“Lil Chewie,” the then-8-month-old baby boy, was visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Disney World Resort, Florida, with his grandparents Rachel and Eric Herrholz. The lifelong force fanatics had taken their grandson to the “Star Wars launch bay” section of the tour when the wholesome events were captured on film.

The character dressed as Chewie begins investigating the baby completely in character, gently poking at him and tickling his belly.
