I’ve long since theorized that Ryan Murphy has long since given up on having Glee make sense and has at this point just settled with making the show interesting. So now Chewbacca, as in the actual Chewbacca himself, from Star Wars, is going to be making a guest appearance on next week’s Christmas special. And your brain just imploded in on itself. You’re welcome. Us Weekly reports:
Matthew Morrison confirmed the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “We called up George Lucas and he gave us Chewbacca. There is only one guy who can officially be Chewbacca, and he lives in Northern California and they flew him in,” the 33-year-old actor, who also directed the episode, explained. “We had Chewbacca for the day, and it was just great, and we were all taking pictures with him.” According to the actor, the holiday show will be an episode-within-an episode. “We’re doing a Christmas special within the episode of Glee,” Morrison explained. “It’s a throwback and a tribute to the Star Wars holiday special and the Judy Garland Christmas special.”
Holy crap, that’s so awesome. You have to realize, at this point the entire show has just gone straight off the rails, so the only real way to watch the show is with an empty jar labeled “fucks I give”. It’s the same way you watch American Horror Story: it is, objectively, a terrible show. But as campy insanity, it is one of the most entertaining things I have ever seen. I think Ryan Murphy accidentally became John Waters, and he hasn’t even realized it yet!
