The source the “creature” images never referred to it as “Matilda”, but the descriptions I have read about “Matilda” seem to fit what is seen here. To me, it is obvious tihs “creature” is simply a Chewbacca mask with the hair reworked to be a different color and texture. I welcome comments from anyone who thinks otherwise.Bill Munns
Matt Moneymaker is addressing the issue and stating the images of Matilda are not of a mask on twitter.
@MattMoneymaker1 Anyone know where these pictures came from?DuffBrew85
@DuffBrew85 That’s incorrect. It’s not a modified Chewbaca mask. It’s a real animal. Several people saw it in person, including Bindernagel.
Clarifications: 1) Camcorder used for Matilda face shot *not* Hi-Def. 2) Matilda never growled at camera operator. 3) It’s less than 30 secsMattMoneymaker1
