EG-01[3] was a GNK-series power droid[2] manufactured by Industrial Automaton[1] with green plating. During the occupation of the planet Batuu by the First Order[2] in 34 ABY,[4] the power droid was displayed alongside several other droids on a plinth behind railings located outside of the Droid Depot in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

EG-01 first appeared as a prop within the themed land Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge,[2] which opened to guests at Disneyland Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios Park in 2019.[5]

Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded establishes that all GNK-series power droids are manufactured by Industrial Automaton. Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia states that power droids are second class droids. As Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge establishes that EG-01 is a GNK-series power droid, it must 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 EG-01's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
