That Time Chewbacca Joined a Texas Police Department
Solo: A Star War Story is out in theaters in less than 20 days! The movie sure had a lot of controversy surrounding it! The casting of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo caused an uproar with fans and even worried the studio so much that they had to hire an acting coach for the guy! Then, halfway through production, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired over creative differences which then brought on Ron Howard as director. We were months away before we even found out the name of the movie! So, to say that it's been smooth sailing as a fan for this movie would be entirely false.
Well, with the movie coming out in just a few days, I wanted to create something for our website, like a video, that would probably have involved Buzz dressed as Chewbacca or something. And as I was doing some research I came across this amazing video from the Fort Worth Police Department. It's from back in November which was great timing because everyone was anticipating Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In the video, Chewbacca is a rookie, well, Wookie, for the Fort Worth PD and undergoes training. The Fort Worth Police Department actually have other videos that feature Star Wars characters but this one just made my day!
You can see Chewbacca next in Solo: A Star Wars Story which is out on May 25th where Chewie will finally get his own theme!
