New Rogue One Droid
The Force Awakens gave us some refreshed new designs. Oscar Isaac stood by Poe Dameron’s ship in a behind the scenes footage and said ‘Its a black X-Wing, that’s just the coolest thing ever’. Black designs on old classics just look cooler, and it looks like we’re getting a new black droid.
The official Star Wars YouTube series, The Star Wars Show unveiled the new droid from the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
C2-B5, is apparently imperial astromech, and he’s basically a badass black R2D2
The Star Wars Show host Peter Townley, “the Galactic Empire relies on astromech droids to maintain its machinery. But unlike the Rebel Alliance, Imperial technicians do not grant their droid independence and subject them to frequent memory wipes to keep them subservient”.
Look at this guy! He’s the Vader of the droid world.
