Star Wars Episode VII Bringing Back Chewbacca With New Casting Call?

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11237:]]

With Han Solo and Harrison Ford all but guaranteed to be returning for Star Wars: Episode VII, Chewbacca can’t be far behind, and that is what a new casting call seems to call for.

A request has been put out for someone to fill some big shoes in London with an actor wanted at a desired height of 7-feet-tall.

Den of Geek notes that original Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew comes in at 7’3″.

It’s possible the new casting call could be for someone to replace Mayhew, as I believe his knees are bad and he recently underwent surgery, or the role could be for a new Wookie or something entirely different.

Here is the casting call:

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.

“Star Wars: Episode VII” has a 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams.

The season finale airs Tuesday, September 17th at 10pm ET and sees cast member Victoria get a life-changing surprise from her boyfriend and cosplay collaborator, Jinyo.

It doesn’t take a Jedi mind trick to pull off the ultimate fanboy marriage proposal, but a little help from Chewbacca himself – Star Wars actor Peter Mayhew – doesn’t hurt!  In the season finale, the world’s most famous Wookie helps Jinyo woo Victoria with a surprise she’ll never forget.
