    This is correct. Wookies live hundreds of years. That's why a life debts are a big thing for them because in the end it is not that long for them.

    Maybe Chewie deserves some romance and perhaps could start a family. Would be a fine Disney finale. Even better if a shadowy figure from the Dark side appeared over the baby in the last scene.

    He has a son - Lumpawaroo

    And a Wookie's average lifespan is 400 standard years.

    I suppose as that isn't in the main films it could still be put in one.

    Honestly I'd rather see Chewy expanded - when you consider that he's basically Han's support character and now there is no Han. He spent most of this last film in the background - basically just the pilot! One shame is that they've never direct translated his lines into english for the audience to read, which means anything he says has to be interpreted directly (ergo repeated back) by the characters around him. That in itself seriously limits the range of what he can say and how deep conversations or scenes with him can go.

    Chewie should have had a new co-pilot/partner in smuggling. That is not being disrespectful to Han. That's just business. If he could have had his wife (and maybe a creche for the baby fur ball) in the MF that would be fine.

    I'd like to see more depth with his character and Kashyykk but I doubt that would ever happen. I think the best we got for the Wookies was in Revenge of the Sith.

    It's all about the new characters now. Maybe we get more in the Solo film though.

    I've now seen it twice and I think it's the best since the original trilogy. I love Rae! I like the tension between her and Ren. I noticed and liked all of the women in all of the different places. My thought was "It's about time." but it did feel different.... Different better.

    This response always gets me. For me "The Empire Strikes Back" was by far the weakest of he original trilogy. I was so frustrated after that movie ended I just wanted to hit something. ---- But everyone knows I like endings where the forces of good prevail, so that has to be figured in.

    I think that we get a terrific hint of how the the end comes. You win by saving your friends. I loved this bit!!

    Yes, exactly this!

    Dave, I think you are so right here. I was an adult when these movies came out and in my limited circle of friends no one ever thought in these terms and very few had so far thought (or even could in the beginning) of watching them over and over to get all the nuance.

    I like the commentary on this video, and some of the observations made about what the film was really about and why that would inevitably seem disappointing - at least, initially:

    Brian, I agree that was really insightful stuff. And he may even be right about it, which is even more shocking.

    I couldn't concentrate on his argument, because of his T-shirt.

    If there is, somewhere, an otter who is Emperor of the Seas, where does one go to swear fealty?
