Every Wednesday on the Star Wars Facebook page they run a show called “The Star Wars Show”, and this week The Star Wars Show revealed the latest character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to be a droid. The Imperial Astromech Droid C2-B5 does have a familiar look to R2-D2 but he is a different class of droid and in accordance to Imperial rules, he cannot have his own “individual personality” as his only function is to maintain Imperial equipment.
Not much is known about the droid at this time, other than he looks pretty badass in the Imperial color scheme. We’ll be closely monitoring the Star Wars pipeline in order talk about the latest developments in this fantastic story.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters December 16, 2016.
