He looks in remarkable condition for a 70+ year old appliance.

What a surreal dream this must feel to J J Abrams. Being a kid who grew up with Star Wars, and now getting to direct a follow up to Return of the Jedi... I mean, it must be unbelieavable to him.

Indeed. I hope they grime him up for the actual movie and this is just the base prop. There is something just not quite right about a clean and shiny R2.

I wonder who is R2-D2 this time or if he's completely mechanical.

Well, assuming he's still 'part of the family' and residing with Han/Leia/Luke, I imagine they're taking pretty good care of him.

I get what you mean though, I too was struck by how clean he was.

Because that's not the R2 being used in Episode VII apparently. Over at TFN it was found out that, that R2 is a fan made one of some sort, and they are using it as reference.

That's... strange. You'd think some of the actual ones used for the movies would still be around.

You'd think they'd have access to one of the 'real' R2s and not have to rely on a fan-made prop model.

I can't imagine George Lucas would not have at least one R2 unit from the previous movies hanging around.

Wasn't he known for being quite meticulous about holding onto props and stuff?

There HAS to be at least one R2 unit somewhere on the ranch. I almost refuse to believe that they're all gone.

Of course R2-D2 would be confirmed to return for the film before Ford, Hamill and Fisher. Dammit Disney

But seriously it's very heartwarming to see that picture. When we get actual cast photos of the big three's return I will ****ing faint.

Someone was saying it was not the "look" but the new mechanics some fan put on their own made R2 or something. So it may be more looking at the mechanics of it and what it can do. I dunno.

I'm sooo not falling for that anticipation trick again, especially in terms of casting. I'll react properly when an official announcement is released.

Question: Let's say Drew Struzan can't come back, who should take over as the artist for the new posters?

Alex Ross maybe? Somebody from Mondo?

Ya I'm sure they will try to find someone similar to Drew if he can't come back. There is a certain style with SW posters that I'm sure they will want to replicate.
