How did Han Solo and Chewbacca originally meet?

How did Chewbacca meet Han Solo? 

In the expanded universe books, Han Solo and Chewie first meet on an Empire slave ship while Lt. Solo is employed an Imperial pilot.

Their connection begins when Solo boards a derelict slaving craft to find that its cargo of Wookiee children had escaped and all that was left on board was a severely wounded Wookiee in the pilot’s seat.

Han was ordered to skin the helpless Chewbacca alive but refused. A court martial and an escape ensued as a result of this insubordination. Chewbacca later swore that he owed a life debt to Han and wouldn’t leave his side.

And that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

But that touching story is no longer official canon and is now shelved under the 'Legendary' series of books.

So the question is, will the Han Solo Anthology movie cover how Han and Chewie became best mates? It largely seems to be as a story about how Han And Qi'Ra grew up. It certainly will cover Han and Lando's friendship.

Edit: The movie shows Han meeting Chewie when he is thrown in the 'pit' as food for THE BEAST, a name for which the Imperial Soldiers have named Chewbacca. Han and Chewie quickly form an allegiance.
