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┬áStar 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:
