While there are plenty of droids out there who can talk, R2-D2 is a special breed in that we never actually know what the little fella is saying. Part of what makes him such a fun character are all those beep sounds and head turns he makes. We get little crumbs of what he says when we hear the reactions of those he’s communicating to. It’s kind of like when Lassie would say something to his master and the master would say “you’re saying there’s trouble on the bridge Lassie?” But what if we could actually know what R2-D2 is saying?
Auralnauts, the creators behind the hilarious video of Kylo Ren reacting to the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer, have put together a reel of every single scene where R2-D2 speaks in Star Wars: A New Hope and dubbed over his lines with dialogue. It adds a whole new perspective to the droids personality and his interaction with various characters. For the record the video doesn’t go over the top. It’s actually quite realistic which one should appreciate.
