Star Wars is to start its shooting for the seventh episode. And this time around, Star Wars: Episode VII will include the wookiee actor, Peter Mayhew, who will play the role of the hairy Chewbacca.
The production and direction of Star Wars: Episode VII is to begin soon. It will have J.J. Abrams as the director. He is a fine choice since he is the best equipped to handle the complex directing sequences. And the film has a whopping $200 million budget which sure is a lot of money. Let’s hope it will be put to good use.
Meanwhile, the resurrection of the 1980s series will be an experience in reminiscence and nostalgia alright. One actor who is coming back to play his role on the seventh episode is Peter Mayhew. He played Wookiee in the original and now he is to act as the shaggy monster named Chewbacca.
Peter Mayhew even cancelled a program which belied the fact that he was busy with the latest Star Wars episode. "We have a lot of them [in place]," Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said about the main actors, whose names have not been disclosed. "We're just not completely done yet."
The Disney Studios head spoke of how shooting for this latest version of Star Wars had already begun. The time of release is none other then next year in the month of December. Everyone is excited and looking forward to the occasion since the movie has many fans. And it is like a dream come true when the same movie that belonged to the greedy materialistic 80s era comes back to life in 2015.
Many new talented actors will be making appearances in the film. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will play their parts in the script-based scenes. The diminutive robot R2D2 is to be among the characters too.
Peter Mayhew also played Chewbacca in the third episode of Star Wars titled Revenge of the Sith. Star Wars includes in its movie moments some very decisive battles between the dark and evil Darth Vader and the heroic good guy Luke Skywalker. It also portrays spaceships and alien entities interacting with human beings.
