"Don't you call me a mindless philosopher you overweight glob of grease!"
ho would have thought that a foul-mouthed and mischievous astromech and a prim and proper translator droid would be the best of friends? Yeah, R2 and C-3P0 may squabble but they always have each other's backs. While they may not be on the front lines, they were instrumental in pulling off the most seemingly impossible assignments. Not to mention providing some of the best comic relief.
They have appeared in all 9 Saga films as well as Rogue One, Rebels, The Clone Wars, and we cant forget all of the novels and comics! Speaking of novels and comics, this list contains a handful of the dynamic duo's best appearances in the extended universe.
Our team is hard at work building out this collection. Stay tuned!

The Courtship of Princess Leia
You know those novels your mom always had by her bedside, the ones with half-shirtless Fabio embracing a dainty lady in a thin gown? Well this is kind of like that, but Star Wars style. Han finds out that Leia has arrangements to marry another man for political reasons, but he’s not having it. His plan? Kidnap Leia so she can’t get married to anyone else. That’s romantic, right?
Darth Vader and the emperor are dead, but the Empire lives on, and the Alliance must continue to struggle with dwindling supplies of cash and resources. Princess Leia, seeking new allies to bring into the Alliance and a new planet as home for the influential refugees of Alderaan, considers a proposal that could tip the balance of power against the evil Empire. The Hapes consortium, a cluster of 63 high-tech worlds, is ruled by the Queen Mother. She wants Leia to marry her son, the dashing and wealthy Prince Isolder.
When Han Solo hears the news of Leia's impending nuptials, he reacts with shock. Han has always dreamed of marrying Leia. Yet, in spite of his heroic exploits, he feels she sees him as nothing more than a rogue and a pirate, unworthy of her hand. Now he makes a desperate last gamble to win her back. Tricking Leia into accompanying him, Han flees with her to the beautiful and untamed planet Dathomir, where he hopes to win her heart.
Fearing the imperious queen's reaction to Han's rash move, Luke Skywalker forms an unlikely alliance with Prince Isolder to track down the runaways. Luke has been traveling the far reaches of the galaxy in search of the scattered lore of the Jedi Knights. But when he, Artoo, and Isolder set off to Dathomir, Luke does not suspect that he is beginning an adventure that will lead to the discovery of an awesome treasure, a group of Force-trained "witches"...and a showdown with an invincible foe.
