When George Lucas decided to set one of the battles on the home planet of the Wookies, he had no idea how much work it would take. In Star Wars, Kashyyyk is the home planet of the furry Wookies like Chewbacca. One source says that one live-action scene alone pushed the entire filming of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005).
This Revenge of the Sith webisode below explains how much work went into the costumes and what it was like for the eight actors (Michael Kingma, Axel Dench, Steven Foy, Julian Khazzouh, James Rowland, David Stiff, Robert Cope, Peter Mayhew) to look like an army of Wookies for the battle scenes.
Plus, we get a great story by actor Peter Mayhew (the original Chewbacca) on why being big meant he had to be kind.
