CH-83[3] was a BB-series astromech droid with a black sensor and green, gray, and white paneling.[2] As a member of the BB-series, it was manufactured by Industrial Automaton and stood 0.67 meters tall.[1] In 34 ABY,[4] during the First Order's occupation of the planet Batuu, CH-83 was displayed among droid parts on one of the shelves inside Droid Depot, a store in Batuu's Black Spire Outpost.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

CH-83 appeared as a prop within the themed land Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge,[2] which was opened to guests at Disneyland Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios Park in 2019.[5] The droid was first identified in 2021[6] when a wind-up toy of the droid was released as part of the Droid Depot toy line.[3]



Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, New Edition states that BB-series astromech droids are manufactured by Industrial Automaton and stand 0.67 meters tall. As CH-83 is shown to be a BB-series astromech droid in GalaxysEdgeLogoMini.png Star Wars: Galaxy's EdgeDroid Depot, these characteristics must apply to it as well.

  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 CH-83's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
