There are many rumours speculating around the Disney offices at the moment. Peter Mayhew, the man who played Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy and Revenge Of The Sith, will reportedly be back inside the walking carpet for Episode VII.
While no official announcement has arisen, chatter has come about that the possibility of Mayhew coming back to the Star Wars universe. Though Episode VII has reportedly already begun shooting, it was officially announced as starting next month and will be in production for several months. Also the same press release that talked up the shooting dates mentioned some “familiar faces” alongside the new leads.
Hopefully Chewbacca will indeed return for more sarcastic growling, howling, barking and grunting as a counterpoint to Harrison Ford’s Han Solo. The thing on everybody’s minds now is who will have more grey hair?
