Chewbacca had Bigfoot Protection While Filming Star Wars VI
Peter Mayhew, who plays Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies, had to be accompanied by crew members wearing bright orange suits while filming scenes set on Endor. Why? Because they film the scenes in the Pacific Northwest, and they didn't want anyone to mistake him for a Bigfoot!
I guess that is good, wouldn't want anyone to see a "Bigfoot" that was really Chewbacca on the set of Star Wars VII. They also didn't want anyone to mistake Mayhew for a Bigfoot and then shoot him. I guess that's good, too.
