One of the Promos for The Force Awakens shows R2-D2 and C-3PO meeting BB-8 in a desert, probably Jakku.

Where in the movie was this supposed to go?


It doesn't.

That scene was invented entirely for that promotional clip, and has nothing at all to do with the plot of the movie.

Note that the clip is not a Star Wars: The Force Awakens commercial, as it has sometimes been incorrectly labelled on YouTube. It's a commercial for a UK mobile service provider, O2 as you can see from the quote and clip below.

UK telecommunications services provider O2 has begun airing a new commercial which features our old trusty droid friends R2-D2 and C3PO, who are wandering the desert planet of Jakku in hopes of finding help. And help they find, in the form of BB-8, the new droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The footage does not appear to be from the movie itself src

  • There is also a similar TV advertisement for a new house design from a Housing Developer here in Japan which has absolutely nothing to do with Star Wars at all... – The Wandering Coder Jan 25 '16 at 6:21
  • @TheWanderingCoder do you have a link? – ibid Feb 5 '16 at 4:10
