If there are any species in the Star Wars universe that could beat Baby Yoda as far as cuteness goes, it’s a Wookie. Yes, a baby Chewie would be about as adorable as it gets.
Chewbacca himself is quite a handsome fellow. He’s got a beautiful, lush mane that boasts many shades of brown that mix in with a little black, with sprinkles of gray here and there. He’s got gangly limbs and big hulking feet that look like a couple of hairy paws. He is very much dog-like in his appearance and just as loyal. A baby version in live-action would be scene-stealing.
A baby Wookie wouldn’t look all that much different than and adult one. The limbs would be shorter, and eyes much bigger. There’d likely be some baby fat on the face, which would obviously make it rounder. The thing that would make most fans’ hearts melt, would be his little baby Wookie roar. A baby Wookie roar would come out much like baby Simba trying to scare the hyenas, a little higher pitched and nowhere near as menacing.
A baby Wookie could prove to be useful to The Mandalorian. Wookies are extremely powerful creatures who can rip the limbs off of their enemies if they so please. Even a baby version would be much stronger than an adult human. If The Mandalorian was on a bounty where a baby Wookie was his target, and he got into a jam, seeing the “Baby Chewie” getting up and joining the fight would be very believable.
