Just remember, it’s not wise to upset a Wookiee.

A brand new trailer for the next installment in the Star Wars saga dropped today. Fans got a look at what to expect this Christmas in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, including an appearance by Han Solo, and what looks like Leia getting her hands on a lightsaber.

Everyone’s celebrating the trailer’s release across the Internet today—Twitter rolled out some new Star Wars emoji if you tweet the correct hashtag, and fans have swarmed Anaheim this week for the annual Star Wars Celebration.

Chewbacca, everyone’s favorite Wookiee, got some screentime in the trailer as well, and in honor of the new release, developer Kevin Habich showed off his latest tool for communicating with Chewie when you just don’t speak the same language.

(It must be noted before we move ahead that Habich appears to have misspelled both “Wookiee” and “Chewie.” Please spare him your wrath.)

The “Wookie Translator” is a cute tool for creating odd noises that you can make like you’re talking with Chewbacca. It takes your text and translates it into jumbles of “u’s” and “g’s.” Unfortunately, it only translates short sentences, so it takes forever to church out large amounts of texts into grunting noises.

Wookie Translator

We wanted to try it out ourselves, and translated this story into Wookiee—and yes, I definitely plan on reading the whole thing out loud.
