Spoiler alert: Sphero had nothing to do with it! Or so it seems at least, because the behind-the-scenes video for The Force Awakens shows BB-8 being built from scratch in multiple iterations, to be used in different ways on set. We’ll get into all of that in today’s podcast, and talk about a very revealing remark that Anthony Daniels makes about BB-8 (okay, maybe it’s not exactly “revealing,” but it could be said to put his relationship with another Star Wars actor in the spotlight again).
Today’s podcast is sponsored by Zebra Imaging, makers of the most realistic holograms you’ve ever seen. Of course, holograms are an iconic special effect of the Star Wars movies, and Zebra Imaging has brought the very first one to life, with a hologram of R2-D2 projecting the hologram of Princess Leia, as seen in A New Hope. There are three more to choose from for now, and it’s like having the scenes come to life right in front of you. Check out Zebra Imaging’s Star Wars 3D holograms now!
