They came, they saw, they roared like Chewbacca.

USA TODAY asked users of Vine, a video app from Twitter, to share short videos of their best Wookiee roars, grunts and impressions in honor of May the Fourth, aka Star Wars Day. And Peter Mayhew, the man who played the furry co-pilot in the Star Wars movies, would be proud of the quality of the Vines so far.

The videos are being displayed on a RebelMouse page and can also be found by searching for #chewievine on Twitter. Add yours by tagging it with #chewievine on Vine or Twitter!
