"The White Witch" is the first episode of Star Wars: Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Written by Peter Sauder and directed by Ken Stephenson, the episode originally aired on ABC on September 7, 1985. It served as the pilot episode to the series.

Plot summaryEdit

After being jettisoned over the deserts of Ingo by an unscrupulous former master, C-3PO and R2-D2 are taken in by landspeeder racers Jord Dusat and Thall Joben. When they accidentally discover the location of the Trigon One, a secret weapon created by the criminal Fromm Gang, Jord is kidnapped by Tig Fromm in order to silence him. Joined by Rebel spy Kea Moll, the droids assist Thall in rescuing Jord from Fromm's secret base, destroying much of Fromm's droid army in the process.

Behind the scenesEdit

"The White Witch" was released on VHS twice; in the US, it was released in 1990 by J2 Communications as part of their "The Star Wars Trilogy Animated Collection", where it was featured on the Volume 1 "Special Double-Length Edition" cassette along with "Escape Into Terror". The second VHS release was in the UK. However, it has yet to receive an official DVD release anywhere.

This episode was adapted into the children's storybook entitled The White Witch: A Droid Adventure. The title of the episode may be a reference to Jadis the White Witch, who is the chief villain of C.S. Lewis' novel The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
