London, England - February 17, 2016 - Peter Mayhew, the actor that has portrayed Chewbacca in the Star Wars franchise since it’s inception in 1977, is releasing his original script that he received in 1976 for Star Wars to celebrate the start of filming on Episode VIII. Peter will be releasing a few pages on his Twitter each day. On the final day of the release of the script Peter will pair it with a big announcement.

“The Adventures of Luke Starkiller as taken from the‘Journal of the Whills'” by George Lucas reads completely different from what Star Wars Episode IV eventually became. Peter’s script along with Peter’s wookiee coffee thumbprints and notes scrawled on the pages are a treat to read and brings us back to the root of what made Star Wars great.
