Chewbacca to Make a Guest Appearance on Christmas Episode of GLEE

     December 6, 2011


Wait, what?! Yes, folks, in a move that would certainly have Han Solo screaming, “Chewie, get us outta here!” THR is reporting that everyone’s favorite walking carpet, Chewbacca, will make a guest appearance on Glee. Cast members like Chris Colfer, Harry Shum Jr. and Mark Salling have all tweeted their own photos with the Wookiee, but how will the character fit into the musical series? Apparently there’s a Christmas special within the episode that throws back to both the strange Star Wars holiday special from decades ago and the Judy Garland Christmas Special as well. However, THR doesn’t note whether film franchise star Peter Mayhew actually suited up for the episode. One thing’s for sure, Chewbacca will not be belting out any tunes on the series, but the episode, airing Tuesday, December 13th at 8/7c will feature at least six holiday musical numbers.
