Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew recently tweeted a variety of revealing and often hilarious behind-the-scenes photos from Star Wars. Mayhew's collection includes candids with a Tauntaun, Carrie Fisher and her stunt double sunbathing, and an early C3PO costume. Not every photo is new, but the collection as a whole paints an interesting depiction of Mayhew's involvement in the legendary science fiction films.

Amidst the furor around Star Wars: Episode VII marketing and rumors, Mayhew's photos are a wonderful way to relive past glories. Check out the entire collection on his Twitter page.
