If you’re not familiar with Sphero’s BB-8 droid, it’s a pretty convincing facsimile of the droid that appears in the latest installment of the Star Wars, The Force Awakens.

Now, thanks to an update to the toy’s app, the little droid can now watch the Force Awakens with you and react with lights, sound and motion to what is happening on screen.

The robot uses audio cues from the movie to react, so you’ll need to have it close enough to your sound source.

Pretty cool feature by the developers.
