With Rogue One turning out to be the holiday movie of the year, it’s only fitting that everyones favourite Star Wars character is also getting into the festive spirit.

 

Popular YouTube channel “How It Should Have Ended“, which normally creates short cartoons with alternate endings to movies and TV shows (including the Star Wars films), posted a mash-up of scenes of the galaxy’s most famous Wookie appearing to sing “Silent Night.”

The video features a series of scenes from the original Star Wars movies but combines Chewbacca’s famous growls into an awesome version of Silent Night.

The channel explained that the video is one that gets re-shared every holiday season, but was actually created in 1999 by Scott Anderson.

On his website, Anderson explains that he made the song after a coworker gave musician Paul Todd the nickname “Chewbacca.” Anderson said that Todd had worked with his company to create a CD titled “Christmas with Paul Todd,” so he started by creating a new album cover featuring Chewbacca.

Anderson said he decided to take the goof one step further and mapped sounds of Chewie’s trademark growls and roars onto a synthesizer, which he then played to the tune of “Silent Night.”
