When audiences next see Chewbacca in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the legendary Wookie will be mourning the loss of his decades-long best friend, Han Solo.
Writer and director Rian Johnson told EW, ?Chewie?s doing all right. It?s tough. It was obviously a big loss for him, but, you know, he?s Chewie. He?s resilient. He?s got broad Wookie shoulders, and he also has a new mission. He?s got Rey, and she?s someone that Han, to a certain extent, handed the keys to. So I think that helps."
