Chewbacca tweets great old 'Star Wars' photos

Peter Mayhew, who brought us the lovable character Chewbacca in the "Star Wars" films, has shared some great behind-the-scenes images captured while the actor was part of the iconic franchise. The Wookie has a great eye for historical photography.

Mayhew took to Twitter on Tuesday night under his handle @TheWookieRoars, and started things off with the hashtag #nostalgic. Over the next few days, he tweeted photographs of himself along with "Star Wars" creator George Lucas and co-stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fischer. Darth Vader, Yoda, C-3PO, Obi Wan Kenobi and some memorable sets and props are also seen.

For some reason, pictures of a bikini-clad Princess Leia drew the greatest response from "Star Wars" fans monitoring Mayhew's feed. And the actor's wit in writing captions for the images is evident throughout.
