RIP indeed you wonderful walking carpet.
I assume He is in Rise Of Skywalker
Unlikely. He only consulted on The Last Jedi. Joonas Suotamo played Chewbacca in that movie and Solo (and was a double in Force Awakens).
Sad news indeed! RIP Mr. Mayhew! Your portrayal of Chewbacca helped make the Star Wars universe what it is today, and you did it without ever showing your face. Thanks so much for giving of yourself in the way that you did!
That last line...
great thing about it he'll live on. it's like Mr. Hooper dies on Sesame Street, he was gone forever and it had to be explained to the kids. Jim Henson dies, but he lives on forever and ever through the characters. Chewy lives on. but Mayhew sure was good in the costume.
btw, my dog honeybun reminds me of chewy sometimes when she howls with music on the tv. I really need to get that recorded proper and on youtube. same howl.
This was a bummer to hear this morning. He was at Star Wars Celebration just 15 days earlier though he had to cancel one of his signing/photo days due to feeling under the weather.
"Chewbacca here is first mate on ship that might suit us."
RIP Peter Mayhew.
He seemed like such a sweet man. I'm sorry I never got to meet him.
