A slew of guest stars, including T.J. Miller, Ron Funches, and Aisha Tyler, join Conan and Andy Richter in opening up the host’s Star Wars special. All of your favorite supporting characters make a return, lamenting their absence from The Force Awakens in a diner while sharing some jealously against Chewbacca in his corner booth. Dengar, Jango Fett, Oola the slave dancer, and Lando Calrissian all swap banter, while Bib Fortuna awkwardly tries to fit in.
Then Lobot shows up and boy, he’s a d*ck. Conan plays Lobot like that guy from high school who couldn’t get the clue that everybody hated him (I very well could’ve been that guy and still am), cracking wise about the group and attempting to buddy up next to Chewbacca and his lady.
My problem with all of this? Why is Chewbacca loving up a human lady when he’s got an entire family back on Kashyyyk? Is he cheating on his lovely wife this close after Wookie Life Day? For shame, Chewbacca.
There will be more Star Wars on Conan stuff later, including appearances by the entire cast of the show and Harrison Ford’s encounter with Jordan Schlansky. Until then, let’s just hope that Chewbacca was not being a total scumbag in this cold open. I have hope. Also nice to see Dengar get some play.
