  1. R.I.P. Peter William Mayhew 1944-2019 for Playing Chewbacca in Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope, Star Wars The Holiday Special, Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Return Of The Ewok, Star Wars Episode VI Return Of The Jedi, Star Wars Episode III Revenge Of The Sith, and Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens has Died at the age of 74 you will be missed Chewy my favorite Star Wars Character I like and May The Force Be With You

  2. R.I.P., Peter Mayhew, Chewbacca aka "Walking Carpet" – Princess Leia
    Have fun in Heaven with Carrie Fisher, Sir Alec Guinness, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing. May The Force Be With You (All).

Second, someone needs to direct Mr Stephanopoulos so he doesn't put his hand into the area devoted to the overlay, necessitating the movement of the camera to attempt to keep it in frame.

  4. Now it's going to be really hard to watch IX (aka The Rise of Skywalker) without crying. First Kenny Baker (R2-D2), then Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), and now Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca). All 3 will now rest in peace together. And May The Force be With You.

  5. I was a little boy when my mom took me to see Star Wars back in 1977 and thought Chewbacca was the best characters in the movie and one of the best character's in the Star Wars franchise. R.I.P. Peter Mayhew. You will be missed.

  6. "…the day, Chewbaca died. We were singin', bye bye Solo's number one guy, brought the Falcon through the Kessel Run 'out blinkin' an eye. He don't like droids they're risky to fly, and singin' "raaaar raaaar raaar raaar raaar raaar raar raar".
