As the release date of Solo: A Star Wars Story draws ever closer, we’ve had a question on our minds: “What is a man without his best friend?” In the case of Han Solo, he’s still a scruffy yet charming smuggler with a killer smile and a cool vest. But no story about said smuggler would be complete without his Wookiee co-pilot and best friend, Chewie.
To celebrate the special relationship Han and Chewbacca share, we collected all our favorite GIFs in one place and some helpful suggestions for when to deploy them.
If “Laugh and the Wookiee laughs with you” isn’t already a common expression, it probably should be.
After all, we’re well aware that laughter is a big part of Han and Chewie’s friendship...
Even if they’re not always both laughing.
But that laughter is always out of love. A love that’s evident through every interaction. Who wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of a warm and snuggly Wookiee hug?
This one is just right for those times you need to lift someone up, emotionally or otherwise.
And this is good if you haven’t mastered the art of the wink (as so few have). It’s hard to read Chewie’s expressions sometimes, but he’s clearly proud to be Han’s wingman here.
Maybe you’re just feeling confused and can’t put it into words. As ever, our heroes can relate. (Bonus points for the Finn cameo.)
Now, let’s say you just got back from a long journey and you couldn’t be happier about it. (I’m not crying, you’re crying!)
And finally, imagine you’re about to embark on a new adventure and the last thing you have to do before you go is get a pep talk from your traveling companion. (I’m ready for some context for this one, and I’m sure you are, too.)
Do you have any more Han and Chewbacca GIFs to complete our roundup? Let us know in the comments!
