Chewbacca (nicknamed Chewie) is a Wookiee and the close friend of fellow pilot and smuggler Han Solo, serving as his co-pilot on the Millennium Falcon. Originally, Chewbacca and his fellow Wookiees battled in the Clone War with Chewbacca and a fellow Wookiee saving Yoda and helping him escape being murdered along with other Jedi when Palpatine executes Order 66. Like most Wookiees, Chewbacca speaks in sounds reminiscent of bears but is understood clearly by Han Solo. Chewbacca and Han become allies of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, helping them in their battle to bring down the Empire once and for all.
