Anthony Daniels Teases C-3PO’s Return In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

Out of all the original and/or prequel trilogy cast members rumored to return in the seventh Star Wars installment, one could argue that the most reasonable choice to come back is C-3PO – since the protocol droid ought to still be functioning when Episode VII begins.

The Question is, will Anthony Daniels reprise as the golden-plated robot (fluent in “over six million forms of communication”) in Episode VII? Well, here is what the actor said at his spotlight panel at NYCC 2013, as reported by Film Buff Online.

"Walls have ears. And we know what they look like. They're very big ears…the man inside the C-3P0 costume stated as to why he wouldn't be speaking at all about the impending sequel while at the same time pantomiming a set of Mickey Mouse ears… However, towards the end of the panel, Daniels was asked about being the only actor who appeared in all six episodes of the franchise and maybe seven?"

Yes, I am the only actor to be in all seven because I feel - Daniels replied before catching himself. "Six! Whatever." He then went on to pantomime a call back to his "big ears" comment.

So do you want to see C-3PO return in Episode VII? Or would you rather that the film introduce new droid sidekicks to go along with a new generation of heroes?
