    What Happened? Why Is Chewbacca Angry?

    Now this is a true story and if you don't believe me I challenge you to find someone who could make this up. To this day I have no idea what this conversation was about, but it was so awkward it silenced a theater full of people. You know the man who played Chewbacca in Star...

    about them but it's not. Then they ask is it about them or say awe thank you, and u don't want to hurt them or make things awkward. So u just go ahead and let them think that or just be like ummm yeah suuurrrree. Even tho your really thinking something else.
