Just in case there wasn't enough to worry about with Star Wars: Episode VII, now there's also the welfare of a 70-year-old man in a big furry suit to worry about. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Peter Mayhew, the original Chewbacca actor who had a double knee-replacement last year, will return to his Wookiee costume for the latest sequel. Please, be gentle with him, JJ Abrams. Even Vader knew enough to not do anything too life-threatening to Chewie.
