Star Wars Cast: May the Force Be with Them, Today & Always

Originally posted 05/01/2014 04:50PM

"May the Fourth be with you."

It's been a busy week for Star Wars fans. First, the cast of the new J.J. Abrams-led installment(s) was revealed. Next, fans were either frozen with waves of warm nostalgia (or carbonite) after seeing their favorite elder cast members nearly 40 years on – or they were thrilled by the possibilities that fresh blood could bring to the franchise. Things were fraught, to say the least.

Well, we're here to prey on your heightened emotions. Whether you're a scruffy-looking nerf-herder or the proud owner of a ship that can make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs (FYI, that's a tricky one: Both of those things refer to the same character!), you'll surely be transported to a time long, long ago by these photos of the Star Wars cast posing with their younger selves.

The universe's most famous Wookiee hopes to be up and roaring again soon.

Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars films, is recovering in a Texas hospital after having double knee-replacement surgery on Monday.

"We have made him bigger, stronger & faster; now if we can just get him out of bed! Taking it slow and steady," his family wrote Tuesday on his Twitter page, one of several updates they have given on his condition.

The British-born Mayhew, 69, who is 7'3" and now lives in Texas, has reportedly used a wheelchair for the past two years. He hopes the surgery will let him walk again.

It was a race to the finish!

Alyson Hannigan and her daughters Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 13 months, were dad Alexis Denisof's biggest cheerleaders as he participated in the Course of the Force relay race at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch in Marin, Calif., on Tuesday.

Denisof, who was dressed in a self-made C-3P0 costume, "walked rigidly" (just like C-3P0!) in the last leg of the race.

"When Alexis rounded the corner, Alyson grabbed the kids and said 'Let's go watch daddy!'" an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "They cheered him on as he finished the relay with the lightsaber."
