God, this is hard for me to write about. Peter was such a great man and he made me love Star Wars. I can't believe we've lost another great legend. First Carrie Fisher and now Peter Mayhew. I can't believe he's no longer here with us, but he's in a better place. I'll always remember him and he'll always be with us. May the Force be with us.

Awwww Chewy why did you have to leave us. I guess there other galaxies you wish to explore....

Posted by A friend   May 02, 2019

I'm 14 and I've grown up with Star Wars. I always loved Peter Mayhew. Chewbacca was always one of them characters, that would make you smile and laugh no matter what... Peter perfectly portrayed the character and did great, beautiful things outside of acting. He raised money to help children, which is such a humble thing, as he was suffering from his own health issues. When I discovered he passed away, I began crying immediately because I couldn't believe it. I know now that he's no longer in pain, though, which I'm thankful about. Rest in peace, Peter. May the force be with you, always <3>
