Watch Daisy Ridley & BB-8 React to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

We have been trying to take a breather from Star Wars: The Force Awakens tidbits considering the release of the final trailer and everything surrounding it (the pre-ticket sales, the IMAX screening locations, the new images) pretty much dominated last week. But then we saw BB-8 watching the trailer in bed and threw all that out the window.

Take a moment to think about how much film marketing has been changed by social media. We now not only get to watch trailers and teasers on platforms from Facebook to Twitter to Instagram, but we get to see the stars of the films themselves watching said videos. Hence, this adorable two-fer of The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley watching the trailer for the first time, in bed, and her loyal, lovable droid, BB-8, doing the same.
