The actor told fans he was feeling “nostalgic” and wanted to share the images. The result is more than any Star Wars fan could hope for.

The pictures range from candid pictures of the cast during off times of filming, to shots of the actors running through their lines during rehearsal. You'll also see Mayhew and other actors before getting into costume, as well as some other behind the scenes shots.

Check out these photos for yourself, and take a look at some of the behind the scenes magic of Star Wars.
