The New Chewbacca Wrote A Letter To ‘Star Wars’ Fans And Peter Mayhew

The news was confirmed yesterday along with the Han Solo cast photo: Joonas Suotamo is fully taking over the role of Chewbacca after serving as a double for Peter Mayhew in The Force Awakens. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but Suotamo still took the time to write a heartfelt letter that shows his appreciation to fans while honoring Peter Mayhew:

Peter Mayhew hasn’t chimed in on the news thus far, but he’s not completely done with the role just yet. We still have The Last Jedi to look forward to.
