Wookiee thought wave

Mallatobuck sending a thought wave to her husband

A thought wave was a natural telepathic ability of adult Wookiees from the planet Kashyyyk, allowing them to communicate mentally over great distances.

Around 0 ABY, the female Wookiee Mallatobuck sent her husband Chewbacca a thought wave while he was en route to Kashyyyk, warning him their son Lumpawarrump was in danger. When he received the message, Chewbacca jumped up from his copilot seat in the Millennium Falcon and let out a gigantic roar, which frightened his captain and friend Han Solo.

Behind the sceneEdit

To date, the only appearance of the thought wave is in The Wookiee Storybook, a 40-page children's book published in 1979.
