Wookies are like Yoda's race--they have very, very long life cycles compared to humans. According to official sources outside the film, Chewie is in his 200s in the original films.
Also, I am pretty psyched about the film. The trailer makes it seem like we're finally going to get a character-driven film in this series for the first time since the 1980s.
As long as they don't do something stupid like clone/resurrect either Vader or the Emperor or turn Luke into a villain, I'm sold.
