  Name: R2-D2                                                                         
  R2-D2 (called R2, or "Artoo" for short), is a fictional character in the Star       
  Wars universe. R2 is one of the only four characters - the others being Anakin     
  Skywalker/Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and droid companion C-3PO - to appear in     
  all six Star Wars films.                                                           
  The original R2-D2 chassis was specially created by Australian firm Petric         
  Engineering and was precision made to a high standard with small tolerances. R2-D2 
  was played by Kenny Baker in five of the six Star Wars films, (though credited     
  with appearing in Revenge of the Sith, he never filmed any scenes)                 
  with many scenes filmed using mechanical and computer-generated imagery (CGI)       
  versions of the character.
