So, of course, WE’RE having feelings about the Star Wars: Force Awakens trailer. Feelings like “December 18th can’t come soon enough!” And we know the cast has major feels about the first peek at their movie. Daisy Ridley got misty:

John Boyega got so excited he rolled off the back of the couch he was sitting on and started showing off his lightsaber moves:

And we just got a peek at one of the non-human members of the casts’s reaction. Yes, we’re talking about the newest little robot in the Star Wars universe, BB-8.

As Mark Hamill AKA Luke Skywalker told Yahoo, with regards to BB-8 “They never cease to amaze me with what they’re able to come up with, you know? I said, ‘How are you ever gonna top R2-D2, the most adorable droid in movie history?'” And if this video is any indicator, BB-8 is going to go down in Star Wars history as one of the franchise’s all-time cutest characters.

BB-8 lies in a tiny bed and watches on an iPhone 6 (the set-up perfectly mirrors Ridley’s trailer-watching vid, only in miniature), and the droid gets so psyched its head may or may not spin around 360 degrees like it’s the little girl in The Exorcist (Spoiler: it does.)

Check out the cuteness below:
