Cinema has created a number of iconic duos and at the top of mind for many fans are Han Solo and Chewbacca. First introduced in the original Star Wars film, the pair have become a beloved duo and fans were heartbroken when Han Solo met his untimely demise in The Force Awakens. Now, Star Wars Celebration Orlando has reunited the stars who portrayed the classic characters together, Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew, and the latter actor has shared an image of their time back together.
Posted on his official Twitter account, Mayhew added a caption expressing his joy over reuniting with Ford while also poking fun at his friend’s recent airplane mishaps.

8 Ways In Which ‘Star Wars’ Can Reach Its Full Potential
The Star Wars Universe is one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time and the high quality of the recent films are not only proving how strong a franchise it is, but also continuing to gain legions of new fans every year. The series is fantastic and Disney’s films have brought it back in favor with both audiences and fans, but like any good franchise there are always ways in which a series can improve and as a huge fan I don’t think the series is at its full potential yet. There have been some minor issues and things that could be done differently that could make the series even greater than it already is and these can be addressed in future Star Wars films and in other mediums as well. With all of this being said it is appropriate to look at some of these issues and see how they can be addressed in a manner that could give everyone what they will want.
