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[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 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.

  3. 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 S3-R9's appearance, must take place in 34 ABY.
