How Freaking Cute Is This "Star Wars" Shoot With a Doxie as Chewbacca?

A photographer reimagines the friendship between Han Solo and Chewbacca as the bond between a boy and his dog.

Okay, this is just between you and me because it feels sooo dorky to admit, but the Star Wars trilogy may or may not be the reason I wanted to go to film school. My aspirations have changed as I've matured, but I still pay homage to my whimsical youth with two framed A New Hope posters in my living room. They're charming, retro, and perfectly match my red couch and dark wood bar.

A very tiny Wookiee.

So, you can imagine my joy when I found these photos of a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, starring a little boy as Han Solo and an adorable older Dachshund as his best friend, Chewbacca. It's kind of the perfect imagery, and it's captured beautifully by a photographer and designer from Mexico named Rocio Preciado. Her business is called Cuije Photo, after Preciado's late dog friend.

This is all your imagination games come to life.

Just like the friendship between Han Solo and his Wookiee co-pilot, there is a profound sense of companionship between this little boy and his dog, conveyed warmly in Preciado's series of gold-toned photos. Watching the accompanying behind-the-scenes video, you can feel yourself slipping away to those late summer days of simpler times, when all you needed was your imagination and a good friend.
