The Millennium Falcon ride at Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Smuggler’s Run, is an absolute blast! I finally had the opportunity to go on it about a couple of months ago and I absolutely loved it! Star Wars: Galaxy Edge is pretty incredible and if you haven’t had a chance to go yet, you have something to look forward to.
Anyway, Smuggler’s Run puts fans in the middle of a team-up mission between Chewbacca and Hondo Ohnaka, a character who’s appeared in the animated Star Wars series. Well, some fans have discovered a hack on the ride that will turn Hondo off during the ride and instead have Chewbacca yell at you through the whole ride.
The hack has to be completed like an old video game cheat code as you need to make certain inputs by a certain time in order to bring “Chewie mode” online. You can watch a video that I included below that gives you the instructions. Here are the written instructions:
“First and foremost, do not activate your position right away like you normally do. Left and right pilots need to push their controls to the extreme left/right or extreme up/down. Once you’ve done that, hit your activation button.
Engineers and Gunners need to hit one of the white buttons on their console before hitting the orange activation button. Kind of like using the shift key on a keyboard.
Finally, be sure you’ve done this before the cast members finishes checking your seatbelts (pull the yellow thingy) and he hits his ok to go button.
And that’s it. Do it right and chewy will be yelling at you for 5 minutes. Miss a step and you get Hondo and his canisters.”
Check out the video below. This is something that I have to try doing next time I go to Disneyland.
