The fifth season of "Louie" starts today on FX, and what better way to pregame for the premier than with a Chewbacca spin on the opening sequence?

The reimagining comes from Nerdist and places Chewbacca -- Chewie, for short -- in the hustle and bustle of Greenwich Village. He stops for pizza. Saunters a bit. Then, finally swings by the Comedy Cellar for some standup. You almost forget the hairy beast isn't Louis C.K.

And that's all great. But does Chewie also go off on eccentric Twitter rants about Earth and Mars? Or just Kashyyyk?
