The last Galaxy of Adventures short gave us a look at how Han Solo was the TRUE hero of A New Hope, saving Luke Skywalker from the incoming TIE Fighters lead by Darth Vader during the Battle of Yavin, but this new short may prove that there is another true hero in A New Hope, or perhaps a pair of heroes, R2D2 and C-3PO

This clip shows the iconic scene where Han, Luke, and Leia are about to get crushed to death by the Death Star’s trash compactor until 3PO and R2 come in at the last moment and save their lives.

Some could argue that R2 is the real hero here, but when it comes down to it, 3PO played an important role as well. If he didn’t have the comm link, our heroes would have been turned into space gunk.

Make sure to follow Star Wars Kids on YouTube or search Galaxy of Adventures right here on Star Wars Time for all of the fun shorts that have released so far.
