EDIT

On Monday, it was confirmed that Chewbacca will be returning for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ – joining R2-D2 as the only confirmed character returning for the sequel, along with newcomer Adam Driver, whose deal is likely closed already.

Still not confirmed for ‘Episode 7’ include the likes of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo and ... Lumpy.

Lumpy, if you don’t remember, made his ‘Star Wars’ debut during the 1978 ‘Star Wars Holiday Special.’ The son of Chewbacca is now a 46-year-old real estate broker and we were lucky enough to catch up with him to find out if he, too, will be following his father back to the big screen in ‘Episode 7.’

So, Lumpy, are you excited about Chewbacca returning for ‘Episode 7’?

Ngaarrr.

Did I hear a hint of jealousy in that answer?

Ngaarrr.

To be fair, Chewbacca is a much more popular character.

Ngaarrr.

I’m not completely convinced people remember you at all, to be honest.

NGAARRR!

I agree, being a child star can be tough.

Ngaarrr.

Did you ever use dope?

Ngaarrr.

Interesting.

Ngaarrr.

Did you have any wild nights with your celebrity friends?

Ngaarrr.

Wait, with Scott Baio?

Ngaarrr.

I never knew he had such a wonderful singing voice.

Ngaarrr.

Well, we all have nights that we aren’t proud of. So, the big question, are you returning for ‘Episode 7’?

Ngaarrr.

So you’ve heard nothing?

Ngaarrr.

Not even some sort of vague hint?

Ngaarrr.

Can I feed you an apple?

Ngaarrr.

Can a new ‘Star Wars’ film possibly be good without you?

Ngaarrr.

On the 'Holiday Special,' did you meet Harvey Korman?

Ngaarrr

That’s a shame.

Ngaarrr.

When you filmed the Holiday Special, what was it like meeting Harrison Ford?

Ngaarrr.

He said that?

Ngaarrr.

What’s your favorite Harrison Ford movie?

Ngaarrr.

I agree, ‘Sabrina’ is underrated.

Ngaarrr.

Has Chewbacca told you if Harrison is returning for ‘Episode 7’ or not?

Ngaarrr.

I imagine he had to sign some sort of non-disclosure agreement. I wouldn’t take it personally.

Ngaarrr.

Did Chewbacca reveal any details about the new movie?

Ngaarrr.

That’s a really interesting plot choice. I would have never thought of that, but it makes perfect sense.

Ngaarrr.

Did you see the new Captain America movie?

Ngaarrr.

Do you like blue milk?

Ngaarrr.

Remember when Chewbacca met Yoda? That was weird, right?

Ngaarrr.

I don’t want to take anymore of your time, Lumpy. I really hope things turn around for you. Thanks for talking to us. It was a pleasure to meet you.

You too.
