The Resistance cancels con appearance to film Star Wars: Episode VIII?

By  | 

Our good buddy Hawes, a First Order sympathizer at the Blue Harvest Podcast, has alerted us that the Resistance actors from Star Wars: The Force Awakens have had to cancel their appearances at Pensacon. The appearance was to take place from February 19-21. It appears as if Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar) have canceled and Jessica Henwick (Jessika Pava) and Mike Quinn (Nien Nunb) are still in up in the air:

It would seem at least some of the Resistance is getting back together for Star Wars: Episode VIII. I would imagine Pava and Nunb would return for cockpit-based filming if VIII is anything like VII and that will likely be done at a different time altogether.
