Here's how to use Snapchat's Chewbacca filter for Star Wars Day

In case you haven’t already realised, today is May 4, which means it’s Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you!

And to celebrate, Snapchat has added a fun, and slightly scary, Chewbacca filter.

The social media platform has partnered with the Walt Disney Company to create the filter which can transform you into everyone’s favourite Wookiee when in selfie mode. There’s also a similar “May the 4th be With You” filter.

Snapchat is also offering a variety of Star Wars Bitmoji and stickers to enhance their Snaps, and those sharing their location on Snap Map will also get a lightsaber added to their icon.

But the best feature is perhaps the Lens, which works with the forward-facing camera, that shows Chewbacca teaching your Snapchat Bitmoji avatar to speak Wookiee.

Of course, fans have been having plenty of fun on Twitter

Meanwhile it’s just weeks until the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story and a new teaser has just dropped.

The clip shows Donald Glover aka Lando Calrissian living his MTV Cribs fantasy by giving a tour of the Millennium Falcon.

And even better than a hot tub, the Millennium Falcon has a cape room! Watch the featurette below:

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released in cinemas on May 24 in the UK and May 25 in the US.
