UPDATED: This is it. We're making a Peter Mayhew "Chewbacca" Documentary! Now the only question left is, "How far can we take it?" Read more
This project was successfully funded on September 14, 2013.
Chewie on this: Bacca outta the wheel chair.
After many months of tireless effort we're reaping the rewards. Peter has taken to his feet.
Two weeks ago, within 6 months of his surgery Peter has eliminated the wheelchair from his day to day life all together. He's built the strength to be able to stand on his own two feet and walk long distances without the use of the wheelchair that has bound him for the last few years. In the last two weeks we've been to two conventions with him where he's been able to traverse the entirety of the show without a wheelchair.
Rehabilitation continues five days a week and 2-3 hours a day. The last two hurdles to overcome are balance and standing for extended periods of time unassisted.
Meanwhile, we're in fulfillment on the Kickstarter team. We still have 100+ backers that have not filled out the survey that will give us the ability to ship their rewards out to them. If you have not done so yet, please fill out the survey. It collects the information we need from you about shipping and any additional details pertaining to your reward tier.
This month we will begin sending out the Incentives that include digital copies of the documentary and we will keep you up to date on our progress as well as dates on the packages that include hard copies of the documentary.
The documentary follows Peter and as such will not reach its end until he does but, none the less, we are in post production. We are already editing together what we've collected over the past 6 months and will continue to build it as Peter rounds the last corner, finishes this chapter, and turns over a new page in the story of his life.
Thank you for making this possible,
Peter, Ryan & The Standing in the Stars Team
