Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ crazy rolling ball droid is a practical effect, not CGI – Polygon

This little guy from the new Star Wars trailer is not #CGI:

“They never cease to amaze me with what they’re able to come up with, you know? I said, ‘How are you ever gonna top R2-D2, the most adorable droid in movie history?’ And then they have this new one. I can’t even tell you his name, but you saw it in the trailer,” [Mark] Hamill told Yahoo Movies.

“And when they were demonstrating how they did this thing, live on set — because it’s not CGI, that’s a live prop — I was just amazed. They let me play around with it.” ~ Polygon
