Chewbacca Wants You to Roar For New Charity Campaign

The auction house Profiles in History announced Thursday that the items, which include a practice chariot used during production of "Ben Hur", the leather jacket worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the first "Terminator" film and a nightgown used by Olivia de Havilland during "Gone With the Wind" filming are among the sale items. Therefore, enjoy May 4 to the best of your abilities and may the force truly be with you. As part of the campaign, fans and families can share their own version of the iconic roar for Star Wars character Chewbacca.

"Without a doubt this is Chewbacca's best role ever", declares Howard in the behind-the-scenes vid launching the new charitable endeavour, although the wookiee's fellow actors reveal he's guilty of some distinctly diva-like behaviour on the set.

For starters, most true Star Wars fans have been preparing their movie marathon for this day.

Director Ron Howard comes to his defense, and calls out his heart of gold under the gruff exterior and that's why Chewbacca is challenging folks to roar for change.

So while you'd normally embarrass yourself on social media without helping anyone, this time you can roar like Chewbacca online and help support a good cause.

Details on the saga-concluding Star Wars: Episode IX are few and far between, but star John Boyega might have filled in a few blanks during an interview.

May 4 is celebarted as Star Wars Day by the fans of the franchise.

Partners from across the Star Wars galaxy have joined forces to celebrate the initiative. In 2007, to mark the 30th anniversary of Star Wars release date, the Los Angeles City Council declared May 25 as Star Wars Day.

"We are thrilled to team up with Star Wars: Force for Change and Chewbacca to help improve the lives of malnourished children around the world".

The day arose from a pun which was warmly shared by Star Wars fans, who would say "May the 4th be with you", on the day.
