Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the mysterious Darth Vader.
After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the Rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy the second Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Darth Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
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 »
The original script described R2-D2 as a trash can on wheels. So when I first saw him, I said "Ahh. This guy's perfect. I hope he speaks English."

Anyone who is a fan of Star Wars (and especially someone whose favorite character is R-2) should love this three-part film. Its loving, if stern, treatment of the tempestuous robot gives "the trashcan on wheels" great dimension. There are biographical surprises, such as his family history, that must endear the little guy to anyone but his enemies. This well-written paean to one of filmdom's unique and fascinating characters deserves to be seen as a feature on the big screen, or at least as a television special. I wish there were more installments. Everything from the performances on camera to the narration is professional. Hats off to the creators, to Don Bies, in particular, for his inspiration. Beneath the Dome is witty, funny, absurd, and--amazingly--quite touching. In fact, it is as clever a mockumentary as I've seen.
