Kenny Baker, R2-D2 in Episodes I-VI, has passed away


Today is a very sad day for Star Wars fans. Kenny Baker, who played R2-D2 in Star Wars Episodes I-VI, has passed away. He was 81 years old. I had the pleasure to meet Kenny several times over the past few years and he was the kindest. The news comes from Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hildago this morning:


We would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to Kenny’s family at this difficult time. The Force will be with Kenny, always.
