The BB-8 Phenomenon continues

BB-8 Facebook sticker created by artist Katie Cook

At The Cantina Cast blog I wrote about the BB-8 Phenomenon that has been happening since it was introduced in the first teaser trailer.

Now with Star Wars The Force Awakens opening world wide, there is no doubt that the BB-8 Phenomenon is continuing with the following…

During the Star Wars The Force Awakens Red Carpet event, Lucasfilm presented a featurette about BB-8, which included…

JJ Abrahms first sketch of BB-8

and the final concept art.

You can view this featurette below:

The most interesting is this quote from Kathleen Kennedy on the red carpet, which I believe is about BB-8, that makes me wonder just what is coming next for this character…

an unbelievable droid that will become a huge star on the Disney Channel

Therefore, I believe we are still in the infancy of the BB-8 Phenomenon. Not only in the Star Wars movies, but beyond as well.

    Love Katie Cook! Such a great artist and even nicer person. She is always so awesome to my daughter at Comicon. She did a little water color portrait of my daughter this year and gave it to her.
