STAR WARS EPISODE III!! Beloved OT Character Returns! We Manage To Totally Forget To Report It!!

Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab.

Thank you to all 9 grazillion of you who e-mailed us the link from the official STAR WARS site which confirms a pretty big spoiler appearance by a classic Original Trilogy character. I sort of wish I didn’t know this, but I do. I’ll give you the choice by givin’ you a bit o’ spoiler space. And, yes, I know it’s been online since Wednesday night. Right now’s the first chance I’ve had to update, but I figured we’d all want a place to Talk Back about this, right? Anyway...

Spoiler Space...

Okay, that’s fine. Peter Mayhew has been signed to play the role of Chewbacca for EPISODE III. I’m not sure I like just how small the galaxy seems to be in these films. Everybody’s met before EPISODE IV even begins, it seems. But how can I complain about the return of my favorite STAR WARS character? And played by the original actor? I can’t. I’ll admit it... I’m thrilled. I want to see Chewie again. The thought of it makes me smile.

And just so we’re clear... I wasn’t being sarcastic. Thanks to everyone who wrote in to mention this. You’re all obviously excited about the announcement, too.

"Moriarty" out.
