One thing is for sure. You're not gonna see Mace Windu or Andronikos Revel in here, as they have chosen to shave their heads completely. But seriously, if you've overdosed yourself with films from the Star Wars Universe, you probably have seen more hairy creatures from those movies than anywhere else in cinema. And mind you, it's not just the Wookiees we're talking about here, and more so, not those from the Jedi order who sport their signature tiny Padawan braids. With so many planets from the SWU populated by mammalian species, there's zero chance you'll get furry characters out of your sight if you're a diehard Star Wars fan. Check out some of the best hairy Star Wars characters ever created and figure out if you'll need a hairstyle change afterwards.
Even some of the most hardcore Star Wars fans aren't aware that Chewbacca's character was actually based on George Lucas' pet Alaskan Malamute. Yes, you read that right. Such also explains why the fan-favorite loyal soldier is as hairy as he is. After all, Chewbacca will probably be the first character to come to your head when asked about the best among the hairy creatures from the Star Wars Universe. But that's just not because of his unrivaled furriness, but more likely due to his undying allegiance to Han Solo.
It's just fun that the catalog of Star Wars characters keeps expanding with every release, and that's without exempting new hairy ones. If you think of a Wookiee that might have met up with a Wampa, then you'll probably get Moroff. That's all you can say about his appearance that resembles a lot of other George Lucas creations. You've seen this Gigoran specie from Rogue One's Rebel forces and aside from his hairiness, his innovative voice-translation box is enough to see why he's one of the most unique hairy characters ever.
Well, what makes this strange-looking Ewok stand out from other hairy creatures? It's probably his grit and contributions to the cause of the Rebellion as seen in the Return of The Jedi. Can you imagine that this little brown-furred scout aided Princess Leia in the battle against the Empire on the forest moon of Endor. That would definitely sound like a mini Chewbacca to most Star Wars Fans. Small, hairy, but terrible, don't you think?
Meet The Last Jedi's official breakout hairy creatures, the Porgs! These furry, bird-like species have taken over Star Wars fans' hearts by storm. So, can you even blame Chewbacca if he showed his soft side by developing an inter-specie kin relationship with that little hairy Porg with big eyes? Well, looks like if there were creatures to replace the Ewoks as the official hairy eye candies of the franchise, it would be them without a doubt.
Out of all the hairy Star Wars characters to exist, the Banthas might be the ones that resemble actual animals the most. These creatures from Tatooine actually appeared as one of the first OG thick-furred species from the original 'Star Wars' film. Just by the looks of it, you'll get intimidated by how huge the Bantha is but rest assured, they are herbivores with a peaceful and docile manner who survives by consuming grasses. Looks like 'hairy' is a trait that really grew with the franchise throughout the years.
Scared of them? Well, you probably should be. Remember the furry white beast that attacked Luke and his tauntaun during the scenes from The Empire Strikes back? Yes, that's a Wampa right there. While they are one of the most vicious, if not the most vicious, among the hairy creatures from the Star wars Universe, you'd still be fascinated about how believably cool that character looks like.
