These were the droids EW staffers were looking for

Wednesday has welcomed many a special salute from fans and stars alike in honor of Star Wars day, but something tells us franchise favorites R2-D2 and C-3PO have been a little tied up.

The lovable droids traveled from a galaxy far, far away for a surprise stop at the EW offices, shocking staffers with a hilarious elevator ride. As usual, R2-D2 stayed relatively silent during the lift, but C-3PO was plenty chatty. “I do believe they think I am some sort of god,” he quipped — a line from Return of the Jedi.

BB-8 was unfortunately absent, but something tells us Jacob Tremblay will still be super jealous. Watch EW staffers’ reactions in the video above.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is available now on Digital HD and Blu-ray.
