    From Brian Truitt of USAToday:
    JUST IN, statement from George Lucas: "Peter was a wonderful man. He was the closest any human being could be to a Wookiee: big heart, gentle nature…and I learned to always let him win. He was a good friend and I’m saddened by his passing."

    Death is a lot to process....I don't think family is under any obligation to announce it within a particular timeframe.

    Family didn't announce it. It was his agent.

    ...who would have done so only with the blessing of the family.
