Disney will not follow EU. Nah. He's alive and well in the real movie canon Star. Wars world. Not the fan fiction world So some elderly couple or new children that are Star Wars fans, and not EU fans at all (or know what EU is which is like 90% of fans), go to see the new movies or the new Star Wars theme park. You think new owners Disney are gonna say. "Chewbacca is dead." To these people? Have a murale for a dead Chewie?
