This news will surprise no one, but its nice to hear from an official source, Chewbacca will feature in the Han Solo spin movie...
The "official" word came from the new Han Solo himself, Aldern Ehrenreich, who said:
This comes from an interview Alden gave Variety, you can read that in full here, including Alden's views on the recent casting of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. Variety went on to ask if we would be seeing a younger Chewbacca in the film. Alden's response to that is below.
As Variety points out, it isn't clear who will be inside the fur suit for the Han Solo movie, but the smart money is on Joonas Suaotomo (The Force Awakens), hopefully with Peter Mayhew around to offer advice.
No one expected a Han Solo movie without his faithful friend to his right, but it is nice to hear official word on the matter. Check out the full article over at Variety by clicking here or at the source link.
