Star Wars Characters You Never Realized Are Actually Naked

Yep, it’s true. Han Solo’s (Harrison Ford) favorite furry companion is — aside from his holster — completely nude throughout his adventures in every single “Star Wars” film and television show. He does have two holsters that contain blaster ammo on his body, but otherwise, the character goes through the world both barefooted and nude. Perhaps that’s just a tradition on Kashyyyk, where all of Chewbacca’s fellow Wookies also go about their lives without a stitch of clothing on. That includes — via the not-quite-canonical “Star Wars Holiday Special” — his wife, Malla, his son, Lumpy, and his father-in-law, Itchy. But there seem to be exceptions to this tradition; as viewers also see in the special, Wookies don red ceremonial robes during their annual Life Day celebrations. 

There’s a very good reason for Chewy to be as nude as he is; the character was inspired by George Lucas’ beloved Alaskan Malamute dog, Indiana. And yes, in case you were wondering, the dog also inspired the nickname of another Lucas-created franchise, Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones.
