"BB-8 - A Hero Rolls Out" is the forty-first episode of Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures. It premiered on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel on March 27, 2020.[1]

Plot summary[]

The video opens with BB-8 dodging laser fire at Niima Outpost on Jakku. The narrator explains that in a "galaxy of adventures," BB-8 rolls into battle. BB-8 knocks down two First Order stormtroopers before escaping with Finn and Rey aboard the Millennium Falcon. After Rey fires off the ship's engines, BB-8 clings to safety by using his grappling cable.

The video then jumps to BB-8 flying with Poe Dameron in his T-70 X-wing starfighter Black One during the attack on the Resistance navy. After the fighter is hit, Poe tasks BB-8 with repairing the ship's weapon system. The dutiful BB-8 descends down the astromech socket, repairing the targeting system just in time for Poe to shoot down a TIE/sf space superiority fighter.

Later, BB-8 fires coins at officers from the Canto Bight Police Department. He then comes to Finn and Rose Tico's rescue aboard the blazing hangar of the Mega-class Star Dreadnought Supremacy. BB-8 hijacks a First Order All Terrain Scout Transport and shoots down several stormtroopers. Finn and Rose ride with BB-8 in the walker. Finn gives BB-8 a thumbs up and the droid returns the favor with his spark projector.

  2. This episode begins during the events of Before the Awakening and ends during the events of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary places Poe's story in Before the Awakening in 3 BSI and Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi in 0 ASI, meaning that Before the Awakening takes place three years prior to the Starkiller Incident, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Therefore Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi takes place in 34 ABY, Before the Awakening takes place in 31 ABY, and this episode must take place during these years.
