In 2015, Joonas Suotamo worked with Peter Mayhew as they both played the famous wookie in the galaxy Chewbacca in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. By the time The Last Jedi came on to screen, Joonas has taken over the role. Now, he does something that very few Star Wars actors have done – played the past and future versions of their character. Suotamo suits up as we learn how Han and Chewie met in this Memorial Day weekend blockbuster “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. I was part of a roundtable to Joonas to know all that is Chewbacca
There’s something awfully familiar about this teaser – something that tickles the back of my mind; something that feels just so correct.
Between moments of nostalgic wistfulness and current action – and the appearance of a couple of old friends – the new teaser for Star Wars The Force Awakens is a perfect balance of everything we loved about the original trilogy. Check it out after the jump.

Oh, yeah! Star Wars is back, baby! Check it out after the jump.
