VIDEO: Watch “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Droid “BB-8” Make A Surprise Appearance At Star Wars Celebration
BB-8, the newest droid from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” made a suprise appearance at the Star Wars Celebration Live Stream and completely stole the show.Check out this amazing technical demonstration video of BB-8:
When BB-8 was first seen in the first teaser trailer for “The Force Awakens” last year, many people thought this was just a complete “CGI” created robot. Nope. BB-8 is a fully functional working droid who appeared with the rest of the cast on the set of “The Force Awakens.”
Kathleen Kennedy, head of Lucasfilm, also revealed that we actually have Bob Iger, CEO of Walt Disney, to thank because it was Iger that found the company that created the tech that brought BB-8 to life.
BB-8 kind of reminds me of a cross between R2D2 and Wall-E and a soccer ball.
