Disney Ear Review: Chewbacca Ears

FashionEarsta Reviews a Pair of Chewbacca ears from shopDisney

Wyaaaaaa! That’s allegedly “hello” in Shyriiwook, the language of Chewbacca and the other Wookie characters in the Star Wars universe (though some of the growling may have gotten lost in translation)! As we gear up for May the 4th and the rest of Star Wars month, we wanted to write a review of one of our favorite pairs of shopDisney ears, these Chewbacca ears!

These ears are amazing – they’re furry and have little bandoliers just like Chewbacca! And if you have short, curly brown hair like I do, they kind of look like they’re just growing out of your hair…. I love them!

These ears are currently out of stock on shopDisney, but you know how stock is at Disney right now… they could be back any day.

(we’ll update this page if they go back in stock!)

Here’s what the ears look like in real life:


What We Loved

Unique Theme/Style


These ears are unmistakeable – they scream “Chewbacca” (whatever that sounds like in Shyriiwook!)

Ear Shape/Size:


One of the ears on this headband is not quite the same size and shape as the other, but you can’t really tell when the fur is fluffed up!



No signs of stitching or gluing on these ears!



There is no traditional bow on these ears, which we love since it makes them feel more versatile and unisex.



The ears are a bit bigger than many pairs of shopDisney ears, which is nice because they don’t really pinch your head. Plus they they stay put on your head very well – one of my friends wore them for a RunDisney 10k and looked adorable the whole time!



I love the long fur and think that it’s such a unique choice of materials! We got caught in a downpour while my mom was wearing these ears and I was so happy that the fur dried without any damage!



I was pleased that they came in a sturdy box instead of the dreaded blue mailer.

Pricing: $$


These ears are the new “standard” Disney price of $29.99 (not including shipping).

Turnaround Time:


I ordered these ears in December and they arrived 12 days after purchase.

Who would love these? 

FashionEarstas who wish they lived in a Galaxy far, far away! These ears are always a huge hit when I wear them to Star Wars: Galaxy’s edge, with people asking me where I got them.

What Needs Work



Because the headband is fabric-lined, it is a bit slippery. But not terrible, and we appreciate that the tags are a reasonable length for a change!

Where should future FashionEarstas be seen in these ears?

Definitely wear these when you try to trigger the unofficial “Chewy Mode” on Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. If all six crew members in your cabin press the right series of buttons, Chewbacca will say all of the instructions for your flight!

Overall Score: (4.7/5)

I love these ears, and my various friends who have tried to steal them from me over the past few months also love them! shopDisney could make a ton of money by re-releasing these Chewbacca ears, because they are really high-quality and unique!

I hope that you found this review helpful! I’d love to hear what you think of all of our ears! Is there a character we should find a pair of ears for next? Make sure you check us out on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram; chances are you will see our ears in action!
