Title: Giant R2 snowman in TO
Post by: Bidderfett on August 23, 2017, 11:41:21 PM
Does any one know what movie they are filming on Coxwell in Toronto? There was a snowy high school scene with a giant R2-D2 snowman on someone's car?
I will try to post a pic. Lol

Finally I can tell you guys!
It was for the Battlefront II commercial.

My shop supplied the toys for it, and I was an advisor on some of it.

Enjoy!

It was great right up till she was wearing armour.  It looked a little big for her.  I was actually hoping for some kind of sweet romantic ending...

I figured they'd at least be on the couch playing together, but I guess they're too star-crossed for that.  :explosion:

This was literally the coolest thing I'd seen in a long time.  Too bad they went so far - i feel like this could have been like that coffee commerical way back where it played out like a story over a long time.

Oh and...
