I sort of figured that any movie starring Han Solo will also star, to some extent, is fucking Ride or Die Hairy Breh. Just sort of figured that. Assumed it. And apparently I wasn’t assuming-figuring-dreaming too wildly, because Disney Czar Bob Iger confirmed my assumption-figuring-dream.
We live in a time when Phil Noto is drawing a Chewbacca mini-series. An absurd time. An unbelievable time. A glorious time.
With Age of Ultron now passed us, it’s straight-up onto Caff-Pow’s Overbearing Force Awakens coverage here at OL.
I thought we had confirmed this shit like last week, but alas — no. I mean I’m not saying I’m jumping on the news bandwagon today but…that’s exactly what I’m doing.
Like, did we not expect Chewbacca back in the Star Wars: Greatest Hits Edition fold? I mean, c’mon. However I do suppose that the news which pretty much confirms Peter Mayhew’s return is radical in another manner. That manner? That they’re using the original actor. Pretty swell. Remember the seventy shades of bullshit that struck when Lucas didn’t use Prowse for Episode III?
It’s fine. Give in. I won’t tell anyone. Really.
Harrison Ford ripped into Chewbacca last night on the Jimmy Kimmel show. It wasn’t the most humorous skit I’ve ever seen, but it was nice to see Ford actually acknowledging his Solo roots. Earring still needs to go.
A good friend and Omegalyte with the nom de existence Charlie passed this video to me. It’s none other than Chewbacca and an Ewok rocking the fuck out to Welcome to the Jungle by GnR at Star Wars Disney Wowiekazowie Day or whatever. More proof that as our culture implodes in on itself, we’re all in for a fucking treat.
Hit the jump for the video.
