     "Star Wars" actor, Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca in the film sent his heartfelt condolences to a 7-year-old boy whose friend died recently.

    "I am sorry to hear that you won't be able to see the new 'Star Wars' movie with your friend Sam. I know that sometimes things happen and we can't figure out why and all we feel is sadness," the note said. "I know that you are going to love 'Star Wars.' I wish you the very best, and May The Force Be With You! (sic)"

    The boy Liam recently lost his friend and "Star Wars" fan Sam Miller in an ATV accident, according to a GoFundMe fundraising page.
