Star Wars Episode VII: First Picture of Chewbacca!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

We've got the first photo of actor Peter Mayhew back in the Chewbacca suit that made the character both a sci-fi and pop culture icon!

During a costume test as J.J. Abrams gets ready to start production on his film after the announcement of the Star Wars: Episode VII cast, Disney CEO Bob Iger took an Instagram photo for the Star Wars page and this furry fellow popped his head in. 

It was Mayhew who was even in the news recently for the franchise that made him famous for reasons other than the new film. Mayhew provided us with those hilarious Star Wars behind-the-scenes photos that have never been released! 

We are too pleased that's he back, of course, as well as Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
