Star Wars Star Delighted To Return

British actor PETER MAYHEW was delighted to reprise his role as STAR WARS legend CHEWBACCA in the sci-fi franchise's final installment EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH because it changed his life forever.

The towering screen icon, who stands a staggering 2.2 metres (seven foot three inches) tall, was plucked out of obscurity to star in the first three movies - and he jumped at the chance to don his Wookie costume one more time.

The 60-year-old says, "It's great to be doing something I helped start a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away."
