running around from point A to point B to get something done, but sometimes I just must stop and take a picture of what’s going on at the show.
Celebration Europe was a joyful event. So many fans and families and people from all over Germany and beyond were smiling and having a wonderful time. I am very lucky to be a part of making the show happen. There were thousands of memories I wish I had captured, but of the photographs I did take, these are some of my favorites.
Celebrity host, actor Warwick Davis, will bring a really big show to the stage in the Grugahalle every day of Star Wars Celebration Europe, and we have created some ways for you to be a part of the action. From tweeting questions to special #Ask hashtags to providing photographs for the Celebration Closing Ceremonies, you can be part of what makes Celebration Europe memorable for all.
Star Wars and Harry Potter actor Warwick Davis is in a new comedy ShortFellas. Here’s the official movie site synopsis:
Five dwarves rip off a bank in the center of Newcastle. They want the cash, of course, but also want to pay for an operation that a young girl, the daughter of their getaway driver, desperately needs. They sit on the money and try to sweat out the police investigation. But when the money goes missing, they decide to pull another job. A local mob boss gets wind of the new plan and persuades (or rather, forces) the dwarves to do a job for him instead: a huge diamond heist worth over £5 million. But the cops have infiltrated the dwarf’s gang and the heist leads to an action packed denouement.
Warwick says of the film:
“I see many scripts during the course of my work, but as soon as I opened the 1st draft of ShortFellas, I knew this was something good, something different. It is both heartfelt and funny, exciting and touching. I am thrilled about the prospect of working on an independent film with such a fantastic cast and crew. My fellow cast members, short actors themselves, have a wealth of acting experience between them, and will bring so much to the film. To me, ShortFellas is a film akin to those hugely successful British comedies of recent years, but has all the potential to reach even greater heights! 2008 looks set to be a ‘big’ year for ShortFellas, and I’m looking forward to the ride.
