Thank you, Peter Mayhew, for your excellent portrayal of such an endearing character. May the Force be with you.

Han Solo may be 'dead' in one of the later STAR WARS flicks but he is now joined by his Wookiee pal in the afterlife, where stars always shine. STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE was the film we saw on my very first date. Now another door to part of my growing up years is shut forever.

RIP PETER MAYHEW

THE FORCE WILL BE WITH YOU, ALWAYS

Say hello to Sir Alec Guinness and Carrie Fisher for me.

The character Chewbacca isn't dead, so why would the character Chewbacca join his deceased pal Han Solo in the afterlife?

Rip Chewbacca. He was by far the best actor/character in the Star Wars franchise, compared to boring one like Han Solo. It was amazing he was 221cm tall!!

I didn’t know Chewbacca ever shaved - his whole body. I hope he had fun in the role.

Just like the original man in the Godzilla suit recently died, but the movie character continues on.
