Continuing with the theme of May the 4th I thought it was appropriate to write a little Blog on one of my favourite characters from Star Wars…Chewbacca!

Chewbacca (also known as Chewie) is most well known for being Hans Solo “right-hand” man in the Star War trilogies and is played by Peter Mayhew.

Chewbacca is from the planet/country Kashyyyk and helps Hans Solo to fly the Millennium Falcon. They fly around the other planets as “odd jobs” men. Chewbacca’s species are called “Wookiees” and they cannot speak English, instead they make a loud growls and grunt like noises. Chewbacca is actually named after a great warrior of his species called “Bacca”.

I even had the privilege of meeting him.
