The original R2-D2 as used in Star Wars: A New Hope is coming to the Dundee V&A.

The Hello, Robot show will feature the 96cm high iconic robot from Star Wars, which was later re-titled as Episode IV: A New Hope.

The droid was played by British actor Kenny Baker, however, in some scene R2-D2 was moved by remote control or computer animation.

Other memorabilia coming to the exhibition include a 1927 poster for Fritz Lang’s influential sci-fi film Metropolis and androids used in the music video for Bjork’s song All is Full of Love.

The exhibition, “Hello, Robot” will run from November 2 until February 9 at the V&A Museum of Design, Dundee, Scotland.
