246: Wookiee Hugs for Peter Mayhew

Join us for a tribute to Peter Mayhew, the man who gave life to Chewbacca with those big blue eyes. Though he passed away on April 30th 2019, Peter lives on in the memories and stories we all share on this episode. We also curated several messages from his Star Wars co-stars, and go over his body of work. Chewbacca was not his only film role!

The family of Peter Mayhew, with deep love and sadness, regrets to share the news that Peter has passed away. He left us the evening of April 30, 2019 with his family by his side in his North Texas home.

Peter Mayhew was scheduled to appear at Fan Expo Dallas that weekend, May 3-5. Teresa Delgado was there and witnessed the touching tribute to him. Fan Expo Dallas turned his signing table into a memorial with books to sign and set it up for donations for the Peter Mayhew Foundation. His Q&A Panel turned into a Tribute panel. Thank you to Teresa for these touching pictures.
