John Boyega Adorably Helps BB-8 Deal With The Stress Of Press Tours

BB-8 got so tired. He was rolling towards the ledge but I stopped him thankfully.

Press tours for big blockbusters can be quite a dog and pony show, even for adorable droids. Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega has been documenting his worldwide journey on social media pretty faithfully for the past few months, and one of his latest Instagram posts shows us a stressed out BB-8 who managed to find an unhealthy outlet for the pressure while in Shanghai, China.

As the droid rolls to the building’s precarious edge, the charming Brit managed to talk BB-8 from the edge. Luckily for Star Wars fans, one of the breakouts of Episode VII will live to see another installment in the franchise.

Honestly, Boyega’s entire Instagram feed is worth a look. The dude is clearly beyond excited to be a part of the Star Wars universe, and that kind of joy is utterly infections.
