Chewbacca 6ft 9in actor Joonas Suotamo towers over his pregnant wife Milla Pohjasvaara at the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiere

He took on the role of the famous Wookie in the seventh Star Wars installment The Force Awakens, which he shared with 7ft 3in actor Peter Mayhew.

And Joonas Suotamo towered over his pregnant wife Milla Pohjasvaara at the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiere at Cineworld in Leicester Square, London, on Wednesday. 

At 6ft 9in, the Finnish basketball player, 33, certainly turned heads as he took to the red carpet with Milla.

Joonas cut a dapper figure in a tan suit which he layered atop of black polo neck. 

Milla, meanwhile, put on a dazzling display in a plunging white sequinned gown, which sheathed over her blossoming baby bump. 

The couple revealed they were expecting their second child earlier this week when Milla showed off her bump at the California Star Wars premiere. 

MailOnline has contacted Joonas’ representatives for comment.

Joonas seemed an obvious choice to play the part of Chewbacca, Han Solo’s co-pilot and best friend due to his extraordinary height. 

The role of iconic Wookie warrior was originally given to the late 7ft 3in actor Peter Mayhew in the late 1970s.  

However due to Peter’s inability to take part in more demanding scenes a new actor had to be found take on the part for the more physically rigorous aspects.

For his first appearance as Chewbacca, Jonas shared the part with Peter, who had played the part since the film series’ inception.

His part in the seventh installment The Force Awakens was shrouded in secrecy.

But for the eighth installment, Joonas took over the role entirely.

The Rise Of Skywalker is the last film in the nine-episode run of movies that first began in 1977 in with Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. 

The film hopes to tie together the numerous loose ends that have been left unanswered, from the originals to Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi.

While the plot has to mostly be kept under wraps, it can be said that the film sees Emperor Palpatine return, with Rey (Daisy Ridley) and The Resistance trying to find him, while Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is also on the trail.

Before landing the role in Star Wars, Joonas was selling insurance but recently said he ‘wasn’t planning to go back’ as a hint that his future with the franchise is secure.

He graduated in 2008 after playing power forward for his college basketball team.

Milla and Joonas became engaged in August 2017 after the former footballer proposed during a day out in Notting Hill. 

The couple welcomed their first child in February last year. 

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is set to be released on December 19 in the U.K. and December 20 in the U.S.
