    In this installment of Rebels Recon, goes inside the episode “The Forgotten Droid,” with cast and creator interviews and more.

    In “The Forgotten Droid,” we learn there’s a bit more to Chopper than we’ve learned so far. “Chopper was a navigational astromech on a y-wing and he actually crashed right outside Hera’s front door,” co-executive producer Henry Gilroy explains.

    Chopper meets a friend in Imperial inventory droid, AP-5, a fellow Clone Wars hero. Though a new droid design to Rebels, art director Kilian Plunkett explains the design’s origins. “AP-5, his model, was in Episode IV. He’s a Death Star droid. But i think he needed to feel a little more unique and special.”
