Star Wars Behind the Scenes

Every "Star Wars" fan knows that there were three original George Lucas "Star Wars" movies starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guinness and a bunch of robots such as C-3PO and R2-D2 and colorful alien characters. The series was wildly popular and led to many later reincarnations.

Well, Peter Mayhew played one of those aliens, the lovable 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.
