This is the adorable moment that the tiniest little Star Wars fan couldn’t contain his happiness at meeting Chewbacca in person.

In the heart-warming clip, the eight-month-old baby gurgles and giggles at the sight of the Star Wars character in the arms of his grandfather Eric Herrholz.

The furry costume-clad actor is seen tickling the little tot’s chin which sets him off in hysterics at the Star Wars launch bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Disney World Resort, Florida.

He then pauses and makes the distinct Wookiee’s signature growl, which was created by Ben Burtt who collected sounds of wild animals, and the child makes a gleeful noise.

Seconds later, the Chewbacca grunts as he observes the infant’s hands and his grandmother Rachel Herrholz can be heard sniggering.

He pokes their little nose and lets out a grumble which sends the child into hysterical laughter.

Eric starts chuckling with his grand-child as the Wookiee’s grunts continue.

He tells his grand-child to let go as he clutches the Star Wars character’s rugged fur coat in the excitement of the encounter.

Meanwhile the loveable Wookiee tries gently pulling his arm away and Eric tries to intervene. 

As the iconic Star Wars theme tune continues, the sci-fi character bows his head and grumbles close to the excitable child as though he is trying to pass on an important message.
