What big Chewbacca announcement is coming?

Actor Peter Mayhew, who is the very famous face behind the Chewbacca mask, is teasing something Star Wars-related. What can it be? Something related to an upcoming spinoff movie perhaps? Not sure; it might not even have to do with Chewbacca at all, but his Tweet sure suggests as much.

On Wednesday, Mayhew posted pictures of the original Star Wars script, which isn’t necessarily new, but it’s a fun look back at what the movie was like on paper before being created into one of Hollywood’s most beloved sci-fi adventures.

“Revised Fourth Draft,” the script says, “March 15, 1976.” Also of note: “The Adventures of Luke Starkiller as taken from the ‘Journal of the Whills.’”

Before becoming a Skywalker, Luke was originally referred to as Starkiller before his name was eventually changed by George Lucas. It’s also why in The Force Awakens the First Order’s base was referred to as Starkiller Base.

Check out the pictures shared by Mayhew above, and stay tuned for his “big announcement.”
