We've all already managed to completely fall in-love with Star Wars: The Force Awakens' new droid sensation BB-8. But not many know his full, very complex, life story.

This mockumentary looks inside the life and career of the apparently English-born droid, from his birth, to his acting enthusiast childhood where he would perform Shakespearean plays in his living room.

Graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, we follow BB-8's career from creating a popular British sketch comedy series with fellow actor Jude Law, to stinting in a different BBC popular show - Doctor Who.

Departing to Hollywood brought BB-8 to his most complex and difficult era. Without giving away too much, expect seeing BB-8 as the original actor in one of Disney's most famous robot-led films.

We all know the story has a happy end, as BB-8 finally landed his most famous role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Still, it's important to know that every story has its downfalls.

Watch the documentary, narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart himself, and gathering some of Hollywood's biggest names to chat about their old pal BB-8. George Clooney, J.J. Abrams, Billie Piper and others all make an appearance.
