Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I mean, all he did in the movies is wear the suit and do the physical acting. There was no dialogue or anything as that was all added afterwards using sound effects, so in what way did Peter Mayhew guest star as Chewie in the Clone Wars?!

    PS. Sorry if this is a bit of a dumb question and the answer is staring me in the face:)

    He allegedly made some of the noises, claiming that he'd learned how to do it after playing Chewie for so long. He also advised the animation team on how to make his gait etc. convincing.

    I watched the S3 DVD extra that covers his participation. "Guest star" is an extremely generous description. He was more like a guest adviser.
