Peter Mayhew Returning as Chewbacca in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'!

Peter Mayhew will be reprising his role as the beloved character Chewbacca in the highly anticipated film Star Wars: Episode VII, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fans have been speculating that the 69-year-old actor would be in the movie as he canceled an appearance at the Comicpalooza convention in Texas “due to filming.” The convention takes place from May 23 to 26, which would coincide with filming of the new flick.

Peter has mainly built his career on playing the lovable Wookiee, though he has also appeared in the horror film Terror and has done some voice work as well.

It has been rumored that Adam Driver will be playing a villain in Star Wars: Episode VII and that original stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher are going to reprise their roles, though nothing has been confirmed yet.
