Chewbacca had excellent performances in the original Star Wars trilogy, but he has done little since then.

George Lucas was nice enough to give Chewbacca cameos in the Revenge of the Sith and the Star Tours safety video, but those roles are beneath an actor of such high caliber.

And yesterday Chewbacca hit a new low: he made an appearance in Sony's E3 Media and Business Summit press conference to help promote the upcoming, limited edition Star Wars PlayStation Portable, which has a picture of Darth Vader, not Chewbacca, on it.

Surely Sony would have liked to have Darth Vader promote a PSP with a picture of Darth Vader on it, but Darth Vader still has a career and therefore insists on being paid lots of money. Chewbacca has trouble finding work, so he is always available and can be paid little.

It is depressing to see a great talent like Chewbacca being forced to accept demeaning jobs. What did Chewbacca do to get himself in this position?

I don't buy it. Jabba the Hutt doesn't know English and he still gets work.

Chewie is a dirty hippie and should get a haircut/shave.
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

But Jabba gets subtitles. Chewy, doesn't even get subtitles. We have to rely on Han's half-assed interpretations.

And did anyone notice how Han treats Chewy like a pet? He pets him and scruffs his neck like he's a good lab that just retrieved a duck.

Your right, no respect.

Chewbacca is Hans's handmaiden. No Hans, no Chewbacca.

Chewbacca doesn't get subtitles because Chewbacca doesn't need subtitles. We can tell what Chewbacca means by his mannerisms.

Jabba the Hut needs subtitles because he is not as good an actor as Chewbacca. His (Jabba's) expressions alone are not enough for English speakers to understand what he is communicating.

Perhaps due to the fact that he is dead

Chewbacca needs a makeover, and possibly a stint in rehab. A name change wouldnt hurt either... Chew Biddy.

He's moved on in life. He now pitches for the Boston Red Sox.

I think Chewey was blacklisted after his disastrous run as a Gilette Spokesman.

The 1999 novel Vector Prime by R.A. Salvatore (the first in the New Jedi Order series) marks Chewbacca's final appearance in the Star Wars universe. Chewbacca sacrifices his own life to save that of Solo's son Anakin from a collision between the planet Sernpidal and one of its moons. Afterward, the other core Star Wars characters are emotionally crushed by the loss, and Solo sinks into alcoholism and depression.
i love that even Star Wars characters turn to alcohol when they are depressed make u feel slightly more superhero like... are they classed as Superhero's... i suppose the do have powers
