I got the heads up from Kristina today that Paramount purposefully but an R2D2 cameo/easter egg in the new Star Trek movie. Did you see him in there? I certainly didn’t… but now I’m going to be looking for him the next time I go (probably tomorrow night).
Paramount has even made a contest out of it. Find R2D2 and you could win an official prop from the movie.
MTV gives us these details:
There’s really not much more to tell you. The rules are pretty simple. Locate R2, write down where you saw him in an e-mail, and shoot it off to email@example.com with “STAR TREK Easter Egg Sweepstakes” in the subject line. I couldn’t care less about winning the prop, but it would warm this “Star Wars” geek’s heart to see the plucky little droid pop up in a “Star Trek” movie. Maybe J.J. will figure out a way to kill off Jar Jar for his second “Trek” go-round.
Know where R2D2 is? Did you see him when you saw Star Trek? Let me know either way.
