First Chewbacca Photo From ‘Star Wars’ Set Is A Selfie With Bob Iger… Maybe

It’s the selfie seen ’round the Galaxy.

A photo posted to the official Star Wars Instagram account on Sunday shows Disney boss Bob Iger posing with Chewbacca — and it’s been racing through Twitter, Imgur, Reddit and more with all the speed of a smuggler trying to make the Kessel Run.

Online, many have speculated that the photo could be the first image of a character on the set of “Star Wars: Episode VII,” which is going into production in London. Some have even postulated that the man in the costume is none other than Peter Mayhew, the actor who portrays Chewie in the films and is reprising the role in “Episode VII,” and that the image was taken at Pinewood Studios in London, where portions of the movie will be shot.

However, the only description on the Instagram image is “Chairman’s new co-pilot. #StarWarsDay,” and Mayhew’s Twitter account has been silent for a few days.
