12. Chewbacca – Solo: A Star Wars Story

So before anyone starts to panic if you haven’t seen Solo: A Star Wars Story it’s okay, this part of the list is spoiler free.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is still not out on DVD or Blu-Ray yet, at least not at the time of writing anyway, so to be fair to those who choose to wait until the movie is out on DVD or Blu-Ray rather than see it in theaters. I won’t be going into the details of the scene that introduces Chewbacca only why the introduction has made the list.

Ok, so here goes.

Chewbacca is awesome. I don’t think there are many among us who would disagree with that statement. We all love Chewbacca.

However, we don’t actually know a lot about Chewbacca. His backstory is relatively unknown; if you’re a Star Wars fan who has only seen the movies, then Chewbacca isn’t much more than Han’s pal, except for that small part in Star Wars Episode III – Return of the Sith we know pretty much nothing about him prior to the original trilogy.

We have been crying out for more Chewbacca and more importantly how the dynamic duo came together. And we go that in Solo: A Star Wars Story. This is why his initial introduction, which it is if you view it from a timeline perspective, is so special. We are finally getting some of the answers we have been looking for.

Now I am not saying we got every answer that we sought for. But we did get a lot of them, and I’ll take some over none. That is why his intro has made the list at No. 12.
