R2-D2's dark doppelganger is going Rogue. Along with the slew of new toys previewed over the past few hours, we now have the official reveal of a previously unknown character who will be introduced in the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Meet the Imperial astromech C2-B5.

The droid was formally introduced this afternoon on the weekly Star Wars Show on.

Here's what we learned:

"As you many know the Galactic Empire relies on astromech droids to maintain its machinery, but unlike the Rebel Alliance, Imperial technicians do not grant their droids independence and subject them to frequent memory wipes to keep them subservient."

Did C2's memory not get wiped? Did the little droid suddenly become independent? No one's saying.

Other than its black paint job, the droid bears a striking resemblance to the most heroic astromech in Star Wars, R2-D2. And while we don't know exactly what role C2 plays in the forthcoming film, it is worth remarking that it's R2-D2 who is entrusted by Princess Leia with protecting the Death Star plans in A New Hope - the same plans that are stolen during the course of Rogue One.
