"Fuel, ammo, and Wookiee Cookies for Chewie."
- ―A Resistance worker and Han Solo discuss supplies for the Millennium Falcon
Wookiee Cookies were a type of flat, round Wookiee food that was also edible by other species in the galaxy, including humans and Sullustans. The cookies were favored by the Wookiee Chewbacca, who carried some aboard the starship Millennium Falcon during the war between the First Order and the Resistance.
Description[edit | edit source]
Wookiee Cookies were a flat, round, and yellow-colored food with brown particles on them. Usually stored in jars, the cookies could be eaten by humans and Sullustans in addition to their namesake, Wookiees.
History[edit | edit source]
Battle of Endor[edit | edit source]
Wookiee Cookies were favored by the human Rebel Alliance general Lando Calrissian and his Sullustan co-pilot, Nien Nunb, when they fought against the Galactic Empire during the Battle of Endor in the year 4 ABY. The two were eating the cookies aboard the Millennium Falcon—the freighter belonging to the smuggler-turned-rebel Han Solo—while they were on their way to attack the Death Star's main reactor. Upon realizing that the battle station's deflector shield was still up, Calrissian broke off the attack, and their cookies were left floating in space.
Rathtar bait[edit | edit source]
Around thirty years later, Solo and his Wookiee partner, Chewbacca, traveled to the planet Twon Ketee in order to capture full-grown rathtars for King Prana. After successfully capturing one, Chewbacca teased the ravenous beast with a jar of Wookiee Cookies, and the creature was punished with an electric shock as it attempted to take the jar using its tentacle.
Battle of Starkiller Base[edit | edit source]

- ―Han Solo and Leia Organa prepare the Millennium Falcon
Not long after, Han Solo and Chewbacca were reunited with General Leia Organa, leader of the Resistance and Solo's estranged wife, and together they went to the Resistance base on D'Qar. As the Millennium Falcon was preparing to take off for the Resistance's assault on the First Order's Starkiller Base, Solo asked Organa and the ex-stormtrooper Finn, along with the droids C-3PO and BB-8, to find some Wookiee Cookies for Chewbacca.
They managed to find some within the base's supply stores and loaded them onto the starship. During the battle, Chewbacca left behind a trail of Wookiee Cookies for Finn and the Force-sensitive scavenger Rey that led them to the Millennium Falcon following their duel with the dark warrior Kylo Ren.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- "We have one mission where, jokingly, we have to get Wookiee Cookies for Chewie and, unbelievably, we managed to get Harrison Ford to say 'Wookiee Cookies.' That's still one of the highlights of Graham's [Goring] career and mine, that we managed to get Harrison Ford to say that."
- ―Jamie Eden, game director for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Wookiee Cookies first appeared in the 2016 non-canonical video game LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The cookies were originally introduced as "Wookiee-ookiees" in the 1978 television feature The Star Wars Holiday Special, which is now considered part of the Star Wars Legends continuity.
Wookiee-ookiees have since inspired Star Wars-themed recipes for real-life Wookiee cookies, which were first featured in The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookiee Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes, published in 1998.
