chewie Visits

Despite the fact that he is named for another movie character, Capt Jack Sparrow, the Schnauzer kid bears a strong resemblance to Chewbacca at the moment. 

Chewbacca (actor Peter Mayhew) himself wore a costume of mixed yak hair and mohair, and had a voice invented by sound designer, Ben Burt. 

Jack yaps, but the original Chewbacca had a voice created from the sound recordings of walrus, lion, camel, bear, rabbit, tiger and badger vocalizations. There is something you can add to the conversation over morning coffee!
