    This is no big surprise. R2 & 3P0 have been leading the way since 1977. They aren’t service droids, or car building automatauns. They are our friends. We care for them because they care for and help the heros of the sagas.

    Actually, the photo is taken from the set of a public announcement against smoking .. not from the TV Special.
