In the best 'Star Wars' meet-cute, watch R2-D2 and C-3PO meet BB-8!
What happens when old droids meet new droids? We’re still going to have to wait until Force Awakens opens to find that out, but now there’s a new commercial that gives us a little bit of a tease. If you were worried that there’d be some droid animosity between C-3PO, R2-D2 and BB-8, you were wrong. These guys (and maybe one girl) are a new droid squad.
Thanks to the U.K. company O2 Priority — which looks like a U.K. Groupon, but is actually a mobile service provider, and not like the water company I first assumed it was, because, in my mind, that made sense — is running a new contest to win tickets to The Force Awakens premiere in London. To promote this, they’ve enlisted our favorite droids, who meet up up for the very first time in the desert, which I’m going to assume is the desert of Jakku (I know it looks like Tatooine, and it’s got the moisture farming structures of Tatooine, and it looks like it’s even got the far-off suns of Tatooine, but it’s probably Jakku).
Why C-3PO and R2 are wandering around lost is still anyone’s guess, along with why C-3PO has a completely red arm. But the most important thing to take away is that R2 throws C-3PO under the speeder as to why they’re “late” for the meetup. No worries, beeps BB-8 (probably), because she’s got something important to share with them.
Check out this droid meet-cute below, and if you’re in the U.K., enter this contest and win it so I can be super jealous.
