The Cutest Star Wars Droid, BB-8, Bows To Princes Harry And William

Well, the new Star Wars movie is finally here! And brace yourselves: here come all the Star Wars-related shenanigans that go along with one of the greatest sci-fi stories of all time.

The BB-8 droid first appeared two years ago, debuting his role in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Being as cute-as-a-button BB-8 is practically everyone’s sweetheart, joining the merry droid company of R2-D2 and C-3PO.

But the childlike, rotund robot seems to have impeccable manners too. Befitting a royalty, the droid chose to bow to Prince William and Prince Harry at the recent Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiere at the Royal Albert Hall, London on December 12.

BB-8 is a true Sir.

The European premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi brought numerous celebrities and big names to the red carpet.

But, hey, you know who else’s got a ‘big name’? That’s right, BB-8! After all, he’s hailing from a galaxy far, far away, and he practically stole the show. He was constantly buzzing – okay, rolling – alongside actors, princes, heads of state, pop stars… You know, fitting.

Droids are usually very well informed, and practically knowledgeable of almost everything. C-3PO bragged he could communicate in billions of languages, while apparently, BB-8’s special expertise is more in the realm of observing royal protocols around the galaxy.

Don’t believe me? See him do it.

I can’t help but clap in awe! Not being able to help themselves, the two Princes, Harry and William chuckled in delight. Obviously, the Star Wars droid is trying to recruit them as members of the resistance!

Honoring the intergalactic envoy, the Royal Palace of Kensington also published an official… tweet:

The Force is strong on this red carpet!

Let’s keep this Star Wars, and not War of the Worlds.

The princes are believed to have made cameos as Storm Troopers in the latest installment of the Star Wars saga.

They even got their own special Storm Trooper helmets, gifted to them by 12-year-old Lily Chambers and eight-year-old Eloisa Lerner – both daughters of Disney executives.

They also met with the legendary Like Skywalker himself, played by Mark Hamill, now sixty-six (remember Order 66?).

As reported by The Telegraph, while talking to presenter Edith Bowman, Hamill gave an emotional speech about the late Carrie Fisher (who played the iconic Princess Leia), saying:

“Everywhere I go people are helping me deal with it. I shouldn’t be upset she’s not around, I should be grateful for all the time I had with her. She was hilarious, adorable, as tough as she acted she had a vulnerability; I criticised her all the time but if anyone else did I’d get my back up and say ‘Don’t you do that’. She was so much fun. She’s great in the film.”

Ah, Star Wars. For those who haven’t seen it yet, here’s the latest trailer. Enjoy!
