<img src="https://https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Joonas-Suotamo-as-Chewbacca-in-Solo.jpg" /><p>Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo from <em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/han-solo/">Solo: A Star Wars Story</a></strong></em> is poking fun at his height in a new photo with three of the stars from <strong><em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/lord-of-the-rings/">The Lord of the Rings</a></em></strong> trilogy.

He originated the role in 1977's <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-wars/">Star Wars</a></em> and went on to reprise it for four more <em>Star Wars</em> films, including the 2015 blockbuster that ushered in a new era of heroes in a galaxy far, far away.</p><p>Of course, it was Mayhew's 7-foot-3 height that made him an imposing figure on set, so Lucasfilm had to find a suitable replacement for the actor after he filmed <em>The Force Awakens</em>. They found him with Suotamo, a 6-foot-11 native of Finland who made his big screen debut officially billed as "Chewbacca double" for <em>The Force Awakens</em> before inheriting the role for <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-wars-8/">Star Wars: The Last Jedi</a></em>.
