Young Chewbacca Fan Lives Star Wars Dream at Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The mighty Chewbacca shows off his cuddly side meeting a young fan during their visit to Batuu at Walt Disney World. This from the Disney Parks Blog….

As we continue our countdown to the August 29 official opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we wanted to share a special moment between a young Star Wars fan and her all-time favorite Star Wars character – Chewbacca.


Katie Grace, who turns 3 years old in September, and mom Lauri, landed on the planet Batuu in a galaxy far, far away as part of this week’s early cast member previews of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.  While living their Star Wars adventure in the land, Katie came face-to-face with Chewbacca and the two immediately exchanged galactic hugs and even rubbed noses.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida officially opens on August 29th.
