Watch This Never-Before-Scene Clip of Chewbacca Ripping Off a Guy’s Arm
Dang, we didn’t know he had it in him.
Recently, we teased a deleted scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens wherein some latent badass streak awoke within the usually lovable Chewbacca. When Rey found herself in some trouble with some angry barkeep from Jakku, it was reported that Chewbacca would come to her rescue by ripping the dude’s arm off.
At last, video of the grisly encounter has made its way online, and it is a side of the hirsute wookie we’ve never seen before. When the bullish space thug threatens Rey with a gun, Chewbacca snatches it right out from his hand and then, as rumored, rips his limb off without thinking twice (he didn’t even make his trademark Chewbacca howl afterwords).
**Cue “Like a Boss” by The Lonely Island.**
It’s a shocking scene, and we see why the powers that be had some reservations about putting it into the theatrical version. Even so, it is fairly badass to see what our man Chewy (street name) is capable of.
