Star Wars is currently enjoying a surge in its already-constant popularity, thanks to a well-received trailer that at least in part caused a massive crash on movie theaters selling advance tickets on the internet. So it’s cool of the Star Wars people to lend some of their juice to a less-relevant cultural artifact, Where’s Waldo?, for a book called Where’s Wookiee?
This concept is probably fairly self-explanatory, but basically Where’s Wookiee? is just like Where’s Waldo?, but with Chewbacca instead of Waldo. Still don’t get it? Here’s the book’s official promotional copy, which should clear things up:
“Chewbacca, a notorious rebel ally, is wanted for crimes against the Empire. Not often seen without his partner-in-crime, Han Solo, this Wookiee has evaded capture on multiple occasions, due in no small part to the fastest freighter in the universe, the Millennium Falcon. Chewie, as he is more commonly known, has a sizeable bounty on his head. Can you find this furry criminal before other accomplished bounty hunters beat you to it?”
And so, the only question now is whether a kid who’s never heard of Where’s Waldo? will enjoy Where’s Wookiee?, and anyone who knows anything about kids’ reactions to Star Wars will doubtlessly know the answer. You can check out the book over at Amazon, where it’s priced at just a bit over ten bucks, right here.
