Chewbacca: Star Wars Actor Tweets Incredible Photos

By: Pam Wright - January 13, 2014

For any Star Wars fan, this is a dream come true.

Peter Mayhew, the actor who portrayed Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies, got all nostalgic Tuesday and decided to tweet behind the scenes photos of the shooting from his personal collection.

Some of the shots are truly incredible and offer a glimpse into the day-to-day filming of the movies.

All the gang are there including Harrison Ford who played Han Solo, Mark Hamill who played Luke Skywalker, and of course there are bikini shots of Carrie Fisher who played Princess Leia.

Oh, they all look so young!

What do you think of these photos?
