Welcome to the Legion!

new droid C2B5

A new droid has joined the team! The Star Wars Show revealed today that an Imperial astromech droid named C2-B5 will appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Aside from the above photo, we got very little in the way of details, only that C2-B5, like all Imperial droids, is subject to frequent memory wipes to keep them in check. Unlike fan favorites R2D2 and BB8, whose memories span very long periods of time, this new little droid probably won’t know much of what has gone on in the recent past. Will he be of help to our heroine, Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) as she attempts to steal plans for the Death Star? Only time will tell!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to hit theaters on December 16, 2016. It also stars Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso (Jyn’s father); Alan Tudyk as another new droid, K-2SO; and Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, among others. I am looking forward to meeting all these new characters, and seeing just how the droids fit into the story. C2-B5 has a very Darth Vader look about him, doesn’t he?
