Watch What Happens When a Star Wars Robot Lands in Dubai...

We think we’ve found Dubai’s most adorable visitor… and he’s from a galaxy far, far away.

BB-8, a mini droid from the Star Wars universe, has been spotted taking in the sights around town before the release of The Last Jedi in UAE cinemas on December 14 – you can check out his adventures in the clip above.

It’s all to build hype around one of the year’s most anticipated films… so who’s ready to geek out Star Wars style?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases this weekend

The Last Jedi is the second episode in the epic sequel trilogy. The film picks up immediately after the events in The Force Awakens (released in 2015)… and we’ve got questions:

  • In the movie trailer, is Kylo Ren donning the same cape as his grandfather, Darth Vader?
  • Who is Rey’s family… is she Luke’s daughter? Obi-Wan’s granddaughter?
  • Why did Luke Skywalker disappear? Is there trouble in the Jedi order?
  • Will we learn more about Supreme Leader Snoke? He was a mysterious presence in The Force Awakens, appearing only as a hologram.
  • Is Yoda making a comeback in The Last Jedi? (Our favourite rumour from the film… please be true!)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases in UAE cinemas on December 14. You can purchase cinema tickets today from
