Harrison Ford and Benedict Cumberbatch Chewbacca impression on The Graham Norton Show

Sherlock and Star Trek Into Darkness star Benedict Cumberbatch made an appearance this weekend on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show, where he talked to the host about his recent role as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate, which opened in theaters this past Friday.

On the talk show, it came up that Cumberbatch, who also voices the dragon Smaug in Peter Jackson’s upcoming The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, is very good at doing impressions, for real people and for fictional characters, including for Chewbacca, the Wookie from the Star Wars saga. Cumberbatch then did an impression of Chewbacca while sitting right next to Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, who had a look of shock on this face, as if he’d been transported back to a galaxy far, far away!

Check out the video of the moment here below, along with a video where Norton asks the actors if they’re in the new Star Wars film.

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Harrison Ford was a guest to promote his new movie, the Jackie Robinson biopic 42.

Ford agreed to answer some questions from the audience, so long as those questions didn’t have anything to do with Star Wars, a topic he’s been swarmed about ever since word surfaced that he could be reprising his role as Han Solo for the J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars Episode VII.

The results, as you might have guessed, are pretty hilarious…especially when his old friend Chewbacca gets involved. Continue below now to watch the video.

The second comes in a Millennium Falcon case (which makes the “jump to light speed” sound when opened), and features the dynamic duos of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, R2-D2 and C-3PO, and Han Solo and Chewbacca.

Leia's O Face?For those who celebrate Wookiee Life Day as opposed to all of the other end-of-year holidays, we have a treat for you… the Star Wars Holiday Special in 5 minutes, specially edited to only focus on the “live-action” stuff. Watch it here below.

If you haven’t seen the Holiday Special before, it’s certainly a gem from its time. If you thought Expanded Universe debates and Originals vs. Prequels debates turn out to divide fans, wait until you get in the middle of an argument about this thing.

Complete with Bea Arthur and Jefferson Starship, The Star Wars Holiday Special first aired in November 1978 and also featured Han and Chewie, Luke Skywalker with the WORST possible haircut ever, and Princess Leia singing a song that is sure to induce brain hemorrhages.

The original full special also marked a few firsts: one of which was the very first appearance of Boba Fett (before his debut in The Empire Strikes Back) in a short animated story involving Luke, Han, Chewie, the Droids, and some weird beast of burden Fett rides.
