May the fourth be with you! It’s Star Wars day! I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, but I thought I might take a stab at some trivia that perhaps some don’t know. We all know and love R2D2. He communicates with beeps and whistles right? Actually in the original 1974 draft of the very first movie, R2D2 actually spoke English. Yes, full sentences. Not only that, he was not nice. In fact he was sort of a bully. In the dialog he often berated his droid counterpart C3PO. Saying things like “You’re a mindless, useless philosopher,” and “You’re nothing more than a dim-witted, emotion-brained intellectual. Why you were created is beyond my logic systems.” Wow, talk about cranky. Glad they decided to replace his voice with the beeps and whistles. He may still be a jerk, but only C3PO and other droids who can understand him know it.
