REVIEW: Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm
“Chewie, we’re home!”
Snuggle up for the winter with our favourite warm hearted Wookiee, Chewbacca!
Both Pandora and Star Wars fans were delighted when the highly anticipated Star Wars x Pandora Collection was released on Thursday 1st October 2020! Pandora kindly gifted me my favourite pieces from the capsule collection including one of the lovable Wookiee, the Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm (799250C01).

Although he doesn’t say a great deal and what he does say is a bit hard to understand, Chewbacca is my favourite character from Star Wars. The Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm (799250C01) is also my number one pick from the Star Wars x Pandora Collection.
Chewbacca or Chewie to his friends, is perfectly captured in the Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm. Fittingly for the Wookiee, it is quite a large charm which hangs almost like a dangle. Chewbacca’s kind eyes and button nose are hand painted with glossy black enamel. While a dark brown enamel decorates his leather bandolier.
Referred to as both a fuzzball and a walking carpet, Chewie has a luscious furry coat which is illustrated with oxidised lines on the Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm.
One side of the Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm is engraved with the ‘PANDORA’ while ‘©LFL’ for Lucasfilm Ltd is stamped on the other side. As with many of the new Pandora charms, the Chewbacca Charm does not have a threaded core.
Pandora kindly gifted me my favourite charms from the Star Wars x Pandora Collection. Each review will showcase the individual character with a dedicated design.
Style: The Trusty Co-Pilot
“Will somebody get this big walking carpet out of my way?”

“Let him have it. It’s not wise to upset a Wookiee.”
Han Solo Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope
“I’d just as soon kiss a Wookiee.”
Princess Leia Star Wars Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
I decided on a simple mini theme styling with the Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm (799250C01). Inspired by Chewie’s bandolier the design is set on the Pandora Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet (597225CGT).
As trusty Co-Pilot of the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca sits on one side of the Pandora Disney Parks Millennium Falcon Dangle with the Theo Bear (798695C00) charm on the opposite side acting as Han Solo! Although he looks quite formidable, Chewie has a heart of gold and is loyal to his friends. This is represented with the two tone Happy Anniversary (791290) charm. While Chewbacca and Hans journeys in space trying to save the worlds is pictured with the 2018 Pandora Club (796602D). charm
My verdict on the Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm?
Worthy of a medal!

- Design - 10/1010/10
- Versatility - 8/108/10
The Star Wars x Pandora Chewbacca Charm (799250C01) has an incredible design which is very true to the character. Considering its size and enamel details it is also reasonably priced. The large size provides a big wow factor but does make it a little awkward to style, hence the drop in points for versatility.
The Star Wars x Pandora Collection is available both in store and online at our preferred Pandora retailer the UK Pandora eStore.
