So, L3-37. The droid abolitionist and close intimate of Lando Calrissian’s: is she, now, the “mind” of the Millennium Falcon? Lando uploaded her navigational data, but what about the rest of her? Is she who C-3PO talked to in The Empire Strikes Back.


According to the Star Wars Twitter, the answers to these questions appear to be: Yes, yes, and definitely, yes. Look for yourself:

That seems pretty clear to me. The twitter’s comments to another fan seem to confirm it, too:


So, yeah. According to official channels, when C-3PO talks about the Falcon’s dialect in the original trilogy, we’re now meant to assume he’s been talking to L3-37. Was she also the one who told Artoo about the faulty hyperdrive? Maybe. Does every device in Star Wars have a mind of its own? Discuss.
