BB-8 and R2-D2, strike a pose for TIME magazine.

Photographer Marco Grob was given the honor of shooting the Star Wars: The Force awaken's droids for the cover of TIME magazine's latest issue. “The moment you meet BB-8, you build up some form of weird human connection,” said Grob, who photographed the new Star Wars character for this week’s TIME cover. “It has one eye that has this really cute way of looking at you. It’s just incredible.”

Come get a behind-the-scenes look at the photoshoot in the video below.
