Star Wars Episode VII Chewbacca First Look?!?

Jay Cochran - May 05, 2014
LOL, sorry I couldn't resist with the headline. With all the hype surrounding the upcoming Star Wars movies that has already started and I am sure will only get worse I couldn't help laugh when people started passing around this image from Instagram yesterday of Disney Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger standing next to someone in a Chewbacca costume saying this was likely our first look at the Episode VII Chewbacca. Now it's certainly possible this could be a costume that will be used in the new movie but what makes it so funny boarding on the ridiculousness is that even if it is, it looks just like Chewbacca from Episode IV, or V or VI or III. I mean it's Chewbacca and unless he decided to give himself a Mohawk or shave all his fur off he really isn't going to change that much from movie to movie. Anyway enjoy the image and we hope you all had a good Star Wars Day yesterday as things for Star Wars fans are certainly looking bright in the coming days.

Star Wars Episode VII which is being directed by J.J. Abrams will star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. It is slated to open in theaters on December 18, 2015.

Yeah... I'm gonna stick with this explanation:

Disgusting, but at least more creative.

The mystery is solved! We now know why C3PO has a red arm.

C-3P0 had a red arm?

I just wanna add two things: "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" and "Fury Road."

YES!! I agree whole-heartedly my friend...two excellent examples of incredible technical achievements in movie-making when the parties involved don't take the easy way out...

Y'know feat...for years, in the scene in "Darby O'Gill" where Darby's telling the story in the pub about how he had actually caught the King of the Leprechauns, and in the flashback sequence, you see Darby standing over the king as he's cornered in a little nook of the castle and he asks for his three wishes...I always thought that was some kind of cut-away/green-screen trick or something, to make the king look so small and Darby so large, when in actuality they're both on set, just placed at different distances from the camera in a technique called forced-perspective, and the set is actually painted and arranged in such a way that it all looks perfectly real. Peter Jackson utilized the same technique in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films in certain scenes, and it's amazing when film-makers go out of their way to try practical shots like that to make something look completely real and believable instead of lazily injecting some fake CGI element.

Deleted scenes: I was this close to getting that Snowspeeder vehicle but I think it not being "in the movie" held me back. Well, it IS in the movie, just cut out. I bought it on clearance at WM this past weekend.

I have seen it but passed too.I wish my Walmart had it on clearance

Grab one and scan it. I took mine from the regular stock shelf, no clearance tag, still rang up $20.

JJ is a freaking idiot doing this.

Don't let this get to ya too much. This is a manufactured story cooked up by the media. They've made the rounds asking multiple people involved in TFA the same question: "Hey John Boyega, is it possible Finn is gay?", "Hey Oscar Issac, is it possible Poe is gay?", "Hey Mark Hamill, is it possible Luke is gay?", "Hey JJ Abrams, is it possible there will be a gay character in Star Wars?". It's almost as if the media has an agenda. Look for the same question to be asked of Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, and Nein Nunb soon!

And the responses are all the same, "Yeah, sure it's possible and I think it would be a great idea. Ya know we live in a world now where blah blah blah....tolerance blah blah blah....acceptance blah blah.....". And that's the answer they HAVE to give. We've all seen what happens to people who dare to be anything less that 100% supportive of this stuff. If social media gets wind of it, it's all over for you.
