Kylo Ren is feared throughout the galaxy for his vicious skills in combat and his strength with the Force.

Meet Droid Friends from Star Wars

Enjoy the “Light Side” where you can meet skilled starship mechanic, fighter pilot’s assistant R2-D2 and everyone’s favorite protocol droid, C-3PO.

A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot's assistant droid, R2-D2 formed an unlikely but enduring friendship with the fussy protocol droid C-3PO.

C-3PO is fussy and stubborn — he definitely likes things a certain way. He is fluent in over seven million forms of communication and he can also calculate the odds of survival in any situation. He is fully devoted to his friends and the fight against the First Order.

R2-D2 and C-3PO served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker in turn, showing great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils.
