Fan-Made FORCE AWAKENS Video features BB-8 Droid in Action
People continue to go bananas for the ball droid from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser. Last week we learned that the name of the droid is BB-8, and Mark Hamill explained that it’s actually a practical effect — Jedi mind trick? No, Jedi mind blown! In this fan-made video by Julien Leterrier, BB-8 is recreated in CG and is on the move as he makes his way through the desert. After a few extra moments and maneuvers, the fan footage could blend almost seamlessly into the small glimpse we got of this new character in the trailer.
