Watch R2-D2 Fall In Love In San Francisco In This Adorable Short

By Alyssa Pereira

It turns out that love prevails — even if you are a droid.

In this video short, which premiered at the Sonoma Film Festival recently, R2-D2 finds the very droid he’s looking for in the timeless love story: droid falls in love with mailbox, droid loses love, droid is redeemed.

*Sigh*. It’s a classic.

The film’s creator, San Francisco engineer and Star Wars fan Evan Atherton, filmed R2 around San Francisco and Berkeley. It was created as something of a tribute, and he probably didn’t expect to evoke such a strong reaction from other fans.

“I think that stems from what always made Artoo special: He was more than just a machine,” he told Mashable. “So seeing that play out, and seeing Artoo really sad, tugs on some childhood heartstrings.”
