Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

C-3PO, R2-D2 and BB-8 are on a special mission to the desert planet of Tatooine for the Resistance, but between befriending banthas and cheering on pod races, (sic) BB-8 and R2-D2 are having a hard time focusing. What's a droid to do but have some fun in the sun? It's a good thing everyone's favorite protocol droid is on hand to keep the mission on track. But one thing is for certain, C-3PO does not like sand!

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Sometime after the Escape from Jakku, C-3PO, R2-D2, and BB-8 arrived on Tatooine. The protocol droid voices his reservations, and states they should scan the planet and return to the Resistance. They meet a ronto, and then move on. The astromech droids go in one direction while C-3PO is speaking about the mission, but he is startled by a rumbling. The droids then spot a podrace.

BB-8 then goes off by himself, but races back to them to avoid Jawas. R2 then shocks one of them. The astromech droids play in the sand while 3PO insists they need to continue with their mission. After a bantha charges by, they return to the ship.

  1. 1.0 1.1 Amazon favicon.png Star Wars C-3PO Does NOT Like Sand! (A Droid Tales Book) on Amazon.com (backup link)
  2. C-3PO Does NOT Like Sand! takes place some time between Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places The Force Awakens in 34 ABY and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary places The Rise of Skywalker one year later, or 35 ABY. Because C-3PO Does NOT Like Sand! takes place between these two films it must take place in between 34 ABY and 35 ABY.
