Chewbacca Glee - This Christmas, “Glee” is trading Santa Claus for another popular character: Chewbacca.

In the show’s upcoming holiday episode, directed by actor Matthew Morrison, the “Star Wars” Wookiee will join the cast for a unique episode-within-an-episode tribute to 1978′s “Star War’s Holiday Special.”

“We called up George Lucas and he gave us Chewbacca,” Morrison said during an appearance on “Jimmel Kimmel Live” Monday night. “There is only one guy who can officially be Chewbaccca, and he lives in Northern California and they flew him in.”

Harry Shum Jr., who plays Mike Chang on the musical series, revealed that Chewbacca would make his “Glee” debut in an unordinary way.

“He makes an appearance into Artie’s dream in a way,” Shum told AOL TV. “I can’t really delve into the details, but it’s something to do with Artie.”

One thing is for sure: “Glee’s” cast and crew were overly enthused to see Chewbacca on set.

“We had Chewbacca for the day, and it was just great, and we were all taking pictures with him,” Morrison said on “Kimmel.” “This is a guy who has been doing it for 12 years.”

“Everyone’s face was so happy,” Shum added. “They were showing off their pictures.”

The episode, airs Dec. 13, and will also pay homage to Judy Garland’s Christmas special.
