Christmas is the time for mistletoe, sleigh bells, egg nog ... and wookies?

Glee will welcome Chewbacca for the Fox musical's upcoming Christmas episode.

Series stars, including Harry Shum, tweeted pictures with Chewie last month. Last week, Matthew Morrison — who also directed the Christmas episode — revealed additional details. "We're doing a Christmas special within the episode of Glee and it's a throwback and a tribute to the Star Wars holiday special and the Judy Garland Christmas special," Morrison said.

Sadly, Morrison also said that Chewbacca won't be singing. (But here's hoping they might still use one of the original songs featured on the Star Wars Christmas special from 1978!)
