Flashback Friday: R2D2 Beneath The Dome

In 2001, starwars.com did a goofy series of webisodes that were a parody of those “E! True Hollywood Story” or “VH1’s Behind The Music” celebrity documentaries. These focused on the rise, fall, and rise again of R2D2.

According to Wookieepedia, this was the brainchild of Artoo’s wrangler, Lucasfilm archivist Don Bies. It was mostly shot while AOTC’s cast was doing featurette stuff for the DVD, plus there are guest appearances from the likes of Steven Spielberg and Richard Dreyfuss.

    I really do love this. Everyone is playing it straight. Success went to his….dome? Good one, Francis.

    I’m shocked these webisodes were filmed in 2001, a mere five years after the first Austin Powers movie. Carrie Fisher looked good in that movie. She really let herself go in this particular five year period (1996-2001).
