ALL of the Droids you’re Looking For at Galaxy’s Edge

ALL of the Droids you’re Looking For at Galaxy’s Edge

Droids are an integral part of Star Wars and it just wouldn’t feel right without them. In Black Spire Outpost, maybe there aren’t enough interactive droids, but there are quite a few if you look hard enough. But who are they and what’s their story? Some of the droids in the land have actual jobs or functions while most inactive droids serve as set dressing. While not all of the droids have their backstories revealed, many are discoverable via the Play Disney Parks App. Disney Parks Blog provided an introduction with “Meet the Droids of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” but I’m sure if you’re like me, you wanted a lot more information for the other droids in the area.

While this isn’t the definitive listing, and many droids are still unnamed, this is as complete as we can find thus far. While Walt Disney World’s Galaxy’s Edge has a few name variations in that version of the land, below is what has been established for Disneyland Park. We’ll keep updating as we discover more, and if you find any more clues or hints, don’t hesitate to let us know!

Here we go!
