Peter Mayhew, the man who spent three Star Wars movie probably sweating away half of his body weight in a Chewbacca costume, must have a wealth of sci-fi history hiding in his Boyd, Texas, home. This weekend, he dropped a bunch of it on the malleable, easily blown minds of the Star Wars fan community.
The pictures cover just about every category of behind the scenes footage. They include moments of the mundane like stars Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill spending what appears to be another sleepless night rehearsing their lines and a couple of prop builders working on a scale model of the Millennium Falcon. There's even some that are oddly alluring such as Chewie getting a little too close to Princess Leia played by Carrie Fisher and an "upskirt" shot of R2-D2.
