Star Wars: 16 Things You Didn’t Know About Chewbacca

chewbacca-star-wars
Chewbacca is one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe, and with good reason. Hailing from a race of furry, tree-dwelling warriors of the planet Kashyyyk, Chewbacca’s virtues are numerous. He’s a mean shot with a Bowcaster, and he’s always got your back. He’s fiercely loyal and one hell of a co-pilot – not just anyone could fly the Millennium Falcon through the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs. He may be a sore loser at Space Chess, but he’s got a great sense of humor (“laugh it up, fuzzball“), and he’s usually good for a hug, whether you’re celebrating a victory over the evil Empire or mourning fallen comrades.

In the prequels, we learn that Chewie saw some action in the Clone Wars, long before he and Han Solo aided the rebels in the Galactic Civil War. So, at least for this Wookiee, their enlistment was never just about getting out of debt with Jabba the Hutt. Both Han and Chewie were instrumental in securing several crucial victories. His work for the rebellion tells us a lot about his personality and character, but in some ways, Chewie is still an intergalactic dog-man of mystery.

Here are 15 surprising and little known facts about everybody’s favorite Wookiee.
