Force Friday II is upon us, which means that Star Wars: The Last Jedi product releases are in full swing! Fans of Star Wars in Australia (where Force Friday II kicked off) received a special surprise in the form of a new Star Wars: The Last Jedi character reveal. That’s right, his name is BB-9E, and he is a droid from the dark side! Check him out:
Here he is with R2-D2 and BB-8. It’s a BB sandwich!
BB-9E is “part of the astromech unit of the First Order that keep their starships and machinery operational,” and fans can meet him both in toy form as well as in AR (augmented reality) as part of Force Friday II events around the world.
To meet BB-9E in AR, use the Find the Force pop-up treasure hunt feature in the Star Wars app, and visiting participating retail locations. While there, you can take advantage of your location and browse all of the new and amazing Star Wars: The Last Jedi products that Force Friday II has to offer. We were going to write more, but we are literally getting in our cars now and heading to our nearest location as we speak. May the force be with you!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters December 15.
