A New Droid Named “Chopper” from “Star Wars Rebels” Officially Revealed

television-news-and-talkHappy go lucky R2-D2 is about to meet his match. Chopper is a grumpy, rickety astromech, basically the opposite of R2-D2. This is the latest reveal from Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni today. In an interview with the German movie news website, Movie Pilot, Filoni introduced fans to Chopper.

I have to say I really like the idea of a grumpy droid. Considering they shouldn’t really have any feelings, to have bad attitude seems pretty funny to me. If this is just the beginning of what we can expect from Star Wars Rebels, then I can’t wait to see it. (Source: MoviePilot.de)
