Behind-The-Scenes Star Wars Photos Have Headless Wookiees And Amorous Slave Girls

By David Wharton | Published

It’s been a crazy-good week for SF movie photographic awesomeness. It started last Wednesday when we discovered the amazing blog of filmmaker Gavin J. Rothery, which provided our one-two punch of behind-the-scenes photos from both David Lynch’s Dune and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. Now we’re making it a hat trick with a selection of shots taken during the filming of the original Star Wars films. If you’ve ever wanted to see Chewie without his head on, it’s your lucky day‚Ķ

These shots are just some of our favorites from the set which comes via the German website Thaeger. Unfortunately the mangled English provided by Google’s translate function doesn’t provide too much insight into how they came into the site’s possession. Don’t look a gift Gamorrean in the mouth, I guess.

And speaking of the mouths of Gamorreans, Leia’s being awfully loose with her affections for a lady who once used “I’d rather kiss a Wookiee” as an insult.
