Coming Attractions creator Patrick Sauriol has posted his exclusive review of Evan Susser and Van Robichaux's spec script Chewie, giving it a glowing recommendation.

"Chewie deserves to be high up on The Black List. It’s a wonderful piece of writing that tells a very human story at its core," Sauriol writes in his review. "Sure, it’s cool because it will tell you things that you would never have dreamed actually happened to make Star Wars but the center of it is Peter Mayhew and his life-changing experience. And it’s a tale that’s told very well, from start to finish."
