Not long ago the twitter account comicpalooza sent out a tweet notifying everyone that Peter Mayhew has cancelled his intended plans of having an appearance, which would have taken place in the may event. The interesting thing is the reason why they said he has cancelled.
We regret to announce that Peter Mayhew is canceling his appearance at Comicpalooza this year due to filming.

Now considering his double knee operation he had not too long ago everyone has been worried he might not be able to reprise his role of the very loved Wookie. Mayhew was quoted not too long ago with saying “I intend to pursue the role of Chewbacca for Episode VII”. We all hope he returns to Star Wars: Episode VII but no one was certain he could due to the timing of the surgery or how large or small his role could be due to it. Well This tweet has ignited a fire in the hopes of fans and surely this means he returns to a galaxy far, far away. It wouldn’t be the same without him. As usual, hold your hopes until we get a real confirmation.
