BB-8 Takes Home the Award for Best Reaction to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer
The final Star Wars trailer elicited ecstatic reactions from fans, but the most heartfelt reactions probably came from the stars of the film, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. Now, one more of the film's stars has posted his reaction to the trailer on social media, and it's the best one so far, probably because it comes from the most adorable cast member:

BB-8's reaction is absolutely perfect. It's the Sphero toy version rather than the bot who will actually appear in the film (although that almost makes it cuter, considering that he's smaller than the iPhone he watches the trailer on), but the video comes from one of the Star Wars official Instagram accounts, so it's still BB-8's official reaction. I especially love that it closely imitates Daisy Ridley's now-famous reaction, particularly since BB-8 is filmed lying in bed under the covers:
