While fans await the next Star Wars film in 2015, actor Peter Mayhew -- best known for playing Chewbacca -- has been sharing vintage photos from the set of the original films.

The photos aren't stock photos either, they're rare behind the scenes flicks, featuring the likes of George Lucas, Mark Hamil, Harrison Ford, and a lot of Carrie Fisher, aka Princess Leia.

Mayhew was cast as Chewbacca in the 1977 Star Wars, 1980's The Empire Strikes Back, and 1983's Return of the Jedi. And even returned in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith in 2005.
