Meet BB-9E – BB-8’s Dark Mirror In “Last Jedi”

It’s Force Friday tomorrow, with retailers all over the world unveiling new “Star Wars” products for purchase.

Earlier today we saw photos of toy versions of Snoke, the Praetorian Guard, an Executioner Stormtrooper, and several familiar characters like Rey and Luke.

Now comes a video showing off the first look at BB-9E, the Dark Side counterpart to BB-8 and part of the astromech unit of the First Order that keep the regime’s starships and machinery operating.

The character will first be seen in Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and the director has revealed on Twitter that the character had a different on-set nickname – BB-H8.
