This new character section is a little bare, so who wants to talk about R2 D2 (Artoo Deetoo)?
From http://www.starwars.com/databank/droid/r2d2/ |
A resourceful, spunky and adventurous astromech droid, R2-D2 has saved the day time and again. His little .96-meter tall frame is packed with all sorts of tool-tipped appendages that make him a great starship mechanic and computer interface specialist. It's his bravery, however, that has made him an invaluable asset to his owners and friends.
If you have the 'Attack of the Clones' DVD, the second disc has a spoof documentary on R2 D2's career as an actor called 'Beneath the Dome'. It is very funny: he was a waste bin in 'The Godfather', interviews with co-stars, that type of thing.
