Bob Iger confirmed that Chewbacca will be in the 2018 Han Solo: A Star Wars Story film. This isn’t shocking at all, as of course Chewie would be by Han’s side, but it’s cool to hear it officially. Iger also confirmed that this is a origin story for Han and Chewie:
“We have others in the works, including one, which is an origin story about Han Solo and Chewie,” he continued. “And that’ll come after ‘Star Wars 8’ in 2018. And then there’ll be possibly be more thereafter.”
Han Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to hit theaters in 2018.
