Rumor Alert: Chewbacca Casting For Episode VII
Posted by Dustin on September 29, 2013 at 10:05 PM CST |
Well we've heard that the old crew is returning and this helps seal the deal that we'll see Chewbacca in the new Star Wars film. Many fans might recall that Peter Mayhew just had a double knee replacement, thus the casting call for person the same height as Peter. Coincidence? Time will tell!

Below is a small snippet from the article over at the BBC where they have been in touch with Johnny Mathers.

Walt Disney Pictures/LucasFilm/Bad Robot have put out a casting call for a: "Male, 7 ft to 7.3 ft tall with a slim/thin build and upright posture.

"Not too worked out or too 'thick set' especially in the shoulders. Broad facial features would be a bonus".

Mr Mathers said his mum rang to tell him about the casting call which is for an "untitled studio feature".

"She said she'd heard the casting directors were looking for a 7ft 3 male and we twigged it was Star Wars," he said.

"There can't be that many roles for blokes my height and I'd love to be in it, no matter what capacity."
