Watch BB-8's adorable reaction to the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer

Earlier this week we saw Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who play Rey and Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, react to the movie's latest trailer. Both were visibly emotional, with Ridley tearful and overcome; Boyega animated and overjoyed, but now it's time for the real star of the show — BB-8 has its own reaction video in response to the Star Wars trailer.

Lying in a tiny version of Daisy Ridley's bed, the spherical BB-8 — or at least Sphero's toy version of the droid — watches the trailer on an iPhone 6, the size of a flatscreen TV to his miniature frame. We hear Han Solo's confirmation that the stories of the war between the Empire and the Rebellion were true, and the little droid starts to shake like an excited puppy, his head spinning in circles. Between the bed (aww it's sleeping!), the giant phone (aww it's tiny!), and the very physical reaction (aww it thinks it's people!), the ball-shaped BB-8 could be about to replace R2-D2 in the hearts of a generation. Unless, of course, BB-8 is the secret Sith controlling Kylo Ren's movements from the shadows. Bigger surprises have come for Star Wars fans.
