Undeniable Fact About AOTC #21: It Brought Artoo & Threepio Together


Artoo and Threepio might have “first” met in TPM but it was brief and Threepio stayed behind on Tatooine while Artoo got to go have fun the rest of the movie.

In AOTC they’re reunited on Tatooine, go off on their first adventure on Geonosis, and remain together the rest of the saga (thus far). I always thought it was kind of charming how the droid duo were family heirlooms; Artoo was Padmé’s and Threepio was Anakin’s. The wedding ceremony at the end not only made Anakin and Padmé husband and wife, it also made the droids mechanical stepbrothers. In ROTS you can see that Anakin and Padmé gave each other their respective droids. Artoo serves as Anakin’s buddy and co-pilot, while Threepio is in Padmé’s service.

So much feels!

    Stepbrothers …. never thought about that …. nice !

    Btw, I thought 3PO was funny in AOTC and not a bit more “annoying” than in TESB.

    Love your take on this LP! Very sweet and revelatory. Never thought about it quite this way. But yes – they were participants in the wedding of the mellinnium and they were both members of the family(ies).
