It might sound a little bit strange, but Star Wars actor Warwick Davis from Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker doesn't really think that Yoda is cuter than the franchise's Ewoks.

Sure, the 50-year-old green child might have sparked so much love from the Star Wars fanbase ever since he first blinked with his doe eyes in Star Wars: The Mandalorian but that doesn't really seem to affect Davis.

Speaking in an interview with BAND Showbiz (via, Davis explains why Ewoks are so much better than Baby Yoda. According to the actor who played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, Ewoks are so much better to cuddle than Baby Yoda.


"I've been trying to avoid spoilers on The Mandalorian, but I keep seeing these pictures of Baby Yoda, I don't want to know anymore really for the time being," Davis explained in his discussion with the entertainment news outlet, "But Ewoks are obviously very cool, I have a certain affinity with those of course! Ewoks are cooler, they're more cuddly. Baby Yoda is cute but he's not cuddly, you would rather cuddle an Ewok than Baby Yoda."

Star Wars fans may have different thoughts about Ewoks. What was meant as a merchandising push from George Lucas didn't end up doing so well among fans, and it seems like fans aren't too keen on Ewoks now either.
