If you are a fan of the Star Wars franchise you might be looking forward to the next animated series called Star Wars Rebels. That show is getting a new astromech robot called Chopper. The design of chopper is based on early concept art for R2-D2.

"If Artoo is the family dog," said Dave Filoni, executive producer of the show, "Chopper is the cat."

Chopper is a crew member aboard the starship in the series called Ghost. Chopper's official designation is C1-10P. The events that take place in the Star Wars Rebels series are set four years before Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

The old school looks of Chopper are a throwback to the original droids n the series. The show will premiere in the fall of 2014 as a one-hour special on Disney Channel. It will then be a normal series on Disney XD.
