Did You Know?
A pink astromech unit with a female personality KT-10 is introduced in the Great Heep's harem. Though referred to as an R2 unit in the special, she was given a name in the 1992 book George Lucas: The Creative Impulse. This is not the same droid as R2-KT, created in 2005 for Katie Johnson, the daughter of the 501st Legion costuming group's founder. See more
