    BB-8 was imagined by J.J. Abrams and created by Neal Scanlan in cooperation with the Star Wars creature shop. Using practical effects, the creature shop team created different versions of the BB-8 droid, including puppets, remote control, and static props.

    A fully-functioning, practical BB-8 debuted alongside J.J. Abrams at Star Wars Celebration in April of 2015.
