Oh, Ken, don't ever change.

Honestly, with all respect to Mayhew, but he's not exactly crucial to the role of Chewbacca, at least compared to other characters that were behind costumes or puppets. Frank Oz was the voice of Yoda as much as the operator, and it was Anthony Daniel's whiney voice that will forever be linked to C3PO.
Sadly, that sort of leaves Kenny Baker and Mayhew out. Baker is probably the easier of them to just back-burner, since he hates Daniels anyway. Mayhew it'd be sad to go (maybe they could work him in some other way), since he's so good with the fans (and good at insulting the TSA)... but they're not needed to still have the characters. R2 is mostly CGI for a lot of stuff, and a puppet otherwise. I would absolutely hate to see Chewie all 3D-ified, it would be as bad as Episode I puppet Yoda, but there could probably be a replacement "really tall skinny guy that can wear a shaggy rug."
