RETURN OF THE JEDI REVIEW - "AT THE MOVIES" 1983

Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel reviewing ROTJ. Including very 80s commercials.
Don't forget to watch the second video, during which the duo defends Star Wars in a discussion with a third film critic.  popcorn

At the very end of the first video, Roger Ebert mentions that R2-D2 is inspired by the drones in Silent Running (1972).

I just had to google that....see for yourself.

Maybe not exactly R2's, but to me the drones in Silent Runing look like they could well be Power Droid's ancestors.
