Review | Star Wars: Chewbacca [2015] Gerry Duggan | Phil Noto

Chewbacca helps Zarro who wants her father freed from being a slave from a loan shark as Imperials arrive on the planet to take their natural resources. Zarro allows herself to be captured again so she can allow Chewbacca to track and rescue her people. The loan shark set off a trap while Chewbacca was attempting to escape with his prisoners. Chewbacca gets everyone out of the cave in then takes Zarro to the spaceport to get some equipment as the loan shark calls on his Imperials for help. Both Chewbacca and Zarro sneak into a spaceport to deliver explosives however they run into Imperials. Chewbacca manages to take them down as Zarro plants a bomb on the loan shark's transport. They are soon captured by Imperials and taken to be interrogated on the same ship where the loan shark's transport docked in. Both Chewbacca and Zarro free themselves and meet with the Imperial Commander. They tell the Imperial Commander the loan shark is a Rebel spy who planted a bomb. The bomb goes off and the loan shark gets the blame as Chewbacca and Zarro escape on a Tie Fighter back to the planet. We discover why Chewbacca did not wear the metal given to him during the ending of A New Hope because it clashed with his warrior vibe. Chewbacca heads back to his home planet revealing to a child wookie how his father sacrificed himself for the Rebellion. A great ending and story for a character who hounds like a wolf.
