|Carrie Fisher caught at just the right moment|
Every "Star Wars" fan knows that there were three original George Lucas movies starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guiness and a bunch of robots such as C3PO and R2D2 and colorful alien characters. The series was wildly popular and led to many later reincarnations.
Well, Peter Mayhew played one of those aliens, the loveable Chewbacca, and he collected a lot of shots behind the scenes.
Now, not all of these are necessarily from Mayhew, but enough are that we wanted to give him credit. He's posted a bunch of them on his verified Twitter account, so he wants them seen.
We see some shots of the original Tunisian set. To this day, many of the relics from that set still lie in the Tunisian sun where they were when these shots were taken, slowly wearing away.
