If you watch Glee, you’ll be glad to know that next Tuesday Chewbacca we’ll be on their special Christmas episode. According to the Huffington Post, the episode will in part play homage to the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special. According to Matthew Morrison…

“We called up George Lucas and he gave us Chewbacca. There is only one guy who can officially be Chewbaccca, and he lives in Northern California and they flew him in,” Morrison said. “We had Chewbacca for the day, and it was just great, and we were all taking pictures with him. This is a guy who has been doing it for 12 years.”

You can check out the article here which includes a short clip of Morrison talking about the Christmas episode on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
