Chewbacca Put Up BTS “STAR WARS” Pics: Here’s A Favorite 20 [PHOTOS]
Yesterday’s best Twitter feed was easily @TheWookieeRoars–that being the account of Star Wars legend Peter Mayhew, whose imposing frame (and subtle acting skills) helped bring Chewbacca to life. Peter was feeling a little nostalgic, and went on to post an amazing collection of behind-the-scenes photos from the original Star Wars movies. A few were familiar, but there were also plenty that were new to us.
We’re only posting a mere 20 favorite pics here, because we don’t want to get a 7’2″ guy mad at us for swiping all of his pics–but you’re going to want to be one of his many new followers who’ve jumped on TheWookieeRoars bandwagon. We’ve included his original captions, too, since it turns out that he’s a clever guy. Just remember that “Anthony” is Anthony Daniels (who played–and may still be playing–C-3PO), “Kenny” is Kenny Baker (same with R2-D2), and that we’re getting some references to The Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner. You might also want to prepare yourself for an amazing pic of a certain child actor that totally charmed us.
And while we can understand Peter Mayhew having a Carrie Fisher fixation, we’re not to sure about his thing for naked Banthas. We just wanted to let you know that was going to also appear as a recurring topic here. Now enjoy these pics from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
