Harrison Ford fights with Chewbacca on Jimmy Kimmel -- PHOTO, VIDEO


Image Credit: Randy Holmes/ABC

Tonight Harrison Ford stops by Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where the ABC late night host reunites Han Solo with his old Millennium Falcon co-pilot Chewbacca. Sources are keeping quiet on the contents of the cold open skit which brings together Ford with his tall furry Star Wars co-star, but Geeks of a Certain Age should definitely watch. Need more convincing? The episode is guest directed by Jon Favreau. Here’s our exclusive photo, and we’ll update tomorrow morning with any available video from the show:

UPDATE: Video added below! “I’m done with that Star Wars crap!”

(And since I know somebody will ask: No, Chewy is not played here by Peter Mayhew.)

    This is awesome!

    • wsugar

      Best acting by Ford in years, it must have always been the wookie that made him look like he could act.

      • ERNIE

        I find it hard to believe HF would send himself up like this. He’s a notorious grump when it comes to Star Wars. Great going!

      • Shellibelli

        just goes to show he can be funny – he must like Kimmel because this is not the first time HF did something for him – HF was in IM F*&^%ing Ben Affleck video too.

      • Sue1

        Ford had proven repeatedly on many talk shows that he is quite funny, and his grumpy Star Wars days ended years ago.

        I would give anything short of my children to see another Star Wars. Make it with the original cast and have it set 30 years in the future. Introduce Mara Jade and the Solo twins and continue on with a new trilogy.

        Now, since I’m willing to give up a body part, I don’t want Lucas to write or direct.

        I would love to see Kevin Smith write it and Steven Spielburg direct it.

        Who’s with me?

  • googie

    So fun!

  • Greg “Cat” Springer

    Um…looks like a cheap Wookiee costume. *Not* Chewbacca.

    • Yoda


      • Mike

        LOL nice

      • Dream Out Loud

        It’s been over 30 years. Han doesn’t look the same. So why should Chewy? They both look better than Leia.

    • Donknottz

      Thats what I was thinking the whole time. What a cheap imitation. The teeth are all messed up. Looked crappy as the writing for that skit.

    • Barry Monster

      That broke a$$ costume made it even funnier.

  • Kristina

    It kind of looks like Chewy, but more like his meth-addicted cousin, Morty.


    It’s probably the Chewbacca from the street near Jimmy’s studio

    • Roy Munson

      of course it is. That’s kid is such a stoner! The geeks will be so mad!

  • Chelsea

    Chewy, have you had work done??

  • LadyC

    Got my DVR set!

  • NoRez

    Actually, it looks like Lumpy, all growed up.

    • theBigE

      Exactly what I thought! It was Lumpy, not Chewy! Star Wars Holiday rules!

      • technically speaking

        Technically speaking, Chewy has died (pushing up my glasses, sipping Nesquick Chocolate milk as I type)

  • Matthew Vickery

    This is clearly Chewbaccas retarded twin brother Chewbocca

  • Mike

    Isn’t he on tomorrow, not tonight?

  • Idviceroy

    Looks like fun, but it doesn’t look like Chewie. Kinda like when they ran out of money on Planet of the Apes sequels and slapped ill fitting masks on the extras.

  • Wickeddoll

    Way shorter than Mayhew.

  • chad

    I’m sick of you ageist, superficial queens hating on poor Chewbacca. No wonder we have so many Wookies resorting to Botox and disfiguring plastic surgery in this country. And that’s to say nothing of the terrible body image problem on Kashyyyk. I for one am proud of Chewie for aging naturally.

    • lostidol

      Love this comment. As an aside, why do you think the natives of Kashyyyk stopped at only 3 Ys? Would 2 have changed it’s meaning or pronunciation? :)

    • Rock Golf

      It’s not Chewbacca’s face that offends me. It’s the full frontal nudity.

      • Naja haje


      • Chelsea

        I don’t know if you’ve seen the documentary that’s on the extras of the Trilogy dvds, but that was actually a legit issue for studio execs during the making of the first Star Wars, lol

  • Wompa1

    He should have re-united Harrison/Han with Greedo so we can finally put to rest who shot first.

  • Vivian

    Chad, You are a loser.

    • Wickeddoll

      I thought Chad was hilarious.

    • ERNIE


    • Ellen

      Vivian, you do realize that Chad was joking, right? You need to get a sense of humor.

    • Bosco

      Wow, relax Vivian- did a Wookie break your heart or something?

    • Clete

      I’ll bet your a load of laughs at the office Christmas party.
