G8-R3 was an astromech droid in the service of the Royal Naboo Security Forces in 32 BBY. He had the head of an R5-unit on the body of an R2-unit. He was destroyed by a blaster bolt fired by the Trade Federation ships blockading Naboo while attempting to repair Queen Amidala's royal starship.
Behind the scenesEdit
In Star Wars Insider 58's Star Wars Q&A section, Pablo Hidalgo explains that droid names are usually fragments of much longer serial numbers. He uses G8-R3 as an example, speculating that his real name might have been something like "R5-X41238-G8-R3-3124-D2."
