Here's the statement (below):

Despite the mother/daughter duo's fame, no celebrities will be giving a eulogy at the private service held at Fisher and Reynolds' Beverly Hills compound. In case you forgot, the pair were next-door neighbors.

R2-D2 Creator Tony Dyson Found Dead At Age 68 — Read The Sad Report

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad SadStar Wars

no title

So sad.

According to reports, Tony Dyson — who built Star Wars droid R2-D2 — is dead at the age of 68.

Dyson's body was discovered in his home on the Maltese island of Gozo after friends told police they hadn't seen him for a number of days.

Police are investigating, but there is no immediate suspicion of foul play — and he is believed to have passed away from natural causes.

Back in the 1970s, Dyson was working at the White Horse Toy Company in the U.K. when he was hired to build eight different versions of the beloved droid for George Lucas' Star Wars films.

He also worked on visual effects on films like Superman II, Dragon Slayer, and the James Bond movie Moonraker.

What an impressive career! Our hearts go out to Dyson's loved ones at this time.

ICYMI: George Lucas Called Disney 'White Slavers' After Seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersDisneyStar Wars

Dayum, George!

When he first saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens, George Lucas' official statement was that he thought the fans would like it. While that didn't exactly sound like he himself was enthused, it wasn't out-and-out shade.

But THIS on the other hand…

In an interview with Charlie Rose that originally aired Christmas Day (hence it going under the radar), the director laments selling his creation to Disney.

He seems very upset that the Mouse House — after paying him over $4 billion for the franchise rights — chose not to use his ideas for the next films.

George even jokes that he sold his "children" to "white slavers." He must HATE The Force Awakens, which he refers to as "retro."

What do YOU think??

Would George Lucas have made a better Episode VII??
