    Peter Mayhew is set to reprise his role as wookie Chewbacca in the forthcoming Star Wars film, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    Mayhew starred in the original Star Wars trilogy that began in 1977, as Han Solo’s furry sidekick, Chewbacca and also featured briefly in the 2005 prequel Revenge of the Sith.

    While Disney is yet to officially confirm details of the cast, it is expected that the stars of the original trilogy, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are set to reprise their iconic roles as Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.

    Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn that filming has already begun on the much-anticipated Episode VII, which is set to pick up the story 35 years on from Return of the Jedi, using a plot originally outlined by Star Wars creator George Lucas.

    We saw him once, years ago walking around EPCOT. He is TALL!!!!! Very lanky and truly does have that characteristic lope that was translated into Chewbacca's walk. He's a quiet man, and very nice. He was, of course here for that year's SWWs. :yes:

    I might even be co-oerced into watching this film. If I'm paid enough, of course. :D :D
