Peter I read was very tall, how tall? Try 7'3" tall, He has a successor that He trained on how to do Chewie I read on the HP, there is another article on CNN.

Mayhew retired from the role in 2015 due to health issues, but helped his replacement, Finnish actor and basketball star Joonas Suotamo, understand the nuances of playing Chewie in “The Last Jedi” (2017) and the “Star Wars” origin story “Solo” (2018).
