Time has taken a toll on the Star Wars Universe, and R2-D2 hasn’t been forgotten. The following photos are an early look at the film’s most important character, R2-D2. R2-D2 is actually responsible for most of the events that take place in the films. Without R2-D2, Padme, Obi Wan, and Qui Gon would have all died before reaching Tattooine. Anakin never would have met Padme, and Luke and Leia would never have been born. So after approximately 50 years strolling around the galaxy with the most important characters in the Star Wars Universe (Anakin, Obi Wan, Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca, etc.) the little guy is starting to look a little beat up. Can we get this guy cleaned up a little, please?
