Counting down the 213 days until The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.

In the days leading up to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, And There Came A Day will present links, images, videos, art, memories, laughs, theories and thoughts leading up to the big day… which happens to be on my birthday!  ENJOY and may the Force be with you, always… or at least until 12.18.15!


Star Wars legend has it that Peter Mayhew showed up for an audition for A New Hope and got the role of Chewbacca the minute George Lucas laid eyes on him. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know that playing Chewbacca is more than just wearing the costume. What we love about the Wookie has much to do with Mayhew’s performance.

Happy 71st birthday, Peter Mayhew!
