The Story Behind R2's Name

Some may know where R2-D2's name came from, due to it's fairly common film-jargon, but if you don't, it's quite interesting! The little Astromech's name is short for "Reel #2 of the Second Dialogue track."

In addition, George Lucas's early film, THX-1138 is also referenced in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, when Luke Skywalker says that he's transferring Chewbacca to cell block "1138."
