But sources told The Hollywood Reporter that fans can expect a familiar face when Episode VII debuts next year.
Peter Mayhew, who played gentle Wookiee Chewbacca in the original series, will return to the hirsute role, alongside lovable droid R2-D2.
Disney and Lucasfilm also confirmed last month that Episode VII would take place 30 years after the original trilogy's final installment, Return of the Jedi.
Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters December 18, 2015.
