I dunno if anyone ever definitively decided if BB-8 were a girl or boy. Early reports indicated the popular droid was in fact female, but then Neal Scanlon said BB-8 was a boy. Regardless of gender, the droid does not have legs and cannot sink into a curtsy, so we’re rolling with bow for the purposes of this article. It’s sort of amazing that the caretakers of the droid can get BB-8 to move in ways that mimic human behavior so adequately, but those are some sweet bows to the famous figures, and the movements earn chuckles from Prince William and Prince Harry. BB-8 then turns to the camera before wandering off to charm other people on the red carpet before the premiere.
