“I don’t exactly know why it is that everyone finds BB-8 so cute and lovable.”
Matt has used his studies of electronics and computer engineering to build a stellar career as the animatronics and robotics wizard behind some of the biggest movie blockbusters of all time.
It’s not exactly a secret, but Matt’s the guy who brings the plucky robot BB-8 to life in the movies and on the red carpet. Oh, and Matt’s working on the next Star Wars too… but he couldn’t tell us anything about it ahead of release… because then he would have had to kill us.
