Casting is slowly leeching out for Star Wars Episode VII. We got word today that Peter Mayhew will be reprising the role of Chewbacca, Han Solo's wookiee pal, in Episode VII. There are no other details on what importance he will play but we do know that he will be in it.
Chewbacca was in the original trilogy and made a cameo appearance in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith when Yoda visited his home planet of Kashyyyk. Rumors that original trilogy cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill will return are still running rampant. It is possible that they could appear in cameo roles along with Chewbacca. I'm personally not banking on him having a major role in this new movie. Unless Wookiees don't ever age or something.
Many are predicting a full casting announcement will be coming on May 4th due to the fact that it is Star Wars Day (aka, May the Fourth be with You), so we shall wait and see.
