JB-9[3] was a BB-series astromech droid,[2] manufactured by Industrial Automaton,[1] that belonged to the Droid Depot in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. During the First Order's occupation of Batuu[2] in 34 ABY,[4] JB-9 was displayed alongside fellow astromech droids[2] MB-12[5] and J1-B2[6] in an alcove behind one of the counters in the depot.[2] Standing 0.67 meters tall,[1] it had black and yellow paneling and a black sensor.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

JB-9 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.[7]



Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, New Edition states that BB-series astromech droids are manufactured by Industrial Automaton and stand 0.67 meters tall. Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia states that all astromech droids are second class droids. As JB-9 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 JB-9's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
