    I'm sorry, the old BB-8 can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, because he's dead. #BB9E

    As if this all wasn't perfect enough, director Rian Johnson revealed that BB-9E went by a different nickname on set.

    @mattsinger Just be thankful we didn't stick with his obscenely adorable on set nickname, BB-H8
