  2. 2.0 2.1 StarWars-DatabankII.png B-U4D (Buford) in the Databank (backup link) states that heavy loader droids are 1.75 meters tall. Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia states that heavy loader droids are fifth class droids. As B-R72 is depicted as a heavy loader droid in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, it must also share these characteristics.
  3. Droid Depot has official backstory elements that, while not directly published for the public, are officially canon details that can be obtained verbally from cast members working in the store.
  4. The Star Wars Book dates the Battle of Batuu, which is depicted in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge via the attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, to 34 years after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of A New Hope to 0 BBY, therefore the events of Galaxy's Edge, including B-R72's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
