Great Job, Internet!: Louie becomes Chewie in new Star Wars parody

It looks like Chewbacca hasn’t aged a day in the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But what has Han Solo’s Wookie sidekick been up to since last we saw him? According to Nerdist, Chewbacca created/wrote/directed/starred in his very own Louie-like sitcom about the day-to-day life of an average Wookie, Chewie.

The shot-for-shot parody of the Louie opening credits shows Chewbacca wandering the streets of New York, enjoying some greasy pizza, and descending the steps of the iconic Comedy Cellar to do a set of his own in the usual cadence of the Wookie wail. Presumably, he has loads of material from all those years of palling around with Han.
