Check Out the Interactive BB-8 Coming Soon to Disney World

You can claim that the true star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was Rey or Finn or Kylo Ren. Or you could go with one of the old guard characters like General Leia or Han Solo. But you would be wrong. The true star of Force Awakens was BB-8. Period. End of discussion. He was the best.

So I can’t say I am shocked to see the following video, posted to Facebook by a member of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, that shows the new interactive BB-8 that is now hanging out and greeting guests at Hong Kong Disneyland and is coming soon to the Star Wars Launch Bay at Walt Disney World. Check this dude out:

That little BB-8 toy you could control with your phone was pretty cool but compared to this guy, who can nod and respond to your questions, he’s like a broken, old Gobot. If you don’t have any Hong Kong travel plans in the near future, the good news is that Inside the Magic says this BB-8 scheduled to begin accepting visitors “next month” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. (That’s also where Star Wars Land, along with a bunch of new rides, will open sometime in 2019.) I also look forward to seeing Star Wars biggest little star alongside his lesser co-stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, and Mark Hamill in Star Wars: The Last Jedi next December.
