These are the BB-8 ringtones you're looking for

As you've probably heard from every possible corner of the known media universe, J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally here — and people like it. While that has to do a lot with the visual style (shot on film!), some great chase sequences (the Millennium Falcon!), and memorable battles (lightsabers!), it primarily has to do with the characters — including Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, and the cutest robot to ever bleep-bloop through the galaxy, BB-8.

But while you may already have one of the many, many BB-8 toys sitting in your home or office, sometimes that's not enough. You might want BB-8 to be along with you every moment of the day. Like when you get a text message. A voicemail. An email. When somebody calls you. These are the precious fleeting seconds where you may be saying to yourself, Yes. Right now. This is when I wish I could add a little more adorable rolling robot to my life.

Thankfully, there's an answer.

Writer David Sparks has whipped together a package of BB-8 ringtones, perfect to add to your phone and assign to any function you wish. They sound to us like they're from the app for the Sphero toy version of the droid — but of course, we learned this week that the real people behind the droid's distinctive voice were none other than Bill Hader and Ben Schwartz.

So go ahead. Download. Your family is going to love it during the holidays.
