Earlier today Lucasfilm dropped a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser on Instagram (which also showed off the app’s new widescreen capabilities), but lost amid all the excitement for the new footage were some new photos from the highly anticipated film. Lucasfilm has revealed two new set photos and a pretty outstanding magazine cover featuring your new favorite droid.
Each trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has offered plenty to dissect, and although we don’t know too much about several of the key players, fans are already figuring out which ones will be their favorites. Amid badass new characters like Kylo Ren, Finn, Rey and Captain Phasma, there’s one little co-star that stands out among its larger peers: BB-8.

Abrams keeps on telling us.
