It does look pretty good. 

 

At the risk of nit-picking, though, what the heck is a star destroyer doing hovering over a castle *inside* the atmosphere of a planet? 

 

I'm far from a Star Wars expert, but I would have thought that they'd break up in the atmosphere - they're designed to prowl around in deep space, not land on planets.

That was my first thought too (apart from the clumsy reveal at the end), but a quick googling shows that Star Destroyers apparently can hover in atmosphere:



But hey, this is Fantasy, not Sci-Fi so (on reflection) I'm cool with it.

Considering a turtlefrog can lift an x-wing with his mind, I'd assume anything is possible.

Homeboy probably had a really high midichlorian count.

Go Rogue, which is intended to make you buy the tie-in toys.

Well that's original. Murdered out Artoo.

EDIT: Please explain droid naming to me. "R2-D2" looks like an attempt to name a droid with the possibility of only 67,600 name/number combinations. In a galaxy of millions of systems, there's only 1 R2-D2? puzzled.gif

R2 is a classification (astromech droids), not part of a unique identifier, e.g., "that R2 unit doesn't seem to be functioning properly now that the guy inside is dead."
