Star Wars 7: First image of Chewbacca revealed
The image was posted with the caption: “Chairman’s new co-pilot #StarWarsDay” with no other information about where the picture was taken, or whether actor Peter Mayhew was inside the costume.
Fans online have been quick to speculate that the picture was taken on set at Pinewood Studios in north London, where the JJ Abrams sequel is being filmed.
But it is yet to be confirmed if Mayhew is indeed inside the costume, or where the photograph was taken.
The Star Wars 7 cast was finally confirmed last week after months of speculation, with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill all set to reprise their roles.
Set 30 years after the 1983’s Return of the Jedi, the sequel is intended as the first instalment of a new trilogy produced by Lucasfilm and its parent company Disney.
Star Wars: Episode 7 is due for release in the UK and US on 18 December, 2015.
