John Boyega talks BB-8 off a ledge
“BB, don’t do it, man!”
It looks like the grueling “Force Awakens” press tour has finally gotten to BB-8. John Boyega, who plays Finn in the new “Star Wars” movie (the days when that he still needs to be identified are numbered — this guy is nearly a household name), tweeted a video from Shanghai of himself talking the little droid away from the ledge of a building overlooking the Chinese city.
R2-D2 also makes an appearance. Watch the video below to see if BB-8 makes it out okay:
