Captain Marvel Cat Name Change Explained by Directors

If you're eager to see Captain Marvel and have been keeping up with all the updates leading to the movie's March 8th release, you're probably already well aware of this; Goose the cat is going to be one of the major breakout stars of the movie. If you're familiar with the Captain Marvel comics, you know that Carol Danvers' cat was originally named Chewie, as in Chewbacca of Star Wars fame. Goose - or rather, the four cats who play Goose - rock the new name and make it their own, but I couldn't help but wonder, why switch the name to begin with? Especially considering the Star Wars brand is also under the Disney umbrella.

During a recent press day for Captain Marvel, I got the chance to sit down with directing duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and posed that exact question to them. Find out what they said in this clip and be sure to keep an eye out for the full interview coming soon!
