Travel Like a Jedi

“Chewie, we’re home.” With three little words, the Force was awakened within us all during the recent trailer for this December’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Han and Chewie’s reunion aboard the Millennium Falcon was perhaps the most hotly discussed movie trailer moment in years.

Where are Han and Chewie headed next?

In anticipation of the December 18 release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” HomeAway took a crack at answering that very question. See below for our predictions.

  1. Escape pod—to get away from it all

    Sometimes you just need a moment away from everyone else, even your Corellian space pilot BFF.

    It’s been 30 years, people: we think it’s high time that Chewbacca goes home to visit his family. Waiting for him in Kashyyyk are chewie’s father, Attichitcuk, and son Lumpawaroo—popularly known as Itchy and Lumpy.

  6. Tatooine—to get a tan

    It’s cold in space. Tatooine’s dry desert climate is the perfect for relaxing in the sun, giant pit monsters notwithstanding.
