'Star Wars' faves back for prequel

28 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

George Lucas is bringing back the classic characters Chewbacca the Wookie, C-3PO and R2-D2 for the upcoming Star Wars Episode III. The director has already hired actors Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker to reprise their roles as sprightlier versions of their characters for the prequel in preproduction. All three actors have donned costumes in past Star Wars episodes, and in the case of Daniel and Baker, the thespians have loaned their voice talents to puppet and motion-control versions of their characters. Lucas has noted in the past that having Baker inside the R2-D2 suit brought "an element of humanity" to the character. »
