Who's Who? Wednesday

February 17, 2016



Chewbacca is one of the main characters in the Star Wars Universe. He can be found in the films, 'Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith,' 'Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope,' 'Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back,' 'Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi,' 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens,' and he will be seen in other upcoming Star Wars films in the near future. In television shows he can be found in 'Phineas and Ferb,' 'The Muppet Show,' and 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars.' He can also be found in the video game Disney INFINITY: 3.0 Edition, Kinect Star Wars, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, Lego Star Wars: The Original Trilogy, Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, and there are rumors he will be a downloadable character in the new Star Wars Battlefront game that was just released a few months ago. Finally in other merchandise he can be found in pins, clothes, toys, books, Disney art, and vinylmations.


He is from the planet of Kashyyyk where he lived with his fellow Wookies. People he can count on when needed are Han Solo, Yoda, R2-D2, C-3PO, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Admiral Ackbar, Leia Organa, Wedge Antilles, Ahsoka Tano, Lando Calrissian, Finn, Poe, BB-8, and Rey. His enemies include Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, Emperor Palpatine, Jabba the Hutt, Captain Phasma, Clone Troopers, General Hux, Storm Troopers, and other various Sith Lords, and supporters of the Galactic Empire or First Order.

Chewbacca is extremely tall and has brown fur. He wears an ammo belt around his shoulder, and he uses his trusty Bowcaster as his weapon of choice. He is extremely loyal, very temperamental, and strong. He also loves poking jabs at Han Solo to get a rise out of him.

He was created by Ralph McQuarrie and George Lucas. He has be played by Peter Mayhew in every film to date.


Chewbacca can be found in Disney parks around the world as a meet and greet character, and in various attractions and shows. He can be found in Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Star Wars Launch Bay, and World of Color. I have a hunch we will be seeing him in Star Wars Land when it opens up in Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
