    I guess we'd have to determine who was the youngest cast or crew member in the OT. In Return of the Jedi, there is a small child being comforted by an Ewok. My guess is he was born in 1978-1981. I'm not sure if any Ewoks were very young. If we count that kid, my guess is 2050 will be the last year Disney can parade a member of the original cast/crew. Of course Lucas could outlive them all. :)

    I don't recall that scene. Are you sure you're not thinking of the Ewok Adventures movies, in which a small child (a girl called Cindel Towani) appears?

    I think the youngest person involved with the OT films was Warwick Davis who played Wicket in ROTJ. Wookieepedia says he was born in 1970 so he couldn't have been more then 11 or 12 when they filmed ROTJ.

    Are we talking about the baby Ewoks (woklings)? I don't think there's an infant actor in there, I think it's a puppet.

    What a morbid topic!

    I was about Cindel's age when those Ewok movies came out. I had such a li'l boy crush on her!

    Now, all that is left is to stare into her cold, dead eyes as she surrenders all hope that she will ever be free of that terrifying embrace...

    "I'll come back and visit you as soon as I can...." Never did. Love 'em & leave 'em, Cin.

    But to be fair, this is the expression of one whose family was just slaughtered, was picked up and carried away by some weird giant bird/dragon thing, and finally have a moment to sit at a campfire snuggling up to a living teddy bear when here comes Wilford Brimley with a bucket of water to chew you out and kill your fire.
    Liberty Mutual FTW.

    Back to topic, why don't they parade out ol' Cindel for these events? They've done stuff with Eric "Mace" Walker, but what happened to Aubree Miller? They're not OT, but definitely from that era.

    Yub Yub!!! Pretty sad day for the Celebration. 2050 will have Davis at 80 years of age. I am not knocking it but the life span of little people is not in his favor.
