'Star Wars' Chewbacca to Guest Star On 'Glee'

That’s right everyone’s favorite wookie is joining the Glee cast for the annual holiday episode!

For those unaware, Chewbacca is the hairy space creature from the classic George Lucas film, Star Wars.

Cast member, Matthew Morrison confirmed this on Jimmy Kimmel Live saying, “We called up George Lucas and he gave us Chewbacca. There is only one guy who can officially be Chewbacca, and he lives in Northern California and they flew him in.”

“We had Chewbacca for the day, and it was just great, and we were all taking pictures with him,” added the 33-year-old actor.

According to Morrison, the holiday show will be an episode-within-an episode… huh?

Morrison explained, “We’re doing a Christmas special within the episode of Glee,” Morrison explained. “It’s a throwback and a tribute to the Star Wars holiday special and the Judy Garland Christmas special.”

Why do we need Chewbacca, we already have Jane Lynch. (Sorry I know, uncalled for)
