Matthew Morrison, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, dished that the iconic Chewbacca character from the Star Wars series will be making a special cameo on a holiday-themed episode of his hit Fox show, Glee.

"We called up George Lucas and he gave us Chewbacca," Morrison, 33, told Kimmel in a recent appearance. "There is only one guy who can officially be Chewbacca (actor Peter Mayhew) and he lives in Northern California and they flew him in."

Morrison – who is directing the holiday episode - said the entire cast flocked around the tall, in-costume Chewy for photo-ops. He explained the logic behind the unlikely decision to write Han Solo's right-hand Wookie into the script.

"We're doing a Christmas special within the episode of Glee," Morrison said. "It's a throwback and a tribute to the Star Wars holiday special and the Judy Garland Christmas special."

Fun fact: Chewy made a rare cameo on Kimmel's show this summer during Harrison Ford's promotional tour for Cowboys & Aliens.
