To escape the Trandoshan moon where he and three Jedi younglings are held captive, Chewbacca suggests he build a transmitter from the prison ship's wreckage to call for help.
On Cloud City, Lando secretly arranges to have Leia and the others freed before they can be taken to Vader's ship. Once the cuffs are off, however, Chewbacca aggressively responds to Lando's betrayal.
FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
The Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk was part of the Republic, and the site of a showdown between Republic troops and invading Separatist droids in the final days of the Clone Wars.
The Wookiees joined Republic clone troopers and the Jedi in mounting a spirited defense of their homeworld, but the Battle of Kashyyyk was most notable because Supreme Chancellor Palpatine issued Order 66 during the fighting. The clones turned on their Jedi Generals, but Yoda sensed the threat and escaped execution.
THE DARK TIMES
Wookiees’ enormous strength made them useful laborers. The triumphant Empire subjected Kashyyyk to a brutal occupation, enslaving Wookiees and working them to death on planets such as Kessel, home to the infamous spice mines.
GALACTIC CIVIL WAR
The most famous Wookiee was Chewbacca, first mate of the Millennium Falcon and friend of the Corellian smuggler Han Solo. Chewie helped convince Han to intervene at the Battle of Yavin, spoiling Darth Vader’s defense of the Death Star, and fought bravely at the Battle of Endor, where he helped ensure a new birth of freedom for the galaxy.
Kashyyyk is the Wookiee homeworld, covered in dense forest. While Wookiees build their homes in the planet's trees, they are not a primitive species, and Kashyyyk architecture incorporates sophisticated technology. One of the last battles of the Clone Wars was fought here under the leadership of Yoda, with Wookiees and clones battling the Separatist droid army -- until the Emperor issued Order 66, commanding the clones to slaughter all Jedi. Yoda survived, however, with the help of natives Chewbacca and Tarfful, who used a hidden shuttle to evacuate the Jedi Master from the planet.
A legendary Wookiee warrior and Han Solo’s co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca was part of a core group of Rebels who restored freedom to the galaxy. Known for his short temper and accuracy with a bowcaster, Chewie also has a big heart -- and is unwavering in his loyalty to his friends.
A massive Wookiee general, Tarfful helped defend his native Kashyyyk during the Clone Wars. A distress signal brought Tarfful and his most trusted warriors rushing to Chewbacca's help against the hated Trandoshans on the hunting grounds of Wasskah. Later, Tarfful and Chewbacca fought side by side with General Yoda on the battlegrounds of Kashyyyk.
A rare example of a Wookiee in the Jedi Order, Gungi had a lively, inquisitive face whose wide smile was punctuated with a snaggletooth emerging from his lower jaw. Like many Wookiees, Gungi was temperamental and expressive -- and controlling his patience proved to be a real challenge. When Gungi was a Jedi youngling during the time of the Clone Wars, he needed to learn to slow down his impulsive ways in order to pass the ancient rite of passage ritual known as The Gathering.
Wullffwarro was a Wookiee warrior that once fought for the Old Republic, and later forced into slavery by the Empire at the spice mines of Kessel. But with the arrival of the Ghost crew, he and his fellow captives fought back against their captors. Wullffwarro was reunited with his son, Kitwarr, and left the dreaded planet.
Kitwarr was a young Wookiee captured by Imperials and forced to work in the spice mines of Kessel. After a daring rescue by the crew of the Ghost, he and his father, Wulffwarro, were set free.
