Chewbacca, sometimes known as “Chewie,” is a fictional character from the Star Wars series. He’s a wookiee, a hirsute, bipedal, intelligent race from the fictitious planet Kashyyyk. Chewbacca is Han Solo’s faithful buddy and first mate, and he acts as co-pilot on the Millennium Falcon, Solo’s spaceship. Together, they help the Rebel Alliance destroy the Galactic Empire and restore freedom to the galaxy.

Chewbacca is played by Peter Mayhew in the original trilogy. In the opening episode of the sequel trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mayhew co-stars with his body double, Joonas Suotamo. Suotamo took over the character in the next episode, The Last Jedi, and reprised it in the anthology film Solo: A Star Wars Story and The Rise of Skywalker, the last installment of the sequel trilogy. The figure has also appeared in a variety of Expanded Universe products, including television shows, novels, comic books, and video games.

After escaping Imperial custody on Mimban, Chewbacca, a 200-year-old wookiee, becomes a young Han Solo’s friend. Chewbacca embarks in the smuggling trade after a series of escapades on Vandor and Kessel, and serves as Han’s co-pilot on the Millennium Falcon for the rest of Han’s life.

Chewbacca stands eight feet tall with lengthy hair and only a bandolier on his back. The Wookiee bowcaster is his weapon of choice (a crossbow-shaped directed-energy weapon). Chewbacca exclusively speaks Shyriiwook (which sounds like animal growls), his native tongue; he understands English but is physically unable to speak it.


Entertainment Weekly called Chewbacca one of the “greatest sidekicks” in film history.

In Other Countries

Because his English name was close to “chewing tobacco,” which means “tabac à mâcher” or “tabac à chiquer” in French, his name was altered to “Chiktabba” and his nickname to “Chiko” in the original Star Wars picture in France. His name was “Chewbacca” in the previous episodes.

Chewbacca is given the name “Chewbecca” (Italian pronunciation: ) and the nickname “Chewbe” in the Italian-language versions (Italian pronunciation: ).

George Lucas was inspired to create Chewbacca as a “gentle, hairy, non-English-speaking co-pilot” by witnessing his own dog sitting up in the passenger seat of his automobile. Chewbacca’s name is supposed to be taken from the Russian word for dog, соaка (sobaka).

Peter Mayhew, who was chosen for his height of 7’3″ in his first six film appearances, played Chewbacca (2.2 m). Mayhew wore five different outfits, all fashioned of yak hair and mohair, for the three original films plus a Christmas special. The costume was fashioned of more comfortable materials in Revenge of the Sith (2005), however Mayhew’s filming only lasted a day. Mayhew’s blue eyes were the only thing visible in his costume, but his motions helped fans recognize him, and his coworkers claimed to be able to detect when a stand-in was taking his place. The part was also shared by Joonas Suotamo in The Force Awakens, and he went on to play the character in additional film appearances after Mayhew’s retirement.

Ben Burtt, the original movie’ sound designer, recorded walruses, lions, camels, bears, bunnies, tigers, and badgers in his home zoo to produce Chewbacca’s voice. For Chewbacca’s various utterances, the separate recordings were blended in various ratios. Tarik, a black bear from San Jose’s Happy Hollow Zoo, was one of the most important characters in the voice.
