I was not planning to post anything for Star Wars Day 2019, but then I came across the video created by the University of Western Australia and decided I needed to share it.
It recognises the sad loss of Peter Mayhew, who passed away on the evening of April 30, 2019 with his family by his side in his North Texas home.
Peter is known for playing everyone’s favourite Wookie, Chewbacca, in the Star Wars movies from 1977 to 2015. His massive 2.18m (7 foot 2 inches) frame was perfect for portraying the larger than life character. Thank you Peter for being a joyful part of many people’s lives.

If you missed last year’s video when BB-8 was welcomed to the University of Western Australia, here it is.
