As reported moments ago, Star Wars Episode VII is currently shooting. Casting supposedly has been pretty much set, but there is little news as to who the main players will be.
But, The Hollywood Reporter has let us know that one big piece of the puzzle has been cast -- and it is huge... literally!
Peter Mayhew will return as Chewbacca!
The actor famously filled out the Wookie suit in the first Star Wars trilogy that ran from the 1970s through the early 1980s. No word on whether the Wookie will be sporting any grey hairs, given that this Star Wars story takes place 30 years after Return of the Jedi.
Stay tuned as we feel that more casting news is coming very, very soon!
