A Sad Goodbye to Chewbacca the Wookie!
Starwarsnewsnet.com and Theforce.net report that Peter Mayhew (the man behind Chewbacca the Wookie) has now passed away at the age of 74.
I wanted to say it’s such a shame that Peter passed away. I really wished to meet him. Let’s honor him with a weekend of Star Wars movies that feature him as Chewbacca.
Here’s a quote from Mark Hamill from Twitter:
He was the gentlest of giants-A big man with an even bigger heart who never failed to make me smile & a loyal friend who I loved dearly-I’m grateful for the memories we shared & I’m a better man for just having known him. Thanks Pete
Here are some photos of Peter:
