    Please come back right after you send that e-mail. If you really are Peter Mayhew, then we'd all love to talk to you. And the answer to your original post is yes, there is a lot of interest in seeing Chewie back for Episode III.

    Thankyou very much, Mr Mayhew. Please come back as often as you like. To say we all enjoy your characterisation immensely is an understatement.

    And to answer your question, Mr. Mayhew, there's been a rumour that Chewbacca would be back, but so far, nothing to substantiate it.
    As far as I know, he's not to be seen in Episode 2. Episode 3 script is not done yet. There's hope ;-)

    Welcome, Mr. Mayhew. We are so honored. In response to your question: Does Chewbacca get to come back in Episode III??

    What do you think?
    Would YOU like him to? How do you see him in the Prequel trilogy? A cameo?

    Maybe we could see some more wookiees in the prequel trilogy, maybe in Episode III being enslaved. Maybe GL could have Chewbacca as one of them, just to show the perfidy of the Empire and give non EU fans a bit of understanding of Chewie's background.

    Wow, I'm talking to the Mighty Chewbacca. He should never have died.

    Mr Mayhew, how did you feel about the Death of Chewbacca?

    We'd love to see Chewie back in EP3, simply because it's always fun to see the back stories behind what we all know in original trilogy.

    I don't think we've seen anything Official about him being in EP3, but I would expect you to be one of the first to know!

    One of the nice things about your character in costume, is that they can't tell you, that you look too old to play the character at a younger age.

    Wow. This certainly isn't something you see every day. How awesome is this?!?

    Personally, I'd like to see at least a cameo from Chewie. I don't think it would be that much of a stretch, especially considering we've got Boba Fett in Ep. 2 (if that could be made to work, Chewie showing up could be, too).

    LOL @ GIMER... How true...

    Thanks for stopping by, Mr. Mayhew!

    Unfortunately, like the dulcet tones of Mr Prowse inside the plastic helmet, onset vocalisations by Peter Mayhew did not apparently make it to the soundtrack! Chewie's voice is a young 'talkative' brown bear, IIRC.

    On the issue of the topic, it still has to be explained *where* Obi-Wan learned to speak Wookiee.

    ;-)

    My question:
    The Star Wars Holiday Special....after viewing it, were you glad you had to wear a mask unlike Mark, Harrison and Carrie who had to play it with a straight face?

    Just kidding :) I actually loved that when I was a kid!

    I think it's a possibility that Chewbacca could come back for SW3. After all, we saw several delegates from Kashyyk in the senate during SW1.

    ILM could easily make Mr. Mayhew's* costume look younger, too. Only 170 years old. ;) Shorter hair, maybe. I'm just guessing here, but the older Kashyyk delegates all seemed to have much longer hair than Chewbacca, and Chewie's own hair seemed to get longer as the original trilogy progressed.

    Furthermore, I don't think that Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi character would interfere with a Chewbacca "comeback." I agree with Chyren that it should be established how Obi-Wan learned to speak bear cub. Alec Guinness doesn't have any lines in SW4 that indicate to the audience that he's meeting Chewie for the first time. He merely has a short conversation with Chewie and then introduces him to Luke. That short conversation could easily have been a reunion for them.

    "Hey, Chewbacca! Long time, no see! How's the wife and cubs? ...What's that? You're a co-pilot now, eh? Rock on with yer bad self!"

    :)




    *(That reminds me... how do you prefer to be addressed, Mr. Mayhew? Is it okay if we call you Peter?)
