Chewbacca - Joonas Suamoto

December 8, 2017

Joonas Suatamo talks to The Cosmic Shed.

Chewbacca is, let's face it, the best character in all of Star Wars so he needs no introduction. Based, allegedly, on George Lucas's dog and played until recently by Peter Mayhew, everyone's favourite Wookie is about to appear once again on our screens in The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story

Ti and Andrew met him at For the Love of Sci-Fi in December 2017 and they also met Joonas Suamoto, the man who plays Chewbacca in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and the Han Solo film.


Ti, Joonas and Andrew.

Joonas tells us all about taking over the role from the legendary Peter Mayhew, what it's like on set with J J Abrams and Harrison Ford, and how exactly you go from Basketball player to film star.
