You don’t need to travel to a galaxy far, far away to have an out-of-this world experience.

At the Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim, California, on Thursday, R2-D2 thrilled a young boy in a wheelchair by rolling up to him for some playtime. The fan-made unit sent the Star Wars enthusiast into a fit of giggles, beeping and following his movements as the boy wheeled around the room. The two new friends fell into unison, spinning and wheeling around together in a little dance.
