‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Ad Introduces BB-8 to C-3PO and R2-D2
And now for something a little different! It stands to reason that beloved veteran Star Wars characters C-3PO and R2-D2 will meet adorable new droid BB-8 at some point during The Force Awakens, right? If not, we’ll be seeing a whole lot of fan-fic on Tumblr in a couple of months. A new British ad introduces the two classic droids to the newest ball-droid on the galaxy block in a cute video that gives us a break from all the TV spots and promos and featurettes.
The ad above comes from British communications company O2, and features C-3PO and R2-D2 wandering around on a desert planet (Jakku, maybe?) until they come across BB-8, with C-3PO demanding to know what’s so important. The brief ad was created by O2 to promote a contest — which means this isn’t actual footage from The Force Awakens. But if you live in the UK, you can win tickets to the premiere of the upcoming film. For the rest of us, we’ll keep waiting until next month.
For more Star Wars: The Force Awakens fun, SNL aired a “lost” audition reel this weekend featuring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and more. It’s definitely worth a watch (or five), especially for Bobby Moynihan’s impression of George Lucas:
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in less than a month, on December 18.
