Chewbacca Speaks English

Peter Mayhew, the man who brought Chewbacca to life onscreen for over 40 years, passed away recently at the age of 74. Chewbacca's unintelligible language made him even more relatable, and his friend and partner Han Solo had one of the best relationships ever to grace the silver screen. This clip from The Empire Strikes Back catches Mayhew speaking English on the set instead of the overdubbed Wookie we've grown to love — giving a rare on-set glimpse of the man in the costume.
