Where is R2-D2? From the leaked poster (that turns out is real), to the official teaser for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and other places as well, R2-D2 is nowhere to be found. Is this on purpose? Does R2-D2 play a pivotal role in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga? It would make sense as he was the one who started it all, carrying the Death Star plans in A New Hope. We discuss all the possibilities about R2-D2’s potential role in Episode IX, and why we think he is being hidden from major promotional material thus-far. We also bring back our segment Will of the Force where we answer questions like: Will Kylo Ren be a Sith in The Rise of Skywalker? We close things out by featuring the best of your tweets in Resistance Transmissions!
