Here’s hoping Disney keeps throwing us tiny Star Wars: The Force Awakens gems every day between now and the film’s release. Seriously, I don’t care about spoilers. I just want more BB-8 in my life. This video from Disney and Sphero, the company behind the epically adorable and personable BB-8 toy from Force Friday, will have you feeling all the same feels that I feel. Watch it. Watch it now.
Readers, how cute is BB-8 and his little marble pal? Something about this video totally reminds me of old school Looney Tunes cartoons. I don’t know why. It just does. Seriously though, have you ever seen a more expressive droid? I mean, except for R2 obviously.
While bits and pieces of the domestic and international trailers have given us a little more of BB-8’s personality, we still don’t know much about his purpose aside from the fact that it’s pretty safe to say he’s an astromech like that other sassy beeping droid from the original films. It has been pretty fun seeing more and more of him in each trailer, though, and it’s looking like he’s going to be pals with Rey if nothing else, and fly in an X-Wing with Poe Dameron. (And if there is a fan theory out there that BB-8 is evil, I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR IT.)
There’s nothing truly revealing about this little video, but it sure is a cute way to spend your Sunday, right? Please tag @nerdist or @bookoisseur on Twitter and tell us what other toys you are dying to see BB-8 play with next. Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18th.
