STAR WARS: Episode VII Sees Return of Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca

Earlier today Fangirlish reported that Star Wars: Episode VII has indeed started filming. However, while so little of the actual cast has been solidified other than Adam Driver — it’s remarkable they are giving us this news, that Peter Mayhew is expected to reprise his role of Chewbacca from the earlier three Star Wars films even though they’re numbered IV, V, VI.

J.J. Abrams might like his secrets, but with this cat out of the bag, most fans, myself included, expect that announcements of Harrison Ford, Luke Hamill and Carrie Fisher starring should be forthcoming. I mean really… who wants Chewbacca to be without Hans Solo?!

Star Wars: Episode VII will land in theaters December 18, 2015.

‘Star Wars’ Has Already Started Filming

BYzdEabStar Wars has already started filming? The cast has already been named? What?

Well the cast may not be public, but this weekend Disney chairman Alan Horn was doing a question and answer at Loyola Maymount and may have let the cat out of the bag. He let it slip that “Star Wars Episode VII” has already begun shooting and has much of its cast.

Well, umm… when do we get to know the names of that cast! This needs to happen.

When asked about casting, “We have a lot of them, it’s not completely done yet,” Horn responded.

Anyone else making guesses?

“We’re actually shooting some of it now,” Horn said.

What they are shooting, no one knows. It had been said that filming would begin next month. They could be shooting B-Roll for all we know.

“Star Wars: Episode VII” is expected to hit theaters December 18, 2015.
