#DisneyKids: First Chewbacca Meet and Greet

Meeting a Rebel hero like Chewbacca is an exciting experience for any Star Wars fan – he’s a legend! He’s also a towering, furry warrior, so he can certainly look a little intimidating. But if you’ve seen the films you know he’s really a gentle giant. We recently followed along as some young fans encountered the friendly Wookie for the first time at Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It was so much fun to see the padawans interact with Chewie – some of them even seemed to communicate with him in his native language.

Check out this video to see the kids describe this unique experience.


  • They are adorable!

  • Love how this turned out! My daughters are in it. I was hoping they would have used my daughter’s joke. (Have you ever had a Wookie cookie??? It’s Chewie!) So much fun though!
