Trivia

Artoo's bungee jump was performed three times at a real bungee jump attraction located at Fox Studios, Sydney, Australia. The first two times a bungee cord was used, but was not on the third try, which is the footage in the documentary. A special R2 was created for this scene, and was completely destroyed. The emergency room follow-up scene was shot seven months later at Petaluma Valley Hospital, Petaluma, California. See more »

Quotes

Samuel L. Jackson: I'm not so sure if that accent is the real deal. Homeboy's probably from Detroit or something.

Very Well Done and Humorous
14 July 2002 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

A great short-featurette about R2-D2 and his struggles through life outside of Star Wars, what many people dont know is that this is actually a 3 part-documentary available on starwars.com and that the short 5-10 minute portion shown on Fox during the fall of 2001 is just the trailer for it. Any one who likes star wars or likes comedy and has seen star wars should go to starwars.com and see it. It has interviews from other movie figures and star wars actors such as Samuel L. Jackson and Natalie Portman.
