Star Wars: Actor Joonas Suotamo Weighs In On Whether Or Not Chewie Cheats At Holo-Chess

There’s a short scene in The Rise of Skywalker that calls back to both A New Hope and The Force Awakens. Chewbacca playing a game of holo-chess against Finn and Poe. The two accuse the Wookiee of cheating. A bold, but foolish move if you ask me, I wouldn’t dare accuse the big walking carpet of cheating unless my name Han Solo, Leia Organa, or Luke Skywalker.

Anyway, Chewie didn’t rip their arms off for the accusation, the question wasn’t really answered one way or the other in the film, but now actor Joonas Suotamo, who has played the Wookiee since the fur and bandolier was passed on to him by Peter Mayhew after The Force Awakens, has chimed in on the subject. You can check out what he had to say about it while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter below.

“Well, over the years, Chewie has found that winning at that game proves to everyone that you rule the Falcon and all its gadgets. So, it’s important to win at all costs. I’ll let that be my final word on the subject. (Laughs.)”

All I have to say is the question is irrelevant. Even if you caught Chewie cheating, and had witnesses and video evidence, what are you going to do about? That’s right, nothing. Nothing at all, because you value your arms. In the iconic words of C-3PO, “Let the Wookiee win.”

If you caught Chewie cheating would you call him out? Let us know in the comments down below!
