Star Wars' BB-8 Meets Real-Life NASA JPL Droids

Disney's twitter accounts posted a new video Friday of BB-8, the lovable ball droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, taking a visit to NASA's JPL, where they're actively developing robots that will one day help humans explore foreign planets.

BB-8 (and his human companion) toured the labs, meeting robots like the Disney-visit-appropriately named King Louie, a robot built for dexterity. The NASA JPL team clearly enjoyed having the Star Wars droid visit, taking pictures and enjoying time with the character.

BB-8 will return in Star Wars: Episode VIII, filming now for a December 15, 2017 release.
