One of the things that made me so upset while re-watching Star Wars: A New Hope in preparation for The Force Awakens was the fact that Princess Leia gave both Han Solo and Luke Skywalker medals for their efforts but gave nothing to Chewbacca. The most loyal of all companions, Chewbacca definitely deserved a medal! Well, he finally got his medal from Leia when he was presented with the 1997 MTV Lifetime Achievement Award and I have to say, hearing the music from the end of Episode 4 game me chills! I’m so happy that Chewbacca got his moment to shine! Chewbacca is definitely one of my favorite characters in all of the Star Wars Universe. Seeing this moment gave me chills!
