SyFy Wire provides us with an early look at the featurette titled “Team Chewie” that will be part of the bonus content included on the upcoming Blu-ray release for director Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story. In the video embedded below, we hear from Skywalker Sound’s Tim Nielsen as he talks about designing new “vocabulary” spoken by the mighty Chewbacca throughout the standalone film.
Solo is set to land on Blu-ray September 25 here in the US and one day sooner in the UK. For those fans who want their Solo home media fix a little bit sooner, the film lands on digital HD September 14 in the US and September 17 in the UK.
To flesh out Chewbacca in Solo: A Star Wars Story, the Lucasfilm team had to add new dimensions to every part of him, including his famous voice. In this exclusive clip from the upcoming Blu-ray, Skywalker Sound’s Tim Nielsen explains how his team went looking for new sounds to add to Chewie’s vocabulary.
