Make-A-Wish Foundation and Little Mountain Productions Build Little Boy R2-D2

Here’s a story that will tug on your heartstrings and make you feel so good that you might actually forget about the prequels. At least for a minute. It is a touching tale of a boy and his droid.

Matthew Grammer is a seven year-old who is undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The young boy has had a wish that surely many Star Wars fans have had. He’s always wanted to be R2-D2. It’s kind of a reverse Pinocchio story.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation, along with some big help from Little Mountain Productions of Tulsa, Oklahoma, built him his very own rideable R2-D2. Not only can Matthew fit inside the larger-than-life droid, but it’s got a joystick inside for him to drive it with. It’s also got a big “kill switch” on the outside for his parents – in case he finds himself in a swamp on Dagobah.

The video says it better than I ever could, so check it out. The Force is strong in young Matthew and we hope he recovers soon.
