Peter Mayhew, who has been rumored to be returning as Chewbacca in Episode VII, will be in attendance as a celebrity guest at this weekend's Supanova convention in Melbourne, Australia.
When asked about his rumored Episode VII return in an article posted on The Age, Mayhew was coy as expected.
Before we wrap, there's one more question I have to ask, even though I've been warned not to. Reports surfaced this week that he has been cast in Star Wars Episode VII, which is now in production in London. ''What was the question?'' he asks, reverting to the angry Wookiee demeanour of the first minutes of our chat.
Is it true? ''I cannot deny and I cannot confirm either.'' I figure it's best I don't push it. The force may not be entirely with him, but only a dummy would provoke a giant with a light sabre in his hand.
