R-3PO was a 3PO-series protocol droid with distinctive red plating and a moody attitude. During the Galactic Civil War, it served the Alliance to Restore the Republic in their fight against the Galactic Empire, and when the Alliance established Echo Base on the planet Hoth, R-3PO was tasked with keeping a lookout for spies within the base.[5] The droid was present for the Battle of Hoth, which the Alliance lost, forcing them to evacuate Echo Base.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

R-3PO was a background character in The Empire Strikes Back, where he is in Echo Base shortly before the Battle of Hoth.[2] He also appears in the non-canon video game LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in which he has been reprogrammed as a droid serving the First Order.[6] His name originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity via the Star Wars Customizable Card Game,[7] and was brought into the new canon via Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.[5]
