Who still knows R2D2, the cute little robot from Star Wars? An irreplaceable helper on board the spaceship who, together with Luke Skywalker, takes on the fight against Darth Vader and the Death Star – and spreads a whistling good mood. He actually only communicates with whistling tones that nobody can understand – except for his robot friend C-3PO, which can always be found next to the small, barrel-shaped R2D2 with a shiny golden shine, slim and upright, and translates its whistling tones into an understandable language. The two make a perfect duo and provide variety and many beautiful moments.
