Chewbacca, a world-famous Star Wars character, has left pupils at a primary school in Kerry amazed after arriving for a visit. The star is filming the latest instalment of the blockbuster movie series as we speak.

He took a quick break from the set to visit Scoil Fheirtearaigh National School in Ballyferriter on Monday.

Some kids even got a snap on the Wookiee’s back.

It is reported the visit came after pupils sent impressive artwork to director Rian Johnson.
