MEET THE NEW HEROES:
Fluent in over six million forms of communication, the golden protocol droid C-3PO has become an essential companion to his master Luke Skywalker and to the Rebel Alliance. Since Luke’s uncle Owen purchased the droid from a band of Jawas on Tatooine, Threepio has accompanied Luke and the Rebellion throughout the galaxy in their fight for freedom. He is rarely seen without his squat counterpart, R2-D2, and together, the two make a remarkably capable team. Because of Artoo’s limited communication abilities, Threepio must often iternpert his companions electronic sounds for his human masters. Though preferring to remain far from any potential threat, the anxious droid frequently finds himself in the midst of the action. it is Threepio who first learns of Imperial occupation on Cloud City, but the fearful droid is disabled before he can warn his friends. Later, on the forest moon of Endor, Threepio helps convince the Ewoks to fight alongside the Rebellion in what will be the decisive victory over the Galactic Empire and the beginning of a new era of peace in the Galaxy.
The ever-faithful R2-D2 (Aretoo-Detoo) is a feisty astromech droid of surprising determination and resourcefulness. Communicating in a variety of beeps and whistles, Artoo’s cylindrical body is equipped with multiple instruments and sensors designed to carry out his primary utility droid functions. Along with his tall, golden counterpart, C-3PO, Artoo frequently finds himself coming to the aid of his human masters. Owned by the heroic Luke Skywalker, Artoo is instrumental in leading the young farm boy to the Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi and initiating Luke’s involvement with the Rebel Alliance. Often seated in the droid socket of his master’s X-wing Fighter, Artoo accompanies Luke on his successful Rebel Mission to destroy the Empire’s Death Star, and on his personal quest to train as a Jedi under the tutelage of the wise Jedi Master Yoda.
A Jedi Knight referred to a member of the Jedi Order, who had completed their Jedi training as a student in the Jedi academy, in addition to one-on-one trainings as a Padawan and the completion of the Jedi Trials. As a Knight and a full member of the Order, these individuals received assignments from the Jedi Councils and strove to find peace, and maintain order within the Galactic Republic. Making up the majority of the Order’s members, the public was familiar with this title more than any other, and, thus many addressed any Jedi as “Knight”.
