Star Wars: R2-D2, BB-8 Get the Spotlight in Official Animated Shorts

With just over three months left until the release of the highly anticipated eighth chapter in the main Star Wars saga, two of the fan-favorite droids from generations past and present have taken center stage in a pair of official animated shorts.

The first clip features the beloved, trustworthy astromech droid from the original trilogy and the prequels, R2-D2, whose history of intergalactic heroism has apparently earned him something of a celebrity status within the droid community, as evident by BB-8 and others looking starstruck after R2 rolls casually by. The second clip showcases the aforementioned spherical stand-out from The Force Awakens, BB-8, who comes face-to-face with his evil First Order doppelganger, BB-9E.
