‘Star Wars’ Chewbacca to guest in Christmas ‘Glee’ episode

Everyone's favourite Wookie turns up in Artie's dream sequence

Star Wars favourite Chewbacca makes a guest appearance in this year’s Christmas episode of Glee.

The Wookie makes the cameo in a dream of disabled character Artie Abrams, played by Kevin McHale, in the episode due to air next week.

Revealing the guest spot, Harry Shum Jr, who plays character Mike Chang, told AOL TV:”It was incredibly awesome. It was a huge surprise. He makes an appearance into Artie’s dream in a way. I can’t really delve into the details, but it’s something to do with Artie.”

Half of us came in right after he was done and it was like a mad house. Everyone’s face was so happy. They were showing off their pictures. They actually got him to come back to take pictures with us, too. It was so funny how many people actually love Chewbacca.

This year’s Glee Christmas episode also sees the cast cover Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’, which will also feature on the show’s second festive album. The episode airs in the UK on Thursday, December 15 on Sky1.
