What is the single greatest romance in Star Wars? In The Force Awakens, when Han, Fin, Rey, and BB-8 meet up with Maz, she asks where her 'boyfriend' Chewbacca is. When Yahoo Movies asked Maz herself, Lupita NYong’o, if there was any hope for those two, she said this.
Legendary Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew has shared part of the original script he owns from ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’, whereby Obi-Wan Kenobi survives his battle with Darth Vader. Mayhew (who’s also in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ as the seven foot wookie) has been sharing pages from his original script on Twitter ever since February.
What is Princess Leia’s beef with Chewbacca? First she snubbed him by not awarding him with a medal at the end of ‘Star Wars’ and then she snubbed him at the end of ‘The Force Awakens’ at his most fragile moment in the series yet. JJ Abrams has held his hands up and admitted the second, arguably more devastating, snub is his biggest regret about making ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.
Disney chief Bob Iger talked Star Wars during his time at the Deutsche Bank 2016 Media, Internet & Telecom Conference on Tuesday, confirming that Chewbacca would appear in the new Han Solo standalone movie being directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The next film in the Star Wars universe to hit theaters will be Gareth Edwards‘ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is due on Dec. 18. “Rogue One … is about a band of rebels plotting to steal the plans to the Death Star,” the Disney boss said.
Peter Mayhew, the actor under the fur suit in the original Star Wars trilogy and The Force Awakens, has been taking to Twitter for the past few weeks to post his script for the 1977 film that launched the franchise. For years, it was clear to pretty much everyone in the galaxy that Han wasn’t going to be outrdrawn by a lizard-looking twerp, and that before Greedo could pull the trigger, Han shot first.
Surprisingly, there was around 20 minutes of footage cut from J.J. Abrams’ ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, including a rather grisly scene involving Chewbacca, if rumour is to be believed. Den of Geek reckon they’ve sufficient evidence to assume one of the deleted scenes is a violent one involving Chewbacca in the cantina on the planet of Takodana. After having her gun snatched by Plutt, Chewbacca defends her by grabbing and ripping his arms off, which is nice.
‘Star Wars’ fans will be delighted that Chewbacca, Han Solo’s faithful buddy, returns for a prominent role in ‘The Force Awakens’. It’s also heartening that the actor who played him in the original films, Peter Mayhew, is also back inside the costume this time around.
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ may have revealed its first casualty… as a major character’s death scene is potentially seen in the new trailer.
