I was lucky enough to attend the Press Junket for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and interview so many talented people involved. J. J. Abrams, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega all talked about how real BB-8 was to all of them. He was in most of the film and when he wasn’t on set he was missed. So I think it’s great that some of the extras on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens home release include BB-8. Which by the way you can get Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital download right now! If you’re like me you had it on pre-order long ago!
Want a little more BB-8 in your life? We’ve got a special bonus clip and concept art showing the design process behind creating the world’s new favorite droid! This little celebrity has been very busy on screen as well as off! Take a look at a special visit he made to NASA’s JPL laboratories where he interacted with the best and brightest droids from this galaxy as well as celebrating the inaugural international flight of Japan’s ANA BB-8 Jet!
