BB-8 coming to Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this Spring


Star Wars will celebrate in a big way this year, as the franchise celebrates their 40th anniversary. There’s already a lot happening, with the launch of the eighth saga film, “The Last Jedi” as well as the return of Star Wars Celebration to Orlando. Disney is also pulling out all the stops with huge events and happenings. There’s already some amazing new shows, including a nightly Star Wars fireworks extravaganza, and of course Star Wars Launch Bay. Guests can peruse the memorabilia from the films, and even meet some of their favorite characters like Chewbacca, and Kylo Ren.

Soon, guests will also be able to meet the lovable droid, BB-8 as it rolls into Launch Bay for a great new photo op. Guests will be able to see the free standing droid in Launch Bay, beginning in April. In fact, guests at the special event, Star Wars Galactic Nights will be the first to see BB-8 on April 14th, exclusively for the guests at the event. Guests will be able to get their picture taken, and actually see the amazing, fully operational droid.

The premiere will come right in the middle of the huge Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, and will help to kick off an amazing year of Star Wars fun.
