Chewbacca to return in Episode 3

An article on the official Star Wars site indicates that we will be seeing actor Peter Mayhew reprising his role as Chewbacca in Star Wars:Episode III: A hope for a Better Name (my joke, sorry George).

Interesting is that according to IMDB, he's not had a lick of non-Star Wars related work since 1983 and he's now nearly 60 years old (twice as old as he was in the original) and playing a character who will be half as old as he was in the original. Good thing that's a full body suit.
