Sphero is a company that creates cool toys that are, not surprisingly, spherical. One of those toys is a tiny BB-8 droid that you can control with your phone app. Now it's got an update that will allow it to "watch" the new Star Wars movie with you and react to it while you're watching. 

It can also be controlled by waving your arms around if you're wearing a "force band".

As you can see in the video, technology for motion capture and CGI is so advanced now that Nyong'o's CGI character can actually come to life as she's acting on the set.

Thank you so much for that brilliant invite to your formal.Unfortunately I'm locked in an intense staring competition with Luke Skywalker, somewhere in the middle of the galaxy, so won't be able to make it! Let me know how it goes! 


And just to show you what she's missing out on, here's the video invitation:

John Boyega went to visit a small Star Wars fan at the Royal London Hospital.  As he explains in the image description he shared on Instagram, Boyega stayed in character the whole time: 

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

He even found a Rey to hold his hand during the trip:

Daisy Ridley came across a post of her with a speech bubble suggesting that she's too skinny to be a "real woman".  She commented on the post which then got a lot of attention. 
Ridley posted a follow up on her own Instagram after her fans went after the person who posted the original.
