19 R2-D2 Shirts You’ve Been Looking For – In Memory of Kenny Baker


Published by Tom Misuraca in List                      Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links


I was sad to hear that Kenny Baker passed away last week. For as long as there has been Star Wars, his name has been associated with everybody’s favorite blue beeping droid: R2-D2.

One could argue that the astromech was just a puppet, but I doubt even the best of puppeteers would bring the heart to the character that Mr. Baker did. Decades before performance capture technologies, Kenny Baker brought his character to life from the inside. Even when, in later movies, R2-D2 was CGIed, all his movements and expressions were based on Baker’s work.

Baker also appeared in classic films like Labyrinth, Willow, and my personal favorite Time Bandits. But there is no doubt that he’ll always be remembered as the little blue chirping droid. To celebrate Kenny Baker’s life, I’ve rounded up some fun R2-D2 shirts.
