Chewbacca ( choo-BAH-kə), nicknamed "Chewie", is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He is a Wookiee, a tall, hirsute, bipedal, intelligent species originating from the fictional planet of Kashyyyk. Chewbacca is the loyal friend and first mate of Han Solo, and serves as co-pilot on Solo's spaceship, the Millennium Falcon; together they help the Rebel Alliance defeat the Galactic Empire and restore freedom to tát the galaxy.[1]

In the original trilogy, Chewbacca is portrayed by Peter Mayhew. Mayhew shares the role with his body toàn thân double, Joonas Suotamo, in the first episode of the sequel trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Suotamo took over the role in the next episode, The Last Jedi,[2] and reprised it in the anthology film Solo: A Star Wars Story and the final sequel trilogy film, The Rise of Skywalker. The character has also appeared in numerous works within the Expanded Universe, consisting of television series, books, comics, and đoạn Clip games.


Chewbacca, a 200-year-old Wookiee, becomes a young Han Solo's companion after they both escape Imperial captivity on Mimban. After a series of adventures on Vandor and Kessel, Chewbacca embarks on the smuggling trade, serving as Han's co-pilot on the Millennium Falcon for the rest of Han's life.[1]

Standing 8 feet (2.4 m) tall, Chewbacca is covered with long hair and wears only a bandolier. His weapon of choice is the Wookiee bowcaster (a crossbow-shaped directed-energy weapon).[3] Chewbacca speaks only in his native language, Shyriiwook (which sounds lượt thích animal sound growls); he is able to tát understand English, but is physically unable to tát speak it. Han Solo, likewise, also understands Shyriiwook perfectly.

Chewbacca was named one of the "greatest sidekicks" in film history by Entertainment Weekly.[4]

In other countries

In France, in the original Star Wars film, his name was changed to tát "Chiktabba" and his nickname to tát "Chiko",[5] because the English name was similar to tát "chewing tobacco", which in French is "tabac à mâcher" or "tabac à chiquer", similar to tát "Chiquetabac". In the other films, his name was "Chewbacca".

In the Italian-language editions, Chewbacca is named "Chewbecca" (Italian pronunciation: [tʃuˈbɛkka/tʃuˈbekka]) and is nicknamed "Chewbe" (Italian pronunciation: [ˈtʃuːbe]).[6]


Chewbacca's creation as a "gentle, hairy, non-English-speaking co-pilot" was inspired by George Lucas seeing his own dog sitting up on the passenger seat of his siêu xe.[7] It is said that Chewbacca's name is derived from собака (sobaka), the Russian word for dog.[8]

In his first six screen appearances, Chewbacca was played by Peter Mayhew, who was chosen for his height of 7'3" (2.2 m).[9] Five similar costumes were created for Mayhew: in the three original films and a holiday special, the suits were made of yak hair and mohair. In Revenge of the Sith (2005), the suit was made of more comfortable materials, though Mayhew's filming only lasted a day. Only Mayhew's xanh xao eyes could be seen in his costume, but fans easily recognize him by his gestures, and his co-workers claimed the ability to tát tell when a stand-in was taking his place.[10] For The Force Awakens, the role was also shared by Joonas Suotamo, who subsequently portrayed the character in later screen appearances after Mayhew's retirement.

Chewbacca's voice was created by the original films' sound designer, Ben Burtt, from recordings of walruses, lions, camels, bears, rabbits, tigers, and badgers in Burtt's personal menagerie.[10] The individual recordings were mixed at different ratios for Chewbacca's different utterances. One of the most prominent elements in the voice was a Black bear named Tarik, from Happy Hollow Zoo in San Jose, California.[11]

The original costume was created by Stuart Freeborn and his wife Kay Freeborn, who hand-knitted the torso section. During preproduction of The Force Awakens, Creature Effects Supervisor Neal Scanlan commented that the original suit was far more sophisticated kêu ca they had originally realized, leading him to tát entirely scrap their first attempt at making the new suit, go back and study Freeborn's work in order to tát better appreciate how it worked, and attempt to tát emulate it.[12]
