Star Wars Celebration 2016 News: The Droids of The Force Awakens Panel

Star Wars BB8

One of the most endearing elements to the Star Wars universe are the Droids, who are as much a part of the story and Star Wars lore as any of the human characters. On day two of Star Wars Celebration 2016 in London, a fan panel was held which took a look at the Droids of The Force Awakens, how they were, the process in creating a droid for the film and in particular a good look at the design and build of the newest and already iconic droid from the new Star Wars trilogy….BB8!

Oliver Steeples and Lee Towersey, the builders who brought the R2 units of The Force Awakens to life, join animatronics and programming experts Matt Denton and Josh Lee, the engineering team behind the iconic BB-8.
