Incredible.  Can you imagine?

 

 

Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy might have had that description in mind as she toured the R2-D2 Builders area at Celebration Europe this past summer in Germany, where she found one particular "extremely well put-together" little R2 unit that really made an impression on her. Such an impression, in fact, that she hired the two builders responsible to create the R2-D2 that will be featured in "Star Wars: Episode VII."

The first behind-the-scenes photo from the new "Star Wars" film features Kennedy, director J.J. Abrams, and R2-D2 himself, confirming that everyone's favorite astromech droid will be appearing in the sequel. Standing behind R2 are two Englishmen, Lee Towersey and Oliver Steeples, members of the worldwide R2-D2 Builders Club … and the guys who just got the gig of a lifetime.
