Chewbacca


Chewbacca goes along very unnoticed in this show.  All the attention goes primarily to his family and the 'stars' of the show.  In the beginning, Chewbacca and Han are on their way to Kashyyyk, but they run into some major trouble.  Here is the entire opening conversation between Chewbacca and Han, from the Star Wars Holiday Special transcript, which you can see in its entirety in the PLOT section.

       


1. INT. MILLENNIUM FALCON - COCKPIT

Han and Chewbacca are seated in the cockpit of the Falcon.

2. EXT. SPACE

The Falcon speeds across the screen. Two Star Destroyers
chase the Falcon and fire on her. Several of the laser
blasts connect with the shields.

3. INT. MILLENNIUM FALCON - COCKPIT

The Falcon rocks as lasers hit their shields.

HAN
That's it I'm turning back.

Chewie growls at Han in reply.

HAN
I know your family's waiting.

Chewie growls again.

HAN
I know it's an important day.

Chewie growls again at Han.

HAN
All right. We'll give it a try. I'll set
short coordinates - we won't jump far.

Han flips some switches on a control panel.

HAN
I'll get you back there in time, pal.
Trust me.

Chewie growls and leans over and pits his arm around Han
very affectionately.

4. EXT. SPACE

A Star Destroyer is firing on the falcon.

5. INT. MILLENNIUM FALCON - COCKPIT

HAN
Our only hope now, is to outrun that
Imperial garbage scow, tho'. I'm going
to lightspeed.

Chewie growls yet again. Han smiles.

HAN
That's the spirit! You'll be celebrating
Life Day before you know it! Standby,
here's where we say goodbye to our
unpleasant friends.
