1
00:00:05,547 --> 00:00:09,008
This movie's a chance to understand
Chewie as a unique individual,

2
00:00:09,092 --> 00:00:12,470
who chooses Han Solo,
as Han chooses Chewie.

3
00:00:13,472 --> 00:00:16,516
Never in my mind
was Chewie subservient to Han.

4
00:00:16,600 --> 00:00:17,934
It's always been a partnership.

5
00:00:18,018 --> 00:00:21,646
And Han is really Chewie's sidekick,
as much as Chewie is Han's.

6
00:00:21,730 --> 00:00:24,023
We couldn't have done this
maybe, like, one at a time?

7
00:00:24,107 --> 00:00:25,566
When I first started shooting,

8
00:00:25,651 --> 00:00:27,152
they told me it was a love story

9
00:00:27,236 --> 00:00:29,238
between two people who don't yet know

10
00:00:29,321 --> 00:00:31,156
they are going to end up
with each other.

11
00:00:31,240 --> 00:00:33,367
And, of course,
we're talking about Han and Chewie.

12
00:00:36,495 --> 00:00:38,872
Their relationship
is really fun to watch.

13
00:00:38,956 --> 00:00:42,292
They have a kind of unspoken closeness.

14
00:00:43,502 --> 00:00:46,171
And Joonas was so good
at playing Chewie.

15
00:00:46,630 --> 00:00:50,425
There's such a craft of how to move,
how to communicate,

16
00:00:50,509 --> 00:00:51,801
how to perform in the suit,

17
00:00:51,885 --> 00:00:55,471
and he has such a mastery
over how to do that with Chewie.

18
00:00:55,556 --> 00:00:57,099
It was really impressive.

19
00:00:58,308 --> 00:00:59,517
No, yeah, whatever.

20
00:00:59,601 --> 00:01:03,896
What I love about the Han Solo-Chewbacca
relationship in this movie

21
00:01:03,981 --> 00:01:06,692
is that later in life,
they have such a great shorthand.

22
00:01:06,775 --> 00:01:08,943
You know, they barely
have to communicate.

23
00:01:09,027 --> 00:01:10,945
Here, they don't really understand
each other very much at all.

24
00:01:17,744 --> 00:01:22,244
He speaks Shyriiwook...
Uh, or Shryriiyook? Shryiiwook?

25
00:01:22,791 --> 00:01:24,083
Okay, well, whatever.

26
00:01:24,167 --> 00:01:27,795
There's an interesting process where
Chewbacca says kind of the lines,

27
00:01:27,879 --> 00:01:29,422
and then you hear it and respond to it.

28
00:01:29,506 --> 00:01:31,591
We had written into
the first draft of the script

29
00:01:31,675 --> 00:01:33,218
every one of Chewie's lines.

30
00:01:33,302 --> 00:01:34,678
No, I'm telling ya,

31
00:01:34,761 --> 00:01:35,762
it's gonna be great.

32
00:01:35,846 --> 00:01:39,474
We wanted Alden to know
what was being said to him,

33
00:01:39,558 --> 00:01:41,184
so he would know what to play,

34
00:01:41,268 --> 00:01:43,937
regardless of what he interpreted
from the moan.

35
00:01:44,021 --> 00:01:45,439
So what's your name, anyway?

36
00:01:49,151 --> 00:01:51,403
All right, well,
you're gonna need a nickname,

37
00:01:51,486 --> 00:01:53,029
'cause I ain't saying that every time.

38
00:02:00,954 --> 00:02:04,040
He's introduced as a man-eating beast
with this massive roar.

39
00:02:05,667 --> 00:02:06,709
Hey! Hey.

40
00:02:06,793 --> 00:02:09,921
Which, of course, has to sound
like Chewbacca, but that doesn't exist.

41
00:02:11,506 --> 00:02:13,674
The main recording of Chewbacca
is a bear

42
00:02:13,759 --> 00:02:15,886
that Ben Burtt, the original
sound designer, recorded

43
00:02:15,969 --> 00:02:17,011
many, many years ago.

44
00:02:17,095 --> 00:02:19,847
But because the original bear
only made so many sounds,

45
00:02:19,931 --> 00:02:21,849
Chewbacca's vocabulary
has always been a little bit limited.

46
00:02:21,933 --> 00:02:25,269
So, we spent an afternoon recording
this massive grizzly bear

47
00:02:25,354 --> 00:02:26,855
who was just hungry all the time,

48
00:02:26,938 --> 00:02:29,982
and if you would simply show him food,
he got very excited,

49
00:02:30,067 --> 00:02:32,027
and if you didn't give him the food
right away, he would let you know.

50
00:02:32,527 --> 00:02:36,405
So we were able to get a really quite
extensive palette of new bear vocals,

51
00:02:36,490 --> 00:02:38,450
and we also recorded
quite a few other animals.

52
00:02:39,701 --> 00:02:41,744
Deep, guttural pieces
that were used occasionally

53
00:02:41,828 --> 00:02:43,120
in the giant roar for Chewbacca. ..

54
00:02:45,123 --> 00:02:47,750
...that were not in the exact range
as Chewbacca,

55
00:02:47,834 --> 00:02:49,210
but with a little bit of manipulation,

56
00:02:49,294 --> 00:02:51,587
I was able to create a new set
of Chewbacca sounds.

57
00:02:51,672 --> 00:02:53,423
Hey! Okay.

58
00:02:53,507 --> 00:02:54,799
Take it easy.

59
00:02:54,883 --> 00:02:56,092
We're on the same side.

60
00:02:56,176 --> 00:02:58,928
We really wanted to give you
the opposite of what you expect,

61
00:02:59,012 --> 00:03:02,765
and there was no purer example
than how Han and Chewie met.

62
00:03:02,849 --> 00:03:05,393
It's almost like an old-fashioned
romantic comedy.

63
00:03:05,477 --> 00:03:07,770
Of course, Spencer Tracy
and Katharine Hepburn

64
00:03:07,854 --> 00:03:10,022
are going to start the movie
not in love.

65
00:03:10,399 --> 00:03:13,276
They're gonna start the movie
at each other's throats.

66
00:03:20,367 --> 00:03:22,369
So, we're just framing up

67
00:03:22,452 --> 00:03:23,786
and getting a clean pass
at the same time.

68
00:03:23,870 --> 00:03:26,038
Set up the frame.
All right, there we go.

69
00:03:26,498 --> 00:03:29,167
The idea of throwing mud
all over the Chewbacca suit

70
00:03:29,251 --> 00:03:30,835
was somewhat daunting for all of us

71
00:03:30,919 --> 00:03:35,173
because the time and energy that goes
into creating a Wookiee suit is immense.

72
00:03:35,924 --> 00:03:37,342
Team Chewie is basically

73
00:03:37,426 --> 00:03:39,386
the wonderful people
who take care of Chewie.

74
00:03:39,469 --> 00:03:42,180
We've got Maria, Fiona, Becky.

75
00:03:42,264 --> 00:03:45,100
They made four new Wookiee suits
for this film,

76
00:03:45,183 --> 00:03:49,683
with individual hairs knotted into
the suit, so it's a very long task.

77
00:03:51,398 --> 00:03:54,067
It takes hours to style the suit.

78
00:03:54,151 --> 00:03:56,194
You need to constantly be making sure

79
00:03:56,278 --> 00:04:00,031
that the hair underneath the bandolier
won't get flattened out.

80
00:04:00,115 --> 00:04:01,241
It's a lot of effort.

81
00:04:01,324 --> 00:04:03,743
The most challenging
was definitely the mud pit.

82
00:04:04,453 --> 00:04:07,038
We've never done anything
like this with Chewbacca before.

83
00:04:07,122 --> 00:04:08,957
He's always been clean, dry.

84
00:04:09,040 --> 00:04:11,250
We did some tests
with some different types of mud.

85
00:04:11,334 --> 00:04:13,377
We brought some Dead Sea mud packs in

86
00:04:13,462 --> 00:04:15,338
and started playing around
with the suits,

87
00:04:15,422 --> 00:04:18,174
and just putting some of that in
and putting some dreadlocks in.

88
00:04:18,258 --> 00:04:19,342
And it was just caked,

89
00:04:19,426 --> 00:04:21,886
and the whole thing weighed
probably six, seven times

90
00:04:21,970 --> 00:04:24,180
what it normally would
as a dry Chewbacca suit.

91
00:04:24,765 --> 00:04:28,477
Chewie's legs would be covered
in this thick mud,

92
00:04:28,560 --> 00:04:31,312
so we had to go to the Wookiee wash
to get off that mud.

93
00:04:32,689 --> 00:04:36,192
Having something that heavy
and having to be in weird positions,

94
00:04:36,276 --> 00:04:37,443
that was difficult.

95
00:04:37,527 --> 00:04:40,029
I was so happy
when we got through that scene.

96
00:04:47,746 --> 00:04:50,540
In this film, I wanted to see
the strength of the Wookiee,

97
00:04:50,624 --> 00:04:53,960
what he would do if he's, like,
in full-on display of his power.

98
00:04:54,044 --> 00:04:57,505
We discover he's a pretty handy beast.

99
00:05:01,760 --> 00:05:04,262
My sports background
has definitely helped me

100
00:05:04,346 --> 00:05:07,265
to do this very physical thing
of playing Chewie.

101
00:05:07,349 --> 00:05:11,186
We started two or three months
before, doing stunt training.

102
00:05:11,770 --> 00:05:15,940
L really loved learning how to do
the rolls and different choreographies.

103
00:05:18,944 --> 00:05:20,737
It was like intense workouts.

104
00:05:22,364 --> 00:05:24,449
I mean, I was pretty buff back then.

105
00:05:26,076 --> 00:05:27,368
Oh...

106
00:05:31,414 --> 00:05:32,998
GRVSPO". It's like, "Strong as what?"

107
00:05:33,083 --> 00:05:36,711
And then we started thinking,
"Strong as an ox, strong as a bear."

108
00:05:36,795 --> 00:05:38,713
And then we took it
from those parameters

109
00:05:38,797 --> 00:05:40,423
and developed the action or move

110
00:05:40,507 --> 00:05:42,717
that later on, when you see it,
it's like, "Whoa."

111
00:05:43,468 --> 00:05:44,469
You don't want to mess with him.

112
00:05:50,517 --> 00:05:52,644
What I really appreciate
about Chewbacca

113
00:05:52,727 --> 00:05:55,688
is that he really does have
a philosophy. He's tough.

114
00:05:56,273 --> 00:05:59,442
He can be vicious,
but clearly there's a moral code.

115
00:05:59,526 --> 00:06:03,655
And you begin to see that there's
a nobility that Chewbacca represents

116
00:06:03,738 --> 00:06:05,406
that Han has to deal with...

117
00:06:05,490 --> 00:06:06,491
Chewie!

118
00:06:06,575 --> 00:06:08,660
...and often side with.

119
00:06:09,327 --> 00:06:10,661
Here, you might need this.

120
00:06:12,747 --> 00:06:15,040
So, you look out, back, nod...

121
00:06:15,125 --> 00:06:18,002
Everything about this job
is such a treat.

122
00:06:19,254 --> 00:06:22,632
We're in the most privileged position
to be able to work in Star Wars films.

123
00:06:24,509 --> 00:06:27,136
I can't wait to come back to work
the next day.

124
00:06:28,305 --> 00:06:29,848
"I'll be back for more.

125
00:06:29,931 --> 00:06:31,182
"See you tomorrow."
