S3-R9[3] was an R-series astromech droid[2] manufactured by Industrial Automaton[1] and owned by the Droid Depot in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu.[2] During the First Order's occupation of Batuu[2] in 34 ABY,[4] S3-R9 was displayed on a shelf of droid parts within the depot. It had silver and white paneling and a black sensor.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

S3-R9 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 all R-series astromech droids are manufactured by Industrial Automaton. Furthermore, Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia states that all astromech droids are second class droids. As Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge depicts S3-R9 as an R-series astromech 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 S3-R9's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
