How old is Chewbacca?

Post by shesheyan » Fri May 04, 2018 7:14 pm

I'm wondering how old is Chewy? In the Solo trailer he looks the same (or does he?). How long do they live on average?

Awesome! Somehow I never knew they could live so long. Also a good way to save on custom design and continuity from movie to movie ! :lol:

The Han Solo trailer comments on his age. I agree, I think Chewbacca will surivive the current movie trilogy and be brought back in movies for decades to come. There are alot of long lived races in the Star Wars galaxy. I guess to some of them the classic KoTor era was just a few generations ago? :o

A bit like the Elves in high fantasy sagas... ;)

Given the tech level of the Star Wars universe, it should be possible for even humans to live several centuries. The only true limiting factor is that the actors get older. ;)
