The Droids Re-Animated is a series of reference articles on the StarWars.com blogs. Written by Abel G. Peña and Rich Handley, it was initially conceived by the two in c. 2003, and finally published "after a decade of marinating."[1] Part 1 was released on June 13, 2013[2], and Part 2 was released on July 5, 2013[3].

The articles detail the adventures of C-3PO and R2-D2 in the years between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, as first told in Star Comics' 1986 Star Wars: Droids comic series, Nelvana's 1985–1986 Star Wars Droids animated series, and Dark Horse Comics' 19941997 Star Wars: Droids comics. Other reference works, such as C-3PO: Tales of the Golden Droid and The New Essential Guide to Characters, have also been drawn upon.[2]

Peña and Handley have introduced new Star Wars canon via the articles, such as previously-unrevealed species, starship, and character names; specific chronology regarding the droids' transitions from one master to another has also been established.[2] Some new canon, such as the character of Sonko Fromm, originated in a children's book simply titled Droids that was published by Plaza Joven exclusively in Spain.[4] Peña and Handley have also related some of the droids' adventures to other works of Star Wars literature, such as the 1992 young readers' novel The Glove of Darth Vader.[2] In addition to introducing new canon, Peña and Handley also expanded on previously established events. For instance, the blog's first part specifically identified the Lok Revenants as the pirate group that attacked the Tantive IV in the Maramere system and thus forced the Alderaanean corvette to abandon the droids, when they had previously been unnamed.[2]

Part 1 definitively establishes the Star Comics as taking place chronologically prior to the animated series.[2] Peña and Handley originally had them reversed, but they changed their minds after Peña discussed the timeline with some members of the Jedi Council Forums.[1][4] Some major last-minute reshuffling was required.[1] Part 2, implied to be the final entry, also confirmed the canonicity of the MyComyc serials Sabotaged Droid and Troublesome Outing.[3]
