STAR WARS REBELS: Meet New Droid Character, 'Chopper'

The second new Star Wars Rebels character we get a look at is a grouchy Astromech droid named Chopper - but don't expect another R2D2, apparently this little fella packs quite an attitude. There's also a video interview with the animators.

"Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.

But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes."


Star Wars Rebels will be with us sometime this year.

Chopper! Sic balls!!
Glad to see Star Wars embrace more mature more high brow science fiction while having nothing whatsoever to do with selling kiddies lots of plastic toys.

Love that they are pulling from existing concepts for these characters instead of making a bunch of new Jar Jar stuff. Episode 4 and 5 are the guide.

He does kind of look like an asshole

@Hela - No, we are not.
ndwwrestler2 - 1/27/2014, 5:37 PM
The name "chopper" bothers me. But I like the idea of an A-hole droid.
JorL5150 - 1/27/2014, 5:58 PM
@helagood-
was thinking the same thing!
JorL5150 - 1/27/2014, 6:07 PM
they should just put "bender" in it.

^ Obligatory.

Could be cool. Hope his personality doesn't end up too much like T3-M4, from the Old Republic games.

I like the idea of this character, but I'm looking forward to seeing the characters Filoni is bringing back from TCW (he said it would happen).

The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now 7-Zark-7 is the master.

Starwars.com just posted the video on their site AND they say that Chopper's number is C1-10P, AND they they posted a slideshow that includes a picture of the upcoming Hasbro toy figure of Chopper...
JorL5150 - 1/28/2014, 3:25 AM
An action figure?
I'm shocked
Alfredo27 - 1/28/2014, 7:56 AM
is he another 1 of a kind robot like C3po or Rd2d? Star Wars is weird as no one mass produces designs of utility drones they are like all hand crafted one of a kind devices. Episodes 1-3 [frick]ed up what was such a good universe and raped in through its mouth and out its ass.

@WackyBantha

See, I told you those plastic toys wouldn't be far on the horizon.I'm too old for this infantile crap.
JediPhilosopher - 1/28/2014, 11:49 AM
I guess they're making the mistake I knew they'd make: try to make people love droids who aren't R2D2 and C3PO. Force be with'em but I don't think it'll work.
JediPhilosopher - 1/28/2014, 11:51 AM
Unless.. They should have a prostitute droid retasked as sidekick-copilot (but still retaining some of her previous tendencies :P )
JediPhilosopher - 1/28/2014, 9:45 PM
Alfredo27, I see it this way, most of the droids in the Star Wars universe are old models that just work well enough to keep around even though there may have been advancements in newer models. People would rather just buy the older model and maintain it as needed. It's how more people in our real world would live if they'd come to their senses and live within their means.

@Brady1138: I like the idea of this character, but I'm looking forward to seeing the characters Filoni is bringing back from TCW
I hear that and immediately I'm thinking: Ahsoka. :) One can hope. Carbonite. Please let her be in carbonite. I thought this would be perfect if Vader had defeated her, but didn't kill her because of his attachment to her, hiding her away from the emperor on some obscure planet, encased in a carbonite freeze chamber. Perhaps Vader was hoping he could awaken her at some later date after he had a plan figured out to overthrow his master.
