    Ep1!!! as a selfless, heroic little droid

    R2 was his truest self at the end of The Force Awakens when he “woke up” & presented the Resistance with the missing piece of the map to Luke’s hideaway. R2 has always been a lifesaver, but he really brought it then.

    R2-D2 is best depicted in A New Hope…I mean come on, if it wasn’t for R2, Leia would never have been able to contact Obi Wan, and never would have been able to store the battle plans. R2 in ANH pretty much made star wars what it is today

    A New Hope – he is carrying the death star plans, finds Princess Leia and rescues them from the trash compactor.

    Empire Strikes Back. That’s the film that gives him a personality outside of “token cute character” and “holder of the McGuffin”. R2’s fun as a companion to Luke on Dagobah, from fuckin’ around in the swamp water to fighting with Yoda for the lamp. It’s the only film in the OT where I didn’t feel that his presence and actions were meant strictly to advance the plot.

    That’s a tough one, and originally I was going to say TESB, but in ROTJ he infiltrates Jabba’s palace knowing full well what his mission is, while his golden companion is clueless to what is really going on. Without R2 being fearless and loyal to Luke, Luke would not have been able to sneak in his lightsaber and save all our heroes from the Sarlacc and help defeat Jabba, so essentially R2 is the real hero.

      Oh man, yeah! I totally forgot about him in the Jabba stuff in RotJ! Sneaky little bastard playing butler on the barge until shit breaks loose.
      Still, though, I think his usefulness meets its end after he leaves Tatooine. He becomes little more than a background character on Endor. Even C-3PO has more to do there. The one time he’s about to do something useful, he gets shot.

        While I agree he shines more in the Jabba sequence as opposed to the rest of the film, I love the part where he zaps the Ewok once freed. R2 doesn’t put up with crap from anyone! He is also the one who frees everyone from the Ewok’s net, albeit only a moment of freedom.

    Empire for sure. R2 sure has a lot more patience during Luke’s training with Yoda than Luke possesses.

    The Empire Strikes Back depicts R2-D2 the best because it showed him at his best as a rebel and as a concerned droid friend.

    A New Hope depicts Artoo the best because this movie gives Artoo the most character. From the first few scenes on Tattooine we learn how focused he is on his mission by separating from his friend Threepio so he can complete his mission. He understands the importance of delivering Leia’s message to Obi-Wan and runs away from Luke putting himself in danger. Not to mention he saves our heroes by stopping the trash compactor and he serves as Luke’s astromech during the Battle of Yavin.

    I think Artoo is best depicted in ANH, where we see him on a secret mission to save the galaxy.

    EP. 3, the oil burning scene… 🙂

    That plucky droid showed his true colors in Episode 4. Running all over the blockade runner, carrying the Death Star plans, wheeling through the desert, stopping the compactor before it killed his friends. Take your pick. 🙂

    I personally like the episode R2 Comes Home from The Clone Wars as it shows us how capable R2 is on his own.

    Episode IV. R2 is just super cool and awesome in that movie.

    Episode vi. He pretty much saved the day with that well timed lightsaber reveal to help Luke save everyone at the sarlacc pit!

  • August 10, 2016 at 7:21 am

    I think R2-D2 is best depicted in Ep.1 because being a astromech droid he saves the queen by repairing the royal starship.

    Episode IV. Everything he did in the Death Star to save his friends. They wouldn’t have escaped the trash compactor if it wasn’t for him.

    Episode IV. his sass to Threepio and utter loyslty to the mission is what put the “spark” in Luke to get moving and lean abou the force and become a jedi like his father.

    Definitely not VII. Episode IV shows R2 the best. Driven by a mission, interacting with the Death Star, tricking Luke into removing the restraining bolts…

    Probably Episode IV. He’s integral to the plot and is the whole reason luke meets Kenobi.

    RAFFLECOPTER NAME: CAROLSUE
    Episode II because he stops Padme from being melted to death. Didn’t want that to happen, right?
