G4-S8[3] was an R-series astromech droid,[2] manufactured by Industrial Automaton.[1] During the First Order's occupation of the planet Batuu in 34 ABY,[4] G4-S8 was displayed amongst a variety of droid parts upon one of the upper shelves of the Droid Depot in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. It had green and white paneling and a black sensor.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

G4-S8 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 states that all R-series droids are manufactured by Industrial Automaton. As Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge depicts G4-SB as an R-series droid, these characteristics must also apply to it.

  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 G4-S8's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
