Info box picture[]

I think like Han's article, chewie could use with a crop of him from the trailer as his info box picture. Skywalker2255 (talk) 19:09, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

  • In all these cases, rather than jumping on the absolute first image available, it might be better to wait for more pictures to be released and then pick the most appropriate. 19:27, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
    • I agree about waiting. Plus, Chewbacca looks no different than in the rest of the films, so let's stick with a promotional image more suited for an infobox. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 19:31, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

Chewie might be a little different. It us a new costume Mayhew has on, I know that. But I get what you are saying. Skywalker2255 (talk) 20:02, April 23, 2015 (UTC)


guys read the legacy section...seriously come on none of this is true --Will.K (talk) 10:52, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

  • You haven't seen the Episode VII trailer? Or are you in denial? --LelalMekha (talk) 10:55, May 25, 2015 (UTC)
    • there is nothing in the trailer proving that Chewbacca has interacted with Leia, Threepio, Artoo, Luke or anyone other than Han, and the Galactic Empire is not confirmed to have a presence (only the First Order whose relation to the empire is not entirely known) ralok (talk) 12:40, May 25, 2015 (UTC)
    • I mean that bit --Will.K (talk) 22:18, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

Spoiler google preview[]

When I searched "Chewbacca" on google, the first thing that I saw was this page and how it's that "Chewbacca was". I know you have the "major spoiler alert" at the top of the page, but that didn't stop me from getting the plot spoiled. Way to ruin my Christmas. 06:05, December 26, 2015 (UTC)

Main quote[]

I was thinking that we should change the quote at the top of Chewbacca's page but I was stuck as to what it should be changed to, does anyone have any suggestions? --Lewisr (talk) 01:24, September 8, 2017 (UTC)

Life Debt?[]

This article and the one for Han solo both cite a 2015 visual guide to assert the life debt is still canon. I know this is discussed in one of the newer novels as well. I guess it could be canon, but it needs to be framed differently because Han didn't really "rescue" Chewie in Solo at all. According to the actual film, they are both captured, and they have to work together to escape. Han would owe Chewie a "life debt" just as much as Chewie would owe Han. 11:42, May 29, 2018 (UTC)


The Solo: A Star Wars Story Adaptation (TPB) can be used to trace Chewie's birthdate back to 206 BBY. (The Solo: A Star Wars Story Adaptation (TPB) comic refers to Chewbacca as 196 years old. The timeline provided in Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide places the events of the comic nine years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. As that film takes place in 19 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, the comic's events must take place in 10 BBY. Therefore, it can be deduced that Chewbacca was born in 206 BBY.) However, other sources such as Star Wars: Card Trader and Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary trace Chewie's birth to 200 BBY. So what should we trust? The newer source, or the one with more appearances? If anybody can offer their opinion, or cite any other sources giving a verdict on the matter, it would be extremely helpful. 2600:1700:1040:6E80:61B0:6EAD:1844:DAC7 16:16, June 18, 2019 (UTC)
