    There may be another Star Wars/LOTR/Hobbit vet in Episode VII. Someone at the wrap party posted a couple pictures with Kiran Shah.

    The wrap party is just for people involved with the movie, not any random celeb in the area. So it's possible he's involved in the creature shop side of things.

    Watch the LOTR documentaries. Kiran went through hell - uncomplainingly - for LOTR. If he's in the film, they're lucky to have him.

    That would be great if he's blue beard. Nice to see him back. :)

    The pirates look like all kinds of fun.

    I hope the third spinoff is a Star Wars version of Clerks starring Teedo and Bob.

    teedo- kiran

    EW released this image already of Rey cutting BB-8 free from the net of a fellow
    scavenger in the dunes of Jakku, and here’s what Abrams was able to share about
    that shot: BB-8 was snagged by a surly little sand-dweller known as Teedo, who
    is riding atop what looks like a rhinoceros fused with metal boxes.

    That beast of burden is known as a luggabeast, a never-before-seen creature from
    the universe.

    Teedo also lacks a last name, but I’m guessing that doesn’t mean he’s Han Solo’s
    long-lost son. And it is a he — at least if you go by the actor inside the suit,
    Kiran Shah.

    You’ve probably seen the 58-year-old Kenyan-Indian actor before, even if you
    didn’t realize it. At 4-foot-1, he holds the Guinness World Record for the
    shortest working stuntman, and has played an Ewok in Return of the Jedi, doubled
    for Christopher Reeve in the 1978 Superman film (when they needed to create
    forced perspective shots) and also helped make Frodo seem small beside Ian
    McKellen’s Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings movies.

    Teedo sounds a little like Greedo, but if the little fellow is lucky (and hands
    over the ball-droid) maybe he won’t share a similar fate.

    Ive been wondering this, if Kiran Shah is the guy on the beast could Warwick Davis be Bluebeard?

    Bluebeard is too tall.

    The flesh colored, big eyed, long nosed thing in the front is likely Davis.


    But Davis has indicated he's playing more than one character. So I see no reason why Shah couldn't. In fact, it looked like they made a body mold of Shah and was shown in a production photo a few months back. He's probably a corpse on Dr Kalonia's operating table or something.

    Yeah, but they certainly don't look like they would be capable of taking out the Jedi Temple lol. Are "The Seven" supposed to be these pirates?
