Candace Payne, aka “Chewbacca Mom”, set internet records a few weeks ago when she captured the hearts of millions with her genuine, infectious laughter while trying on a Chewbacca mask.
With her instantaneous celebrity status, she spent the next week crossing the country being interviewed by talk shows and national morning shows. Her whirlwind week was topped off with a visit to the place where Star Wars lives and the Force is strong – in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.
Candace, a die-hard Star Wars fan, and her family spent the weekend living their Star Wars dreams – encountering Jawas, evading Stormtroopers, and most importantly – coming face to face with Chewbacca at Star Wars Launch Bay.
Candace is scheduled to meet the original Chewbacca from the Star Wars movies, Peter Mayhew, at Fan Expo Dallas this weekend. The expo is a big comic convention held at the Dallas Convention Center. For $20, fans can take a selfie with Chewbacca Mom herself and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.
