Matthew's R2-D2 STAR WARS®Wish Comes True!

Matthew Robot Wish

“ So far beyond what I expected! ”

- Tina, Wish Mom

7-year-old Matthew has been a fan of STAR WARS® since he was a toddler so it was no surprise to his family when Matthew wished to be R2-D2, the famous droid from the Star Wars movies.

Matthew’s unique wish of becoming a robot was granted by Make-A-Wish® Oklahoma. The life-size, drivable R2-D2 was designed and built by Little Mountain Productions, a local prop and set design company. Matthew was very excited when he first saw his very own robot which was presented to him at a Star Wars themed pep rally hosted by Bishop Kelley High School students. The students performed a Star Wars skit in which R2-D2 (aka Matthew) saved the Princess! Matthew’s wish was unique, extraordinary and “out of this world” for a little boy who has been battling cancer for the past two years.

“It’s a pretty unique wish. It was absolutely incredible…so far beyond what I expected,” said Matthew’s mother, Tina.
