The Wampa Lookalike: Chubbs the Wampug Strikes Back
In a new remake from the classic “Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back,” Luke Skywalker finds he is up against not just any kind of wampa, but a wampug named Chubbs
Talk about hitting the geek jackpot! There has been a recent recast in the Wampa scene in “Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back,” in for the wampa is Chubbs the Wampug. It was been retooled to feature a Luke Skywalker doll and most likely a lot of snacks and peanut butter!
The Wampug costume was created by Chubbs’ owner, fellow Star Wars geek, Kristen Andrews. After receiving a custom-built wampa cave to go with her custom-made wampa costume, she knew that she could not resist re-shooting this great scene and aptly naming it “The Wampug Strikes Back.”
Where’s the Oscar, this pug deserves and Oscar!
You can really see Chubbs getting into his role as the terrifying and scary wampa creature! Hopefully George Lucas is paying a bit of attention to this and if he decides to make any more re-edits, he will include this one!
