Mark Hamill talked to Yahoo movies about playing with the droid:

“How are you ever gonna top R2-D2, the most adorable droid in movie history?… And when they were demonstrating how they did this, live on set — because it’s not CGI, that’s a live prop — I was just amazed. They let me play around with it. [Laughs] I was running it all around at the creature shop up in Pinewood. I’m telling you, it’s an absolute delight. And not having thought that I’d ever go back there, to go back into [the Star Wars] world, is just – I get the chills. It’s just so much fun.”

  1. Star Wars has all kinds of little droids running around like little rats. I don’t see the practical use of ball droid, but we haven’t seen the movie. Hopefully they don’t focus to much time on this guy.

    I like all the droids. I think one of the coolest droids in movies is Jinx… and he is a must bigger ball shaped droid.

    Yo Jinx!
