Two Eras of Practical Effects Meet in Pumpkin Form!

These are cutest pumpkins we’ll meet this Halloween! We’re sure you’ll all recognize BB-8 from the onslaught of ads for The Force Awakens, but the cute little guy on the left is Huey, the costar of Douglas Trumbull’s 1972 classic Silent Running. Redditor wierzbowski85 carved this homage with an assist from their partner, and the result is a wonderful meeting of two different eras of sci-fi! You can see more shot of the droid buddies here!
