CHILLS.

And while we were all busy breaking down all the amazing details in the OMG-I-CAN'T-WAIT trailer, I bet you did not notice this one super cute thing in the poster: A CAT BUTT.

The cute AF detail was first noticed by io9's eagle-eyed Deputy Editor, Jill Pantozzi, FYI.

Now, to be clear, this isn't just a random cat photobomb (although, OF COURSE, a cat would photobomb) — this is in fact the butt of Carol Danvers' adorable pet Chewie.

And, yes, that's Chewie as in Chewbacca, which is who she's named after.

And Chewie isn't just any ol' cat, she is in fact a Flerken, as clarified by Polygon — basically, an alien creature that resembles a cat and lays eggs (CHILL, right? LOL).

Rocket Raccoon even tried to kill her once in the comic books!

Now, IDK if Chewie will go into full Flerken-mode in Captain Marvel, but at the very least it looks like we'll get to see her palling around with Carol and that's enough for me!

The only question left is, will she knock a glass of water off a table?!
