R2-D2 Dancing With Boy in Wheelchair Is All Kinds of Awesome

Subscribe to TheFW on

As excited as you probably are for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s nothing compared to the excitement this kid has about meeting R2-D2.

At last week’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, Calif., an R2-D2 robot saunters over to a boy in a wheelchair. The two proceed to spin around and around in a sweet and cute dance that even those on the dark side will enjoy.

You can hear the boy laughing and why not? He’s having a great time, as any Star Wars fan would when getting this up-close and personal with an icon.

About the only thing missing would be if C-3PO tapped R2 on the shoulder (does he have a shoulder?) and asked to cut in to give the boy an even bigger thrill.
