UK telecommunications services provider O2 has begun airing a new commercial which features our old trusty droid friends R2-D2 and C3PO, who are wandering the desert planet of Jakku in hopes of finding help. And help they find, in the form of BB-8, the new droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The footage does not appear to be from the movie itself, but any droid-fanatics out there might find themselves in cuteness overload watching this new television spot. Hit the jump to see R2-D2 and C-3PO meet BB-8.
