BB-8 and Friends Fanboy Out Over R2-D2’s Heroics in New Star Wars Blips Short

The Star Wars YouTube channel has a little series of shorts called Star Wars Blips, and recently they’ve been becoming quite entertaining to watch. They’re less than a minute in length, and almost always feature BB-8 getting into some sort of shenanigans.

The most recent episode though features the most famous astromech droid in the galaxy though in R2-D2. In it, we see some of R2’s more amazing accomplishments from the prequel and original trilogy eras, and it just so happens that the sizzle reel is also being watched by BB-8 and a few of his Resistance droid buddies. There’s even a Gonk droid in attendance to fanboy out over R2’s heroics!

It’s a cheeky little short, but one worth watching if you love Star Wars and it’s famous little robots. Check it out above.

If you missed it yesterday another Star Wars Blips episode released, and it featured BB-8 screwing with his First Order counterpart, BB-9E. You can check out that debacle below.
