Kennedy Center Honors George Lucas With The Help Of R2-D2

Posted by Dustin on December 8, 2015 at 10:53 AM CST


George Lucas was recognized for his contribution to American culture through the arts on Sunday night at the Kennedy Center Honors celebration but with a bit of a Star Wars twist.

As Lucas, 71, was being feted, the crowd was asked to welcome Star Wars star Carrie Fisher to the stage. But in true Star Wars fashion, instead of Fisher, one of Lucas' most beloved creations, R2-D2, took the stage to project her image.

"I wanted to be there to help celebrate your Kennedy Center honor in person, but hey, since you invented video voicemail, I don't have to be," Fisher joked.
