We all love Peter Mayhew and IGN took some time to chat with our favorite Wookiee actor on the eve of the Blu-ray release. Click here for the full read that not only includes talk of Star Wars but also touches on Mayhew's early career. And to whet your whistle, here's a nice excerpt of Peter saying nice things...
"On working with George Lucas, Mayhew only has nice things to say about the bearded one.
"Working with George is a joy. He's very easy to work with. You'd do a scene and he'd either say 'yes' or he would say 'no' and you'd try it a different way," he says.
He also has much praise for his other directors, Irvin Kershner and Richard Marquand.
"Irvin, bless him, was a very hands on with actors. He gave us plenty of room to develop our characters," he says.
Kershner, who once had to replace Mayhew due to illness, filmed a bunch of scenes with a new actor playing Chewbacca. He eventually scrapped all of those and shot them again once Mayhew's health was back to normal as the other actor's movements just weren't right."

They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
