Being a part of the 'Star Wars' universe is in everyone's bucket list. For people in Hollywood, grabbing a role. even a short cameo in one of the movies is already something. We all know Simon Pegg and Daniel Craig are confirmed to have cameos in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', but where can we find them? And who else? 

SPOILERS AHEAD if you haven't seen the movie 

Simon Pegg plays Unkar Plutt, a Jakku tradesman who wants to buy BB-8 from Rey (Daisy Ridley) for 60 packets (whatever their currency was there). The voice was changed completely to not sound like him, but he made a fantastic spin here. 

Daniel Craig, or James Bond was indeed here, but on a very interesting scene. He is the stormtrooper being manipulated by Rey to uncuff on her first successful attempt of using the force. You're weak minded after all, 007.

Bill Hader was credited as "Voice Consultant" for BB-8 alongside Ben Scwartz. According to Director JJ Abrams, the sound of the droid was initially made on an iPad application. 

Warwick Davis returns to the Star Wars universe as a character named Wollivan. Though we don't really know what he actually looks like, chances are he's one of the aliens in Maz Kanata's castle. 

Abram's long-time music collaborator Michael Giacchino played a stormtrooper named FN-3181 who sent Poe Dameron to Kylo Ren.

The Maze Runner star and Jojen Reed from Game of Thrones Thomas Brodie-Sangster is a First Order Officer taking orders from Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux. Talk about Brit serving Brit.

The Raid stars Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman are leaders of a criminal organization whom Han Solo "talks his way out". Their scenes are not what you expect of them, but they served as choreographers in the film's action sequences. Hyaaahh!


Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. I mean c'mon, he was barely in the movie LOL.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' is now showing in cinemas nationwide from Walt Disney Pictures Philippines! #TheForceAwakensPH
