Peter Mayhew’s Fascinating Photos From the Set of ‘Star Wars’


It could well be that I am the most hopeless of fanboys, but honestly, it doesn’t matter how many times I see Star Wars — it’s still awesome. As such, you can imagine how excited I was when a bunch of previously unseen photos from the sets of the initial trilogy surfaced over the weekend. The pictures were taken by Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca, and you can click through to see a selection of them, which Mayhew shared on Twitter. (It seems that, like every other heterosexual male circa 1984, he had something of a crush on Carrie Fisher.)
