STAR WARS: Chewbacca Had a Life, Long Before Han Solo


Solo: A Star Wars Story’s trailer showed us Chewbacca was 190 years old before meeting Han Solo.  The exploits of Han and Chewie have become legend. But what was our favorite Wookiee doing before they teamed up?

A Long Time Ago

Chewbacca, like most Wookiees, was born on the Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk.  Wookiees live in the towering tree tops of the densely forested planet.  Kashyyyk was first introduced in 1978’s The Star Wars Holiday Special along with Chewbacca’s family. Confirmed in the new Star Wars novels is Chewie’s wife, Mallatobuck, and their son, Lumpawaroo.  Therefore, Chewbacca’s loving embrace of another Wookiee in the Solo trailer points to a Malla cameo.
