Eee oo eep eeooo will say R2-D2 once again because he is coming back for Star Wars: Episode VII!

According to Deadline, Disney have confirmed the news saying that the character "will indeed be in the film" although the photo that appeared online last week of the robot with JJ Abrams, who will of course direct the film, may have given the game away.

R2-D2 has appeared in all six Star Wars movies and to be honest, it just wouldn't be the same without him.

I keep on referring to the hoover look-alike as male, why is that? Do you? Let us know below, and while you're at it tell us, what other classic characters would you like to see make a comeback in the seventh Star Wars installment?
