R1-J1 was an R1-series astromech droid[3] with green plating and a yellow trim.[2] It stood 1.94 meters tall and, like all R-series astromech droids, was manufactured by Industrial Automaton.[1] During the occupation of the planet Batuu by the First Order[2] in 34 ABY,[4] R1-J1 belonged to the Droid Depot in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. The droid was stood behind railings on a plinth outside the front of the depot alongside fellow droids[2] B-R72, EG-01, L4-R6,[3] and C2-B9.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

R1-J1 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[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Star Wars: R2-D2 Deluxe Book and Model Set states that all R1-series astromech droid are manufactured by Industrial Automaton. Futhermore, Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know states that R1-series astromech droid stand 1.94 meters tall. Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia states that all astromech droids are second class droids. As Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge depicts R1-J1 as being a R1-series astromech droid, it must also share these characteristics.

  3. 3.0 3.1 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 R1-J1's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
