CLASSIC IMAGE: BEFORE BATTLE COMMENCES...
On Kashyyyk, jungle home of the formidable wookiees, its warrior leader Tarfful, alongside his sort-of lieutenant, Chewbacca (whose true working designation prior to meeting Han Solo has never really been pinned down- a technical assistant of some kind), get ready for battle against the Separatists, whilst Master Yoda, friend to the species, finishes an equally important conversation with his Jedi Temple colleagues on Coruscant. A scene of impeding action from EPISODE III.
After only seeing glimpses of it in comics or as a Ralph McQuarrie painting in 1978, and the briefest of moments in the second CLONE WARS micro-series, it was finally great to visually behold the Wookiee world by the time of this final Prequel film. Chewbacca's later presence in the animated THE CLONE WARS series, set before EPISODE III, was also much welcome, though its a major disappointment that a further major Wookiee/Kashyyyk plot leading into the epic Separatist battle was lost when the series was terminated by DISNEY all too early: To Fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Thank You | Star Wars Blog | Star Wars Blog
