Chewbacca Surprised Star Tours Guests Searching For “SOLO” Riders

Chewbacca surprised Star Tours guests

This is so cool! Recently Chewbacca surprised Star Tours guests inside Hollywood Studios as he searched for a “SOLO” rider. Chewy needs someone to join him as a co-pilot on a special adventure aboard a Starspeeder 1000.

Speaking of Star Wars and Hollywood Studios, did you hear the big news about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge? Last night Disney announced that the Disneyland Resort will be welcoming guests to Galaxy’s Edge in Summer 2019. Walt Disney World will follow with a late Fall 2019 debut.

Watch the video below as guests are asked for a special password and then meet up with an out-of-this-world crew!

This, of course, was a special one-time occurrence but Hollywood Studios guests can still meet Chewbacca at the Rebel Base in Star Wars Launch Bay.

In “Solo: A Star Wars Story“, Chewie has fallen on hard times during the age of the expanding Empire. When fate has Han and Chewbacca cross paths, Chewbacca embarks on a long, loyal and trusting friendship that he could have never expected. Be sure to catch “Solo: A Star Wars Story” when it opens in U.S. theaters on May 25, 2018.
