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!

Stay tuned as we feel that more casting news is coming very, very soon!
