So, we’ve had this on our to-do list for the best part of six weeks, but it kept getting pushed back… news, huh?

But we figure it’s still well worth posting because, well, it’s brilliant.

The clip below was posted by Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew on Twitter and features the actor filming on Empire Strikes Back before he was dubbed over with various growls and roars and has him shouting at Harrison Ford (Han) and, honestly, it has us laughing out loud.

You think you know your Star Wars quotes? Well, we promise you do not.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
