Chewbacca to appear on 'Glee' holiday episode, completing George Lucas' journey to the dark side

Well, at least he's warm.
“Into the garbage chute, flyboy!”

Has anyone ever seemed more intent on ruining his own reputation as George Lucas? We're all aware of his many self-inflicted artistic crimes against the "Star Wars" franchise, but here's the latest. US Weekly reports that Chewbacca will guest star next Tuesday on the holiday episode of "Glee."
Matthew Morrison confirmed the news on "Jimmy Kimmel Live:" "We called up George Lucas and he gave us Chewbacca. There is only one guy who can officially be Chewbacca, and he lives in Northern California and they flew him in," the 33-year-old actor, who also directed the episode, explained. "We had Chewbacca for the day, and it was just great, and we were all taking pictures with him." 
Coming soon: Darth Vader on "Survivor?"


  1. Have you forgotten the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special back in '78--Princess Leia singing the Star Wars theme? Shades of Glee!

  2. I've been trying to forget for nearly 33 years!
