Peter Mayhew, the actor who brought beloved Star Wars character Chewbacca to life, passed away recently.

His family made the announcement on his Twitter account @TheWookieRoars today.

“The family of Peter Mayhew, with deep love and sadness, regrets to share the news that Peter has passed away. He left us the evening of April 30, 2019 with his family by his side in his North Texas home.”


The Tweet also featured a long message detailing Mayhew’s life and urging the public to donate to his charity foundation.

However, Mayhew’s Twitter account remained active today, his family apparently tweeting or retweeting articles or comments, and replying tweets.

It’s so sad and sweet at the same time.

Rest well, Mr Mayhew.
