Like all good movie trailers, the one for the final film in the “Star Wars” series, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” raises more questions than it answers.

But there’s one especially big question nagging people on Twitter: Why is BB-8 hanging around with a hair dryer unicycle?

See?

The appliance-like droid is named Dio, according to IGN, which offered no other details.

Naturally, you can’t tease a character that looks like that and not get the Twittersphere speculating. One personal care appliance in particular kept being mentioned:

Yes, the hair dryer was a popular theory, but others had different interpretations.

When I first saw this new Droid, I thought it was a megaphone on a wheel, and now all I want it to do is just yell unpopular opinions & random facts 🤣#EpisodeIX #StarWars pic.twitter.com/quSo4s4keg

“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” will premiere Dec. 20.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story said that Dio the droid was seen with R2-D2, not BB-8.
