Here's a humorous stop-motion animated Star Wars LEGO short that shows us the outcome of one of several "what if" moments. If R2-D2 and C3PO were blown away when they left Princess Leia's ship at the beginning of the movie, there would have been no movie! Luke would have never got the message from Leia regarding Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luckily the Imperial gunners weren't in the mood to blow something up for fun — I, on the other hand, totally would have blown up the escape pod. The video was created by Brotherhood Workshop, and this is the note that came along with it.
In a desperate move, R2-D2 and C3PO flee from Princess Leia's besieged vessel in an escape pod. Unfortunately, a few Imperial gunners have learned to think for themselves.
