'Star Wars: Episode VII': Disney chairman snaps selfie with Chewbacca

Posted on

Thirty-some years later, and not a hint of gray.

Do Wookiees dye their fur? Probably not. Maybe they just age more gracefully than whatever the hell Yoda is.

Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger posted this selfie with Chewbacca to the official Star Wars instagram account with not much explanation. Is it from the set of J.J. Abrams’ soon-to-start-shooting Episode VII? Maybe. If anyone could get away with snapping photos on set, it’s this bossman.

Peter Mayhew, who originated the role of Chewie, will be back for the Dec. 18, 2015 movie, but it’s hard to tell if that’s him inside the suit or not. All we can tell from looking at this is that if this is the new Chewbacca, he looks good for his age.
