Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a rough shoot for both of them, star Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as Han Solo and his co-star, the wookie Chewbacca, are finally setting aside their past differences. And they started by ending their feud on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live! We have the video from yesterday's show. We also have a second video, where Jimmy Kimmel hit the streets of Los Angeles to have some fun with people. It seems folks know more about the Star Wars movies than actual wars. So they asked people for their thoughts on current events using actually plot lines from the franchise in a special edition of Lie Witness News.
If you are at all familiar with Harrison Ford's appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, you probably know that he despises his 30 year working relationship with Chewbacca the Wookie. During last night's show, which saw new cast members from Star Wars: The Force Awakens join Jimmy Kimmel on stage, the actor decided it was time to bury the hatchet. Especially since he and Chewbacca are about to hit a long and grueling press trail for this long awaited sequel.
Chewbacca and Harrison Ford have dealt with a fair share of betrayal over the past few decades. But this long standing feud actually escalated when an 'unspecified' cheating incident occurred between the two. Jimmy Kimmel was never given the full intel on the episode that drove a strong wedge between these two. But ever since, he has been trying to mend this broken fence. Addressing the audience, loud sirens sounded a problem that might be bigger than anything Chewbacca and Harrison Ford have encountered before.
The late night host ran out of his studio only to find Chewbacca standing on the ledge of the building. Even though he has a huge blockbuster coming out soon, and his life should be happy, he was about to throw it all away. Yes, the wookie wanted to jump off the ledge to his death, and end it all. But Jimmy Kimmel called out to Chewbacca in hopes that he would change his mind and step down. Though, his efforts were rather unsuccessful.
In stepped Harrison Ford. He appeared alongside Jimmy Kimmel, ripping the megaphone from the host's hand. While most thought the actor was going to help the situation, he only threw fire on it. He yelled at the wookie. And then he told him to do the deed and jump. He screamed this at Chewbacca.
""Shut your Wookiee grunt hole, will ya? Don't give me that! You made a choice. She was my wife! . . . Go ahead, do us a favor. Jump!"
Thinking fast, Jimmy Kimmel urged Harrison Ford to remember all the good times he's shared with his old pal. This even includes listening to Adele's 'Hello'. Did Harrison Ford managed to change his former best friend's mind? Or did Chewbacca take David Lee Roth's advice and Jump? You can watch the entire episode play out in the video below, along with the Star Wars themed latest edition of Lie Witness News. You don't want to miss this!
