Social Scanner: Hangin’ with BB-8 and More!

Fans relax -- and make short films -- with the galaxy's greatest soccer-ball droid, plus more from across social media!

As a member of the (very small) social media team here at Lucasfilm, I have the honor of reading, responding to, laughing at, loving, and sharing all of your Star Wars conversations every day. Our fans are creative, passionate, funny, and very active across the Internet; every Friday, I’ll share my favorite social media posts from the week in the Social Scanner, so show me what you’ve got!

It feels like time is speeding up as we get closer to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After seeing this week’s posters and new clips, the anticipation is hitting a fever pitch. I commend this Padawan for working on his Jedi patience.

A lot of AT-ATs this week, must be something in the atmosphere. The sound effects really bring this one together.

Just the friendly office AT-AT. #StarWars

Oh, BB-8…you seemed like such a nice droid. I’m looking forward to seeing more creative FX uses next week!
