The BBC has announced that it is teaming up with Disney and Lucasfilm for an exclusive sketch, as part of this year's Children in Need appeal
The BBC has revealed that R2-D2 and C-3PO will be joined by Warwick Davis (who played the Ewok Wicket in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi) for a special, one-off sketch.
The telethon, which has been running since 1980, will air its appeal show on Friday 13 November from 7.30pm on BBC One.
Details about the Star Wars segment are scarce, but the BBC has said that the characters will join Davis and the three will "attempt to find a worthy winner to help trigger the first BBC Children in Need totaliser of the night."
