How Does BB-8, Everyone’s New Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Character, Actually Work?

by Mike Sampson April 17, 2015 @ 6:02 PM
If you saw any of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens live stream from Star Wars Celebration, there were two immediate takeaways. One: that trailer tho. Two: BB-8, the new ball droid, who might just be the cutest thing ever. (Someone already even got a BB-8 tattoo!) It wasn't his presence in the Star Wars trailer (which was limited to just a very brief appearance), but his live appearance. It's one thing to pull this off in a movie where strings, rods and tracks can be digitally erased, but live on stage in front of an audience of thousands is a completely different how did Disney and Lucasfilm do this?
