That umbrella though, looool.

And his on-screen BFF Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo) tells us how it ~really~ is on set — saying that Chewbacca is "pretty tough on the crew."

I guess they didn't offer Porg meat on the taco truck?!

But — not to make you scream with joy or anything — this shot of Chewbacca holding a WEE PUPPER reminds us all just how big hearted Chewbacca is, particularly when it comes to the lil' guys.
