Meet The New, Grumpy Droid Being Introduced In Star Wars Rebels [VIDEO]

With a new Star Wars animated series on the way to Disney XD, we were bound to learn about a few new characters soon. We already know a baddie, the Imperial Inquisitor, now meet a good guy! “The design for Chopper (a.k.a. C1-10P) was inspired by early Ralph McQuarrie concept art for R2-D2, with significance placed on the arms that fold out of Chopper’s head,” write The Hollywood Reporter. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at his creation and find out if you like the cut of his jib.

    That’s two male characters introduced so far. Fingers crossed we’ll get at least one female character in this series. God, I hope no one on this new show is thinking “There were no female star fighters or soldiers in the original movies so we’ve got to stick with canon.”

    Greg Weisman is a producer on this show. Trust me, there will be female characters, and they will have rounded personalities.

    From the Lego sets, it looks to be a female Twi’lek and a female human as part of the main characters.
