Vloggers Break Down “Chewbacca Mode” On Smugglers Run
From the beginning, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was billed as a place where new discoveries — from a galaxy far, far away — might be found around every nearby corner. And, thus far, folks’ initial discoveries have dominated reviews of the new, immersive land – everyone is still finding all of the “regular” stuff.
However, one large crew of vloggers recently posted a video-game style mode, which requires a special sequence of button-pushing, etc.
Then, a familiar voice may be heard in the cockpit: “RWAAAAARGH!”
Activating Chewbacca Mode on Smugglers Run
The crew at Fresh Baked reported, “There have been some changes made to Smugglers Run. Minor stuff like software and interface updates. But also some fun stuff. And that’s Chewy Mode. As soon as I heard about it, I had to get into it immediately.
“So I put a crew together and headed over to Smugglers Run in Galaxy’s Edge,” they added. “The basics of Chewy Mode is to trigger Chewy yelling at you during your entire flight. No Hondo. No canisters. Just you flying and chewy yelling at you. But there are some things you have to do in order to make this happen.
“Like a cheat code on the NES.”
Yeah. You remember those codes. Like A-B-A-B, left, right, up, down, START.

They also recruited Best Life & Beyond, ThemeparkObsession:
Join us as we attempt to hack Smugglers Run with what is known as Chewie Mode. Hacking the Millennium Falcon takes a full crew of six and we were recruited along with Youtube’s ThemeparkObsession by our friend David from Youtube’s Fresh Baked Disney. And when this crew gets together for a collab like this one, you know it will get ridiculous.
- 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 finish checking your seatbelts (pull the yellow thingy) and he hits his ok to go button.
Now, these folks pulled off this hack at Disneyland. Here’s hoping Greg and his MickeyBlog.com crew can try this out at Walt Disney World!
