Behind The Scenes Chewbacca TCW Footage

Posted By Mike on February 23, 2011

As was previously reported, Chewbacca will be making his debut to The Clone Wars series in the Season 3 finale on April 1. If you're not excited for this, then you most likely stumbled onto our happy little fan site by accident. As for the rest of us, we can't wait! Entertainment Weekly's website now offers up an exclusive behind-the-scenes video of Supervising Director Dave Filoni working with Chewbacca film actor Peter Mayhew in order to get the character design and mannerisms just right. Here's an excerpt from the accompanying article:

?We?ve wanted to have Chewbacca on the show from the beginning,? says supervising director Dave Filoni. ?But the technical side just wasn?t there, until we devoted extra resources into researching how to animate fur when George said Chewbacca had to appear this season.? As part of that research, Filoni and the animation team brought in original Chewbacca actor, Peter Mayhew, to advise how to capture the Wookiee?s movements and gait, although they did not use motion capture or rotoscope techniques. ?When I played Chewie, I was just being myself,? the 7-foot-3 actor adds. ?He has a peculiar walk, because his walk is my walk. I didn?t add anything different.? Filoni adds, ?You can?t have Chewbacca without Peter being involved. His movements and his mannerisms make that character.?

Click here for the the full article and exclusive video to get you pumped up for some TCW Wookiee season finale action! The video does include a short look at Chewbacca's Clone Wars debut along with the "making of" footage.

Another Chewie TCW clip that we reported on yesterday can be viewed here.

As always, we'll be sure to keep you posted when other previews, written or video, become available.

Big thanks to Christian from Entertainment Weekly for the heads up!
