Category: 22. Star Wars in the Real World: Build what would happen if a Star Wars character entered the real world.
Welcome to the first episode of "The Wookiee Chronicles!" This IS an entry for the SWLC 2nd Official SWA, I just couldn't include the whole story in one entry, so this is just the beginning... Parts 2, 3, and so on will not be entries for the contest as they will probably be completed after the contest has ended. Enjoy!
Corresponding dialogue will be beneath each photo. Certain parts of the story convey Chewbacca's thoughts through English. Please don't be confused. :P
Ship Log 7-4-2012: Craft is holding together. Hyperdrive malfunctioned and I am now drifting towards an unknown planet...
Dazed and disoriented, Chewbacca regained consciousness a few minutes after impact. Although damage was minimal, there was no way Chewy was going to take off again without some mechanical work. Unknown to Chewy was the fact that he had landed in Northern California... a place similar to his homeworld.
As Chewy traveled away from the crash sight, fearing that powerful predators might be attracted to the smoke, he walked along a path carved right through a giant Sequoia tree. He thought: "I must me nearing civilization!"
His hunch was soon confirmed. Chewy came upon a road of sorts, and almost instantly his eyes were drawn to a sign that appeard to display one of his own kind! Unfortunately, he couldn't read English, so he didn't know the sign said "Bigfoot Gas-and-Go. 1 mile."
As Chewy paced towards the sign, he was interrupted by the passing of an Amtrak train. In an instant, Chewy knew that to get to the city of Wookiees (also known as "Bigfoot Gas-and-Go"), he needed to hop on the train...
Don: Hey, man, what are you doing back here? I thought you missed the train! C'mon inside, I saved a seat for you.
Chewy: Arrhhh, ruhh, ruhh, grergh?
Don: Oh, yeah, sorry. Remember when we e-mailed each other about going to the San Diego Comic Con about a week ago? Well, I didn't see you at the station, but I couldn't miss the train sooo...
Don: Oh yeah, I guess I should formally introduce myself. The name's Don Rolo.
Chewy: Gruh arghhhhh.
Don: Oh, I see. You want to stay in character until after the convention. Yeah, I can pick up a few Wookiee words here and there.
note: Don can't understand a thing.
Don: Yep, this here's Northern California at its best! The nature, the adventure, the people... Hey, the people you see in this car are the best examples you can find of the model citizen!
Chewy: Gruh urghhh argh?
Don: Well, let's see, there's the lady in orange who probably just got released from prison even though her sentence is far from over because the prisons are overcrowded, the guy who thinks he's Dracula's long lost nephew, the guy behind me with the suitcase who's been counting down from 1,534 ever since we got on the train, and those two Hippies from Morro Bay in front of me who just won't stop talking about auras!
Don: You think that hunter's normal? Yeah, he looks normal, but you didn't see what he loaded in his carry-on.
Chewy: Grugh, narghhh?
Don: Dead cats.
Hippie Dude: Hey honey, do you think we'll get to the crystal fishbowl clinic in time?
Hippie Lady: Oh, I hope so. Ever since Junior got this skull stuck in the crystal fishbowl while pretending to be Hamlet, things have never been the same.
Prisoner: Your time's over hippie freak! *stab*
Hippie Dude: Joanne, I said to wait to kill 'er until no one was around!!
Joanne: Oh, ugh, sorry.
Hippie Dude: Uh, sorry for the.. uh... mess dudes, I... uh... have to go talk with my ex in the... uh... back. If we don't come back... uh... don't... uh... call the Police! Yeah, uh, yeah...
