    Though he spoke entirely in growls, snarls, and the occasional roar, Chewbacca's unwavering loyalty to Han Solo made him one of the most beloved characters in the franchise. Much more than just the hairy co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon, Chewie's dependability and trustworthiness helped the iconic
    Wookiee function as the series' ultimate "wing man."

    He was discovered by producer Charles H. Schneer while working as a hospital attendant in London, and cast in Ray Harryhausen's "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger.
