Meet Chopper. He's the new lead droid character for Star Wars Rebels. Who needs RD2D when you have this guy? Well, we'll always need R2 but it's cool to see another astromech unit will become a featured player in the Expanded Star Wars universe.
Dave Filoni who you may know as a big deal at Lucasfilm says of Chooper:
"The easiest way to sum up Chopper that we took to on the writing team is that; If Artoo's your favorite Dog, Chopper's a Cat."
