Suser, Robichaux and Susser had to fill things out with their own interpretation of what happened back then, the good, the bad and yes, the ugly. We just love that story. We were about 65 percent of the way done with the script and we just had some things we wanted to fill out. Revenge of the Sith. That would be a terrific thing for every Star Wars fan, and for those of us that want to see a great movie.

Throughout the first act of the Chewie script we see how Peter learns about a new sci-fi movie project that needs people of tall and short stature to play the parts of the aliens. Chewie deserves to be high up on The Black List. Part of the magical quality of the Chewie script is that is shows us the actors and creative team of Star Wars as human beings, with all of their failings, worries, bravery and likeability. There was once a time when nobody knew what a Wookiee was.

Let’s hope that Mayhew, now 67 and living in Texas, is invited to make a cameo appearance if Chewie ever gets made. We get to see Lucas try out different actors for the parts of Luke, Han and Leia, and why those roles eventually went to the people that they did.

But they did promise lots of Wookiee-speak throughout.
