This article is about the droid who served in the technical pool of Star Tours. You may be looking for Wedge Antilles' droid, which was later renamed R5-G8.
"Now, what have we here? Hmm… Hey, haven't I seen you before? Seems like I'm always fixing this burnout!"
―G2-9T[src]

R5-D2 was a masculine R5-series astromech droid who served part of Star Tours' technical pool until he burnt out in a tour accident and had to have parts replaced by the maintenance droid G2-9T.

BiographyEdit

"Now, was I supposed to weld that logic module positive to positive, or negative to negative? No, no, I'm positive it was negative to positive, absolutely positive."
―G2-9T tries to remember how to install a logic module into R5-D2[src]

R5-D2,[3] served as part of Star Tours' technical pool[4] until he burnt out on a routine flight and had to undergo repairs, including the replacement of his logic module, by the maintenance droid G2-9T in Tomorrowland Starport, though because of the droid's low productivity, it was unknown how long it would take to fix R5-D2.[2] In 4.3 ABY,[5] he was being repaired by G2-9T prior to the departure of Star Tours Flight 45 on an ill-fated flight to the Forest Moon of Endor[2]

CharacteristicsEdit

"Well, I was just wondering if you could tell me where this goes? See, I wasn't really online when they were programming us for logic repairs. Usually I can figure it out, but these old R5's are kinda built backwards, know what I mean? Heh! No, you don't know what I mean…"
―G2-9T asks for advice while attempting to repair R5-D2[src]

R5-D2 was a masculine R5-series astromech droid,[2] a low-cost model of the popular R-series astromech droid line manufactured by Industrial Automaton.[1] He had white plating with a red trim, portions of which were battered and scorched black after the droid burnt out during a routine flight that necessitated him undergoing repairs,[2] and stood 1 meter in height.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Keg-shaped droid damaged on routine flight. With G2-9T doing the repairs, who knows when he'll be back on the job."
―"R5"'s profile in Complete Guide to Star Tours[src]

R5-D2 was created for the 1987 Disney simulator ride theme park attraction Star Tours, where he was featured in the ride's queue at each of its locations, which included each of Disney's resorts excluding Hong Kong Disneyland.[2] Although information on the droid was provided in Complete Guide to Star Tours,[2] he was without a proper designation until an action figure of the droid that designated him R5-D2 was released in 2003 as part of the Disney Parks exclusive Star Wars: Star Tours toy line.[3]
