Laugh it up Fuzzball!
Yep, it looks like everyone’s favorite furry friend (and I don’t mean Theo) is going to be possibly returning to the Star Wars fold!
According to Empire magazine, the rumors are that Chewbacca is going to be back, but possibly so is the man behind the suit. Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca in the original trilogy is rumored to be returning to the franchise.
Peter Mayhew has cancelled a convention appearance in May “due to filming” and that lands smack dab in the middle of when the new series goes before the lens. They have started some shooting as the rumors go, but this is when everything really heats up.
Star Wars is set to hit theaters 12-18-15 and I’m loving the fact that JJ Abrams is bringing back (semi) familiar faces back to reprise their characters.
