Chewbacca spent his weekend sharing behind the scenes photos from Star Wars, proving Wookiees get nostalgic too.

Peter Mayhew is the man behind the fur who brought Chewbacca to life in the original Star Wars trilogy. And, lucky for us, he is also a top-notch Twitter user. Last week, Mayhew indulged in a four day photo-posting spree on his account @TheWookieeRoars, sharing behind-the-scenes images from his personal archive of Star Wars shots, each with its own quippy caption from the actor.

Mayhew's (inter)stellar shots of C-3PO and Ewoks unmasked, Harrison Ford's off-camera antics and plenty of Princess Leia give a whole new perspective on this fan favorite franchise.
