Must See Vintage Behind-the-Scenes Star Wars Photos from Peter Mayhew’s (Chewbacca) Twitter are Life-Altering

George Lucas and a Star Destroyer

Since early in January,  Peter Mayhew, the legendary actor who portrayed Chewbacca, has been treating us to an unprecedented look behind the scenes of the original three Star Wars films.

So far, he has tweeted out over 100 images and there seems to be no end. Each picture provides us with a rare look at the camaraderie and magic behind those iconic films.

I have culled just a few so as to whet your appetite. The bulk can be seen on Peter’s twitter account @TheWookieeRoars. AND. THEY. ARE. AMAZING.

All Images @The WookieeRoars.


Chewie (Mayhew) and Leia (Carrie Fisher)


Kenny Baker (R2D2)

Han shot first, right?


David Prowse (Darth Vader) & Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) before CGI


Carrie Fisher and an 11 year old Warwick Davis (he played an Ewok before he was in Willow, Dr. Who and The Harry Potter movies)


It’s all about perspective


See what we mean? Perspective, baby

Fun on the set


Last photo. And well worth the wait.
