Fact #1 – Chewbacca’s look was inspired by Lucas’s pet.

It seems that Chewbacca’s appearance was based on Lucas’s Alaskan malamute called Indiana. Lucas said that Indiana was his loyal co-pilot during car rides and he mentioned an anecdote about people thinking Indiana was actually a human sitting in the passenger seat. Indiana was his best friend and a very important part of his life, so there are theories that Indiana Jones was also based on his dog, at least when it comes to the name.

Fact #2 – Chewbacca’s suit is made out of animal hairs and has a cooling system.

Chewbacca’s outfit has been made out of rabbit and yak hair for the original trilogy. This costume was quite warm, even too warm and it was impossible to wear it for a longer period of time, so the designers had to include a cooling system for Peter Mayhew, who portrayed the legendary creature in the original saga.

Fact #3 – Chewbacca was supposed to be a female lemur!

Chewbacca was originally based on lemur look, and Ralph McQuarrie drew the character in this manner and planned to make it look like a female, which was changed later on. McQuarrie was inspired by an illustration from John Schoenherr. If you find and take a look at his illustration, you can see that it even includes something similar to the Bowcaster, the legendary weapon of Wookies.

Fact #4 – Chewbacca is married and has kids.

If you heard or watched the Star Wars Holiday Special, which received a lot of harsh critics, even from Lucas himself, you could see that Chewie has a wife called Mallatobuck and a son called Lumpawaroo. During this special edition, Chewbacca goes to his home planet with Han and there we see his family. This special was also known for the first appearance of Bobba Fett.

Fact #5 – Darth Vader almost ended up as Chewbacca!

David Prowse, the man who played Darth Vader in the original trilogy, but was voiced over by James Earl Jones, was first offered the role of Chewbacca, because of his height. He initially refused this role by saying that he would rather be a villain who will be known for the eternity than a hero who would be forgotten after a short time. What he did not know is that his face will not be shown during the movies, so he may have regretted his decision a bit.


The Chewbacca extension is made for all the fans of Star Wars movies and Chewie. It contains some amazing HD Wallpapers for your tabs, as well as some other features which might come in handy for your everyday tasks. Therefore, make sure to install it and share it with your friends!
