G4-S8[4] 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,[5] 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[edit | edit source]

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.[6]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  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.
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5 2.6 2.7 GalaxysEdgeLogoMini.png Star Wars: Galaxy's EdgeDroid Depot
  3. Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia states that all astromech droids are second class droids. As G4-S8 is depicted as an astromech droid in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, it must also be a second class droid.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
