Star Wars.com released a video featuring a real life version of Chopper, a little droid who will be a part of the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels. The droid was brought to life by some of the wizards over at Lucasfilm, and they even bring R2-D2 out to meet him. It’s always awesome to see some droids in action makes me wonder about the Skynet days to come.
Here’s a little information that they offered:
Chopper is the grumpy, lazy, yet ultimately heroic astromech droid of the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series — and Lucasfilm has brought him to life. In this new video, go behind the scenes to see how a fully functioning Chopper was designed, built, and finally, introduced to his creators and to the world.
