Every good Star Wars story needs a buddy droid.
Most well-known and beloved Star Wars stories have one thing in common with each other- they all have a droid character who’s, well, actually a character. Not just a machine- from R2-D2 in the original trilogy, to BB-8 in the sequel trilogy, to even Chopper in Star Wars Rebels.

In a new behind-the-scenes video shared by EA, we get a brief look at how the developers conceptualized and then created BD-1, from the role he plays in the story, to how emotive he is, to how he expresses himself, and much more.
