Working with Chewbacca at Star Tours was fun.  Most people knew who he was, but many times people would get excited thinking they were meeting "Harry!!!!!" (from "Harry and the Hendersons").  And one time, a Brasilian woman insisted on calling Chewie "King Kong! King Kong!"

Now that's just unreal. :laugh: How anyone can confuse Chewy for Harry is beyond me, especially since the movie "Harry And The Hendersons" bombed at the box office and the tv show based on it did worse!
:laugh:

Jaws?  Aren't they the little critters in hoods that roam around MGM & Star Tours?  I mean, didn't they kidnap 3-PO & R-2-D2? :D   :wink2:

Chewie is still very popular to this day and I don't think he's mistaken for other characters much anymore, at least not at the Star Wars Weekends at D-MGM. During the one I attended in June, there was a funny stage show in which he was brought onstage for a question and answer session (with an English-speaking alien translating for him).

That is where I learned that the reason his fur is all brown is because he tries to camouflage himself by blending into the forest -- and that his name is really pronounced "ChewBARKa!"
:laugh:

When I am in the parks I like to offer to take pictures for couples and families so all members of the group can be in the picture....i did that once while on International Gateway bridge at EPCOT...I cant remember where in Asia the family was from but after I took their picture the next thing I knew it ...they were all around me and had somebody else taking another picture with me in it. :) It was a  VERY surreal moment :)

If you really want to spend the day being asked questions about the parks, wear your "I'm a disneyfantasear" tag one time. It seems to have a sense of magnetism to it. I got stopped out of the blue in the middle of a meal to be asked where the nearest restroom was in a section of Fantasyland! By the end of the day I was just waiting for someone to ask me a really technical question about one of the attractions or a parade LOL

I just thought of another one.....whenever I would go to EPCOT after work I would wear my ID on my lanyard just to have somewhere to put it...At work we had to wear a shirt with a collar and kahakis....I must have looked all official or something cuz guests would come up to me to ask questions rather then asking the CM that I was standing next to :D

I was wearing my Guest of Honor badge and waiting for Carol and Michael to join me at the base of the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, leaning against the trunk of the tree at the bottom of the stairs, where the outdoor kitchen is.

I had lots of people think I was a Cast Member, including some foreign tourists who asked me what kind of a tree it was.
:)

And for the record, it is a Disneydendron semperflorens grandis (giant, ever-blooming Disney tree) .
:smart:

Hey--I was right there with ya!   :)

"ootini" is what the "jaws" yell out when they are speaking.

So now that it's out in the open, yes, I am quite the Star Wars NERD. :smart:  :bigsmile:
