Chewbacca, the galaxy’s most famous Wookie and star of Solo: A Star Wars Story surprised Londoners over the bank holiday weekend when he went on a sight-seeing tour of the capital to celebrate the film becoming the number one movie in the UK and Ireland.

Chewbacca made the rounds in London over the bank holiday weekend surprising commuters on Millennium Bridge and Leicester Square visiting Buckingham Palace and taking a ride on an iconic red open top bus across Central London.  The Wookie even made a surprise guest appearance at Jamie Oliver’s birthday party in North London.

The film, which is the next instalment in the Disney and Lucasfilm Star Wars franchise, is the second stand-alone Star Wars film from the studios following 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and has been the number one choice for cinema-goers this weekend as the film dethroned Twentieth Century Fox’s’ Deadpool 2 to be the top film at the UK and Irish box office, taking a total of £7.6 million in the UK and Ireland over 5 days.

Solo: A Star Wars Story has opened to critical acclaim, particularly for Alden Ehrenreich as the young space smuggler Han Solo winning him praise from UK critics for his performance and portrayal of the iconic character.

The film, directed by Ron Howard also stars Woody Harrelson Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany.
