23. BB-8 hijacks an AT-ST walker
Movie: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi
Characters involved: BB-8, Finn, Rose, First Order
The astromech droid made his Star Wars debut in The Force Awakens and instantly became a fan favorite. Even though BB-8 belongs to Poe Dameron, he spent much of his time with Rey and Finn. Since his introduction, BB-8 has certainly proved his worth as more than just an average droid.
BB-8’s personality alone has shown why the droid stands out. But he’s also a brave little droid when the situation arises. In the first installment in the sequel trilogy, BB-8 was tasked with keeping the map holding Luke’s location away from the First Order. In The Last Jedi, the droid revealed why he is such an asset to the Resistance.
BB-8 joined Finn and Rose on their mission in Canto Bight. After Finn and Rose get arrested, BB-8 takes out a few guards for them to escape. The group is later captured by Captain Phasma and the First Order, but BB-8 greatly helped in setting them free.
In the commotion aboard the ship, BB-8 hijacked an AT-ST and shot down a team of stormtroopers. The droid then used to walker to carry Finn and Rose to a ship so they could make their escape away from the First Order. The success allowed them to reunite safely with the Resistance on Crait.
