A picture that was posted on the Star Wars Instagram page may be the first look at everyone’s favorite fur ball from that galaxy far, far away. It appears that the Disney Chairman and CEO, Bob Iger, has posed for a picture with the the Mighty Wookie Chewbacca. Speculation is that this is Chewbacca new design and costume that makes him look about thirty years older then when we last saw him in Return of the Jedi.
The question is: Was that Peter Mayhew in the costume?
