Here are two interesting behind-the-scenes pictures that hint to a deleted scene with R2-D2 from EP1: This scene is still included in the Novel by Terry Brooks (Page 240 in the Hardcover Edition). Shortly before departing from Coruscant; R2 leans too far over the edge of the landing platform and falls off. But moments later he reappears with the help of his extendable jets. These are shown in the picture:
