Star Wars Rebels: Meet Chopper the new Astromech

Star Wars Rebels, the new animated Star Wars series, will introduce a new character. Meet Chopper, a grouchy but loveable Astromech. The new droid is based on the original design of R2-D2 by Ralph Mcquarrie. 


Star Wars Rebels is set "between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, which spans about two decades. The animated series is set "in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape."

Below you wil find the designs and at the bottom a video, which introduces Chopper properly, enjoy!
