For the upcoming young Han Solo film, producers needed a young Chewbacca -- and the filmmakers found their star in 29-year-old Finnish basketball player Joonas Suotamo.

Suotamo is taking on the mantel from longtime Star Wars legend Peter Mayhew, who originated the role in the first Star Wars trilogy, beginning with 1977’s Episode IV – A New Hope.

However, for the upcoming prequel story, Suotamo is going to be in the driver's seat, playing the celebrated Wookiee throughout the entire film.
