Just when you think you've seen everything from the original "Star Wars" series, Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew has released a trove of behind-the-scene photos that provide a fresh look at the iconic sci-fi flicks.

The photos, which Mayhew began releasing on Twitter last week, ranged from a teenage Carrie Fisher sunbathing with her stunt double in her Jabba the Hut bikini from "Return of the Jedi" to the unmasking of C3PO and the actors sitting around a table for a script reading.

Mayhew, whose Twitter account is @TheWookieRoars, also added his own captions to each photo.




The 7'2" English actor played Harrison Ford's furry co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon in the original Star Wars trilogy, as well as "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith." 



The Salt Lake Tribune reported in August that Mayhew had been confined to a wheelchair and was preparing to have double knee surgery that would enable him to walk again. 

"Getting up in the morning can be nasty," Mayhew said. "The pain, even with painkillers — sometimes you can't even get out of the chair."
