Star Wars: Episode III: Peter Mayhew will return as Chewbacca in George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode III. Mayhew talks to Sci Fi Wire and says he has yet to get started.

"I just went out there to do some publicity for it, and they said, 'Right, we'll keep in touch and let you know when we need you,'" Mayhew said. "I talked to George, and he was pleased to see us out there. When I go back [to actually shoot Chewbacca scenes] he will be even more pleased, because he'll be one step closer to getting the movie finished."

He also stated that he's done some costume fittings already.

"They were very successful," Mayhew said. "Chewie looks exactly the same as he always has. It was a wonderful feeling for any actor or artist to create something that looks as good today as it did when it was new."
