Entertainment Weekly reports that Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew will be sharing pages from the original “STAR WARS” script from his Twitter account. The British actor added that he will reveal the pages each day all while promising a huge announcement.

Mayhew’s original screenplay is similar to the 1977 film with a few exceptions. For instance, R2-D2 is depicted as a “short claw-armed tripod” with “a face made of computer lights surrounding a radar eye.” The farm boy hero known as Luke Skywalker is named “Luke Starkiller” and is introduced in the very beginning of the story.

Disney CEO Bob Iger recently announced that “STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII” has commenced principal photography with director Rian Johnson at the helm. The cast includes Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis with new cast members Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran.
