See BB-8, the ball droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, on stage at Star Wars Celebration!

The infamous "ball droid" BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become an instant star with fans similar to how R2-D2 did in the original films. It was revealed by actor Mark Hamill that BB-8 was an physical prop on set and I think the decision to go with a physical prop as opposed to a CG droid was absolutely brilliant!

Today at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California, BB-8 made his first public appearance on stage at the keynote panel. He comes out on stage (looking absolutely awesome!) and even exchanges a few words with R2-D2 who was already on stage at the time. I can already tell that I am going to be a big BB-8 fan.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be in theaters on December 18, 2015.
