Lee Towersey will visit Comic Con Stockholm as a special guest to R2-Builders Sweden. He is the droid builder fan that got hired by Disney to work with R2-D2 on the Star Wars movies The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi and the upcoming Han Solo film.
He is a long-time member of the R2-D2 Builders Club. In July of 2013, at the Star Wars Celebration Europe, fellow UK-builder Oliver Steeples was showcasing his R2-D2 prop when Kathleen Kennedy engaged him in conversation about the clubs work. Lee and Oliver were subsequently contracted later that year to develop R2-D2 and other droid props for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), due to Kennedy’s recommendation. Lee has since been busy building and operating different Star Wars droids for the films and official events around the world.
Lee will participate in different activities with R2-Builders Sweden during the Con, including signing at the builder’s booth Saturday and Sunday. Lee will also do a panel about Star Wars droids on Saturday, so be sure not to miss any of the many activities including R2-Builders panels this weekend.
