Ruwee Naberrie was a human male from the planet Naboo. A member of the Naberrie family,[2] he was the father of Sola Naberrie and Padmé Amidala.[3] Amidala, the queen and later senator of their homeworld in the Senate of the Galactic Republic, was born under the name of Padmé Naberrie.[4] During his lifetime, he was also a friend of Senator Onaconda Farr of Rodia.[5]


Early lifeEdit

Ruwee Naberrie, member of the Naberrie family, married a woman named Jobal at some point of his life at Naboo and they have two daughters, named Sola[source?] and Padmé Naberrie.[6] Through his elder daughter, he became grandfather of Ryoo and Pooja Naberrie. When Padmé turned fourteen years, she was elected Queen of Naboo and adopted the name of "Padmé Amidala".[6]

Death of PadméEdit

Three years later, following the end of the Clone Wars and the execution of Order 66, Ruwee, Jobal and Sola attended the funeral of after her death at Polis Massa.[1]


The same year of Padmé's passing, Ruwee became grandfather of both Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa.[1] He later became great-grandfather with the arrival of Ben Solo, son of his granddaughter Leia and smuggler Han Solo.[7]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ruwee Naberrie was portrayed by Graeme Blundell in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[8][9]

During the filming of Attack of the Clones, Blundell traveled to Lake Como, Italy in order to shoot his scenes as Ruwee Naberrie,[9] but all his scenes were deleted from the film's final cut. His scenes at the end of Revenge of the Sith, however, remained unchanged and make it into the finished version of the film.

Prior to the Star Wars canon reboot by The Walt Disney Company in order to explore new storylines in anticipation of a Sequel trilogy, Ruwee Naberrie's backstory was expanded upon in many expanded universe stories, but since the reboot of the canon, these stories became part of the Star Wars Legends continuity and are therefore non-canonical.
