Ever since Disney purchased LucasFilm, every aspect of Star Wars media such as the films, animated series, video games and comics have been certified as part of the official canon of the series. Marvel’s Star Wars comic book series centered on Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) is one of the numerous canon comics for fans wanting to learn more about the Resistance’s best pilot and his droid companion BB-8.
The latest issue of Star Wars: Poe Dameron reveals something incredibly fascinating about BB-8. According to the comic, the orange and white, one-of-a-kind droid seems to have a special someone in his life.
As you can see in the comic page down below, we see Poe and BB-8 together at the Resistance Base on the planet D’Quar. Here, we see the duo interacting with an astromech droid named Ivee. Poe is shown to be a bit confused as to why Ivee fixed up his ship – only to learn that it was fixed mainly to ensure BB-8’s safety. We then see BB-8 and Ivee stroll together as Poe cheer’s his friend on:
Among the new characters introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there has yet to be an officially canonized romance with any of the human characters. Although there seemed to be some interest on Finn’s (John Boyega) part with his connection to Rey (Daisy Ridley), and numerous fans have expressed hopes for a romance between Finn and Poe, no romance has been seen in any of the new characters’ lives.
That is why it is interesting to see that BB-8 seems to have a girlfriend of his own in Ivee. Perhaps we may meet her in live-action form very soon in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Either way, it is nice to see BB-8 has someone special in his life amidst the chaos between the Resistance and the First Order.

5 Ways ‘The Last Jedi’ Links To Greater ‘Star Wars’ Canon
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is right around the corner. The film is the next chapter in the ongoing Skywalker saga. It’s also unique in the Star Wars films as it is the first one to be an immediate sequel to its predecessor. But that does not mean there won’t be plenty of Easter eggs for fans of the greater Star Wars canon to pick up on and enjoy.
One of the biggest criticisms about the previous Star Wars canon, now dubbed Legends, is that ancillary material never connected. Since Disney has taken over and the establishment of the Star Wars Story Group, that has all changed. The modus operandi has been to have everything connect but not in an intrusive way– one that feels more natural to reward the more hardcore fans as well as to intrigue new fans.
