'Glee's' Christmas Episode Guest Star: Chewbacca
Glee's Christmas episode is getting a bit hairy.
Star Wars' Chewbacca has become the latest "guest star" to appear on the Fox musical dramedy.
Matthew Morrison, who directs next week's Christmas one-off, told ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live that the episode features a special within the episode that's a throwback to the Star Wars holiday special and the Judy Garland Christmas special.
"We called George Lucas and they gave us Chewbacca," Morrison told Kimmel, noting that the cast members all snapped photos with the Star Wars icon and while confirming that the Wookie's visit to Glee did not feature a song.
Watch the clip below for the full interview.
Glee's Christmas episode, which will feature at least six holiday songs, airs Tuesday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
