This Autumn, a Star Wars-themed variant of the popular Action Movie FX app will be released for smartphones. The app will feature content from The Force Awakens, and has several special effects designed by the makers at Lucasfilm themselves.
Aside from the trailer itself, some promotional images for the app show that BB-8 has a number of appendages and some of the utilities that they have. Among BB-8’s arsenal is a set of connective cables that allow him to stay up at elevated heights (or to break a fall) and a shock rod that fires a pulse of electricity (like R2-D2). He’s a certified Swiss-Army Droid!
