R2-KT Movie Debut
R2-KT makes her movie debut in Star Wars: The Force Awakens! It was as early as late 2013 when Lucasfilm approached us about the possibility of including R2-KT in the next chapter of Star Wars. Of course we were blown away and went into scramble mode to get KT shipped off to London. R2 Builders Oliver Steeples and Lee Towersey assumed care of KT and sent us weekly updates on how she was doing (mostly flirting with the other droids). So December 18 we were thrilled as a family to go and see our girl on the big screen and join the amazing Star Wars universe. Here you will see some poor resolution photos of the screen showing a few of KT's appearances. There may be more and if you find any send 'em our way. This will have to do until the movie is released on BluRay. But it's a fun game looking for R2-KT and hearing from fans who play "Where's KT?" when they go see the movie. What a beautiful gesture - thank you Disney and Lucasfilm, J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy, and thank you Mary Franklin and Lee and Oliver. You show that the personal stories of people are the real magic of Star Wars. So very proud of the Star Was community and very thankful.
