The internets are abuzz with confirmation that everyone's favorite furry giant will be reprising his classic role. No, we're not talking about the dude that gives a blowjob in a bear costume in The Shining! We're talking about Peter Mayhew, who will be reprising his role as Chewbacca in Star Wars Episode 7. The news comes via Bleeding Cool, which appears to take some kind of shot at The Hollywood Reporter, who are also reporting the story, with the phrase "Once more, The Hollywood Reporterone of our previous reports."
Yes. Cuban B.
This contradicts previous speculation that Mayhew would be recast due to a casting call last year looking for a seven foot tall male with a slim build and broad facial features, and we're glad Disney made the right choice here. Stay tuned for more details... on anything. We're really desperate. It's a slow news day.
