C-3PO will have a new adorable companion in "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker".
3 Oct – It was just a week ago that "Star Wars" fans found out there will be two new characters appearing in "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", now an official look at one of them has been revealed.
Fans who have been wondering how the big screen version of Babu Frik, who was last week revealed as a tiny plastic accessory (tiny enough to perch on C-3PO's shoulder) in the C-3PO Hasbro Black Series, can now sleep easy knowing the answer to that.
First, take a look at the toy form of Babu Frik (Photo source: Gizmodo).
Here's a description of Babu Frik via StarWars.com: The tiny Anzellan droidsmith works among the Spice Runners of Kijimi and can reprogram or modify virtually any droid - regardless of the security measures protecting its systems.
That's all the info there is for now, so maybe it can be expected that Babu Frik will be reprogramming or modifying C-3PO in the upcoming movie.
And now here's the big screen version of Babu Frik.
Babu Frik was one of the two characters revealed in last week's Triple Force Friday merchandise reveal livestream, with the other being Boolio. The latter's toy was introduced as part of the new Lego Millennium Falcon set.
Boolio looks coolio?
No info has been revealed about Boolio, guess fans will have to catch "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" in cinemas this December to find out more about it.
