Chewbacca, nicknamed Chewie by his close friends, was a Wookiee warrior native to the planet Kashyyyk. Back home, Chewy was a military leader. He was captured during the Clone Wars by slave masters from Trandoshan, and imprisoned where he became acquainted with a fellow prisoner, Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano. Together, the planned and succeeded in an escape. Chewy returns to Kashyyyk to command the Wookiee military in the Battle of Kashyyyk alongside Jedi Master Yoda who commanded the Grand Army. During the battle, Yoda was ordered to be terminated by his own army, by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, because all Jedi were considered enemy to the Galactic Republic, marking the fall of the Jedi Order. The order was called Order 66, and Yoda escapes the order with the help of Chewy.


Years later, after the rise of the Galactic Empire, Chewy became a smuggler together with his best friend Han Solo on Han's iconic ship the Millennium Falcon, under the employment of Hutt gangster and crime boss, Jabba the Hutt. During one of their missions to smuggle Spice, Han made an executive decision to dump the shipment in fear of getting in trouble with the Galactic Empire. As a result, Jabba suffered a lot of losses and put out a bounty on the two of them. While on the run, they cross paths with key members of The Alliance - Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and their droid companions C-3PO and R2-D2.


Han and Chewy joined The Alliance and aided in the rescue of Princess Leia Organa, which initiated their journey of being part of The Rebellion. Although their plan was to return to princess to Yavin 4 and leave, they ended up helping The Rebellion fight in the Battle of Yavin, subsequently using the Millennium Falcon to help Luke Skywalker destroy the Death Star. After the Battle of Yavin, Chewy and Han would fight against the Empire in a number of other battles, including the Battle of Hoth. Post Hoth, Chewy, Han, and Leia seek refuge in Cloud City, where Han's old friend Lando Calrissian betrays him and turns them in to Darth Vader, resulting in Han being frozen in carbonite to be sent back to Jabba. Calrissian then helps Chewy and Leia escape, and together the three of them set course to Jabba's palace where Leia kills Jabba, and they succeed in rescuing Han.


After that ordeal, Chewy and Han assist The Alliance in the Battle of Endor, where Chewy played a momentous role in destroying the shield generator that would allow the Alliance Fleet to destroy the second Death Star, subsequently killing the Emperor who was on board the ship and wrecking havoc within the Empire.
