It is known that Chewbacca was a Wookiee that fought (along with other Wookiees) for the Republic during the Clone Wars, but is there any information on what he did before the Clone Wars and Episode III?


He most likely lived like a human before the Clone Wars rolled around. You must remember that Wookies are as intelligent as humans and Chewbacca probably spent time with his family or did his hobby of repairing mechanical parts.

    Can you source any of these claims? Is there any reason to believe Chewbacca was on Kashyyyk and not elsewhere? – Edlothiad Oct 20 '18 at 10:50
  • What does it mean to live "like a human"? Do you mean, like, he lived in a home and a family as opposed to living in the wild? Is there any indication that Wookies lived significantly differently than humans, or that they were meaningfully lower in intelligence, technology, or civilization? I don't think there is. – Robert Columbia Oct 20 '18 at 11:45
