Chewbacca returns for "Star Wars Episode 3"

Good news for classic "Star Wars" fans with The Official site reporting that Chewbacca will be back on board for Episode 3. "I’m delighted to return as Chewbacca," Peter Mayhew tells the site. "I think his re-appearance in this film is a fitting way to tie the whole saga together, especially for Wookiee fans." Given that Chewbacca is a sprightly 200 years old in Episode IV, he is more than old enough to fit into the prequel timeline. R2D2 and C3P0 are also back on board.
