Yesterday, the Star Wars YouTube channel released a new episode of The Star Wars Show, which gave fans a look at a new droid making its debut in Rogue One later this year. C2-B5 looks an awful lot like R2-D2, but has his allegiances hardwired to the darker side of the intergalactic battle. The Imperical astromech droid is basically a straight-up evil version of the Rebellion’s favorite R2 unit, which should make for an interesting interaction if the two ever cross paths somewhere down the line.
Along with the new character reveal, The Star Wars Show dives into SW related goodness, including an interview with Rayne Roberts who reveals the epiphany behind the search-and-rescue plot of The Force Awakens.
Check out the full video above, and catch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story when it hits theaters on December 16th.
