Watch: Star Wars: The Force Awakens BB-8 Fan-Made Short



Disney recently revealed the name of the new droid seen in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer to be BB-8.

While Captain Kirk William Shatner compared BB-8 to Jar Jar Binks, it seems the little droid has at least found one fan.

Check out the BB-8 short a fan went out and created, which was done with CGI.

Mark Hamill recently revealed that J.J. Abrams didn't use CGI for BB-8, but real parts.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has a December 18, 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
