Artists and cast redesign Star Wars' BB-8 droid

The Star Wars cast has joined forces with artists and designers in redesigning BB-8 for the Star Wars: Force For Change charity.

Force for Change raises money for children all over the world

Since its release in 1977 the Star Wars films have inspired generations of artists thanks to their unique and experimental design creations. To turn this creative energy into a force for good, the Star Wars charity Force For Change has got film stars and artists to redesign the loveable BB-8 droid.

The new BB-8s will be auctioned online

Classic Star Wars cast members such as Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Warwick Davies are lending their artistic talents to the project, along with the leads from The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.
