Star Wars geeks claim that R2-D2 was inspired by a character in a Kurosawa film plus the robots in Silent Running plus an overheard request from a sound editor. Riiiight. Here’s the real score: In 1975 George Lucas invented a Time Machine and fast forwarded himself to 1999. Then he saw an episode of Family Guy. Then he saw Stewie. Then he went back home and watched a bit of Monty Python. Then he created R2-D2. The end. You guys want proof?
