Yes, Peter Mathew, who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies is becoming an American citizen. And his wife is from Texas!

I feel a disturbance in the force. [Eek!]

Cool. Ya, he always was a cool guy. The funny thing is, normally ppl dont say much about Chewbacca, but he really was a good character.

I thought the whole Chewie in Episode III thing was super lame.

If Chewie was such a mighty warrior and friend of Yoda, why would he allow himself to be ordered around and bullied by that scruffy-looking nerf herder Han Solo? [Roll Eyes]

He's already an American. I have a library patron whose legal first name is Chewbacca. You could almost kill your folks for that and get away with it. [Big Grin]

Peter Mayhew explains that on his site.
quote:
Chewie, as he's known to his friends, left Kashyyyk at the age of fifty standard years to explore the galaxy. Things seemed to go fine for the next 140 years, until he was captured by slavers and sold to Imperial forces. Unbeknownst to him, his planet had been subjugated years before. Severely mistreated at a hard-labor camp, Chewbacca was saved from certain death by a young Han Solo. Saving Chewbacca's life resulted in a "life debt" from the Wookiee, and Chewbacca became first the protector and then the best friend of the Corellian. He served with Solo as he embarked on a smuggling career, aided by the swift Millennium Falcon, which Solo won in a game of sabacc.

What is the Wookiee Life Debt?
A sacred Wookiee custom, a life debt is pledged to anyone who saves a Wookiee's life, forming a bond that can never be broken. A life debt is a sacred act of honor, designed to repay that which is without measure.
