FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - A visitor from a galaxy a far, far away made a stop in Fort Wayne on Monday night.

A replica of the Star Wars robot R2-D2 made a guest appearance at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana event.

The theme was Star Wars, and a number of the Littles were able to meet R2-D2 and dress up as their favorite Star Wars character.

Kurt Zimmerman of Fort Wayne owns the replica robot, and brings it to many children's fundraisers around the area.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters also used the Star Wars night to promote awareness for those kids looking for Bigs.
