Star Wars BB-8 droid rolls with the punches in new Force Awakens clip

We think we may have found a design flaw with the new droid design


With Less than a month to go until release day, we promised ourselves we wouldn’t watch any more Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens footage.


Then we heard about BB-8’s starring role in the latest TV spot, and we immediately broke that promise.

The new rolling droid design is undeniably adorable, but clearly has its drawbacks when you’re performing mad Millennium Falcon manoeuvres.

Space sick much?

The new clip also has a great little Star Wars call-back, with the Resistance fighter Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) telling X-Wing Red and Blue Squads to take his lead.

Someone looking awfully like Return Of The Jedi character Nien Nunb is flying with him, as is an as-yet-unknown female X-Wing pilot.


Almost time to fly: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is released on 17th December.
