In the all new Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode VII) there are many new characters that we love and fear from Rey, Poe and Finn on the side of the resistance to Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke of the First Order. All of these newbies aside, there is a new droid unit that has the hearts of Star Wars fans young and old, and it’s name is BB-8. This little BB unit has a domed head, similar to that of R2 droid series, with the bulk of its body made up of a ball that the droid rolled on. BB-8 by far has been one of the crowd favorites as far as new characters that have been introduced go but is it as sweet and innocent as it lets on?
If you haven’t already seen it, BB-8 is being put on the spot by Finn to reveal the location of the Resistance base to our pilot on this mission, Rey. Reluctantly, BB-8 informs Rey where the Resistance is located moving Finn to give BB-8 a thumbs-up for not getting him caught in his own lie about being part of the Resistance. BB-8 returns the thumbs-up with extending a torch lighter which is being interpreted in one of two ways. Fans are divided on whether this little BB unit is returning a thumbs-up to Finn or flipping him the bird.
You be the judge.
