A woman was filmed pushing Chewbacca at Disney World to scare the character while he interacted with children
A woman was recently filmed pushing an actor playing Chewbacca to scare him at Disney World.
The character, who had been interacting with children, looked stunned as the woman walked away.
An actor playing Rey then said they'd have to leave the area "because of that" incident.
Whether they're small children or grown adults, many Disney fans love to meet their favorite characters. But according to fans, one woman recently took her excitement too far.
A Disney fan named Maria, who goes by @nightmareadventures online, posted a video to TikTok on September 22 that shows Chewbacca and Rey interacting with children at the Galaxy's Edge section of Hollywood Studios in Disney World.
As they speak with the young parkgoers, as seen in the video, an adult woman slowly walks behind Chewbacca, lightly pushes him, and shouts — seemingly in an attempt to scare the actor playing the character.
The video of the incident has been viewed more than 3.4 million times as of Monday morning.
@nightmareadventures Don’t be that adult that ruins a nice interaction between kids and characters because you think you’re being funny. #starwars #starwarsgalaxysedge #chewbacca #chewie #rey #reyskywalker #disneyhollywoodstudios #disneyhollywoodstudiosorlando #disneysgalaxysedge #maytheforcebewithyou #dontbeajerk #disneycharacterinteractions #disneycharacters ♬ original sound - Maria -Travel•Food•Theme Parks
The actor playing Chewbacca seemed stunned by the woman's physical contact and watched her as she walked away. Meanwhile, a Disney employee standing nearby didn't approach but guided the woman away.
Instead, it was the actor playing Rey who left the children she was speaking with and addressed the situation.
"Because of that, we might have to leave the area," she said to the crowd of adults. "So good to see you all."
Rey then approached Chewbacca and said, "Let's move on, alright?"
It's currently unclear if the adult parkgoer faced any consequences after pushing the character.
Maria of @nightmareadventures did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
