Word has been spreading throughout the internet of the possible first picture from the set of Star Wars Episode VII, and it is of none other than everyone's favorite furry friend, Chewbacca with Disney CEO Bob Iger.
This picture comes to us from the official Star Wars Instagram, and can't help but put a smile on our faces. Clearly the one in the suit is Peter Mayhew, because nobody quite has that perfect combination of height, head tilt, and big adorable eyes that makes Chewbacca perfect. Every day closer to the release of the film, I can't help but think "It's actually happening!!!" and jump up and down.
To those of you who are saying "Shouldn't he have a little gray in his hair or something?", time to hand in your fan card. Wookiees can live up to 700 years or so, and Chewie is only around 200 in the Original Trilogy. 30 years is like nothing, and he doesn't look a day over 150, and at the risk of having your arms ripped out of your sockets, be sure to tell him that!
