    What do you think? Do you want to Chewie appear in this? And do you want a young, well groomed Chewie?

    I would like that. I know Chewie is actually really old and long lived in the extended universe but seeing a young Chewie would be comparable to Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy

    Haha yeah this section of the Hype has been a little deserted since there's been no new information in a while but hopefully once they start casting etc it should get a bit more energy

    Is the actor that subbed in for Peter for parts of TFA going to play Chewie?

    With the new trailer I am really pleased to see the Han/Chewie dynamic will be on display. Also, like everybody else I'm all "Who is that other Wookie Chewie appears to be saying goodbye to?"

    There is or was was a Rumor that we see Chewies Family in this , and now it seems the Rumors are True which makes me extrem Happy that we also get more Backstory from Chewie too

    I've seen speculation it could be his wife.

    Awesomeness.

    And man, Chewie losing a wife/kids in the mines would be so frickin' sad. :(

    Will they be using Peter Mayhew at all in this (like for close-ups) or is it all another actor?

    Mayhew wasn't in The Last Jedi at all so I can't imagine that he'll be in Solo either.

    OK, thanks, just wondered! Peter's great but I know he's faced some health challenges.

    Unfortunately Peter is too hobbled these days to do much in the way of action, like in that gif showing the stunt where Chewie slams that Imperial.

    He's basically a consultant these days.

    I don't know if he was on set, but I think he more or less made himself available to the new guy to get the various little "Wookiee" ticks right.

    Was just watching some Chewbacca videos. Looking forward to seeing him the most.

    Chewie on set (promotion for #RoarForChange charity campaign):

    Here is the new Chewie actor Joonas Suotamo at 3:53 talking about the role and how he went on "Wookiee boot camp" where Peter Mayhew taught him about Chewbacca:

    Here Chewie looks like he's sort of in that Lethal Lothario mode a la "Do you think I'm sexy?"
