    I did not know this. That puts a new spin on it since now he's a volunteer.

    Passage from that book. It's really good, read it if you get time. Second of that Aftermath Trilogy.
    They’re partners. Have been for most of the life that Han can (or cares to) remember. Chewie grunts and growls. “Ah, you’re doing fine, you big lunk.” Another growl. This one, a question. “I, ahhh.” Wow, this is harder than he thought. Han scuffs a heel and throws up his hands like he’s folding at the sabacc table. “I thought this day would come later, Chewie, but something’s happened and—” The Wookiee steps up and nods, rumbling a soft response. Chewie understands. Even before Han says it, Chewie gets it. In sync yet again to no one’s surprise. Chewie knows that Han has to go. And what’s the first thing that the gargantuan hair-beast does? The Wookiee offers to come along right now. Han waves both hands and shakes his head as vigorously as he can, even waggling his finger up in his friend’s shaggy face. “No. No! You have to stay here. We fought like hell for this and now… this is yours. Okay? All yours. This is home. You got people here and I want you to find them. You hear me? That’s my last demand. No arguments.” Chewie rumbles but Han reiterates, more firmly this time: “I said no arguments. You be with your family. I have to go start mine.” A moment of silence stretches out between them and deep in the space between Han’s heart and his gut he wants to seize on the desire that lives there— he wants to tell Chewie, Just kidding, let’s go, pal, get on board the ship and let’s see what trouble we can cook up. Then they’ll race off together to Malastare or Warrin Station or back to that dusty Mos Eisley cantina to pick up some other wayward dust-farmer kid… and then when he gets home and his baby, his son is born, Chewie will be right there doing whatever needs doing because that’s who Chewie is. But he doesn’t say any of that. Chewie hugs him and purrs. “I’ll be back. We’re not done, you and I. We’ll see each other again. I’m gonna be a father and no way my kid won’t have you in his life.” One more bark and yip as Chewie pets his head. “Yeah, pal. I know.” He sighs. “I love you, too.”

    That entire book had such great Han and Han/Chewie moments.

    How Han is broken without Chewie, how desperately he tries to find him, how he considers that he has Life Debt towards Chewie... It's great.

    Yeah, how he tells Norra crew how it's the other way around. I always think of the title of the book being about Han's to Chewie rather than the other way around. The catalyst for what happens in that part of the story.

    This is how I see it as well.

    Given the chance to either retire or continue the good fight, Chewie would choose the latter, I think.

    He still has much energy, love, and dedication to offer, I believe, especially in memory of Han now.

    Rock on, Chewie!

    Why on earth not both? Let him return to Kashyyk and raise an Army. The Wookiee army was underutilized in RotS. Give them a real chance to shine.

    I hope Chewie gets the happy ending he deserves, add on with his own theme in Episode IX ( or possibly Solo? :) ).

    I love this thread :)

    ..and yeah, I hope Chewie goes home in Ep. 9. Please, for the love of god, let this feel like a proper conclusion to the main series. I don't want a dragged-out 10-12 trilogy of tacked on garbage with all the original characters either gone or needing walkers to get on set. I guess I'm a Lucas apologist because his vision was 9 films. Anything beyond that is EU/Legends/whatever.

    There's been a slight misunderstanding here.

    TCW show is part of both timelines, just like the movies are part of both timelines. It doesn't mean that the movies and TCW are not "canon" in the Legends timeline, you're misunderstanding.

    The reason people want the TCW show to be cut out from the Legends timeline is simply because it doesn't fit there, it contradicts way too much stuff from the Clone Wars Multimedia Project. TCW fits much better in the new canon timeline, which it is also part of.

    Ok, this is an ancient rumor but is it true wen Disney was negotiating with God....i mean GL.... at first, Disney didn't want TCW as canon?

    But GL changed thier minds?

    I'm glad TCW is canon. It should be. This was in this weeks Star Wars comic.
