Peter Mayhew, aka Chewbacca, fires up Kickstarter for documentary.

It’s official, Star Wars fans. There will be a documentary based on ┬áPeter Mayhew, known widely for his role as Chewbacca in the Star Wars‘ films. The Kickstarter project has been successfully funded, but the film could still use your help.

Appropriately titled “Standing In The Stars,” the documentary will follow Mayhew’s journey as he goes through surgery to deal with the giantism he was born with, a condition that makes it difficult for him to stand upright or walk. He will be requiring a total of four surgeries, which the documentary will cover, followed by intense rehabilitation and recovery. The film will also go into details about Mayhew’s childhood, along with how his condition has affected his life.

There are lots of great goodies to be gained by donating to the Kickstarter project, including memorabilia that the Mayhew family has set aside just for this. Check out the project here and please consider donating.
