Peter Mayhew Is Back As Chewbacca

Peter Mayhew is reportedly set to reprise his role of Chewbacca in Disney and Lucasfilm’s upcoming sequel “Star Wars: Episode VII”.

Mayhew played the legendary Wookiee in the original trilogy, and a report surfaced a few weeks ago that a recent canceled convention appearance in late May “due to filming” was because of ‘Episode VII’.

Now, sources for The Hollywood Reporter have seemingly confirmed the news. Disney and Lucasfilm however have no comment.
