C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels posts emotional tweet after finishing ‘Episode IX’

In every Star Wars movie, viewers have been able to depend on the golden droid C-3PO as a calming, comic presence even as the franchise has expanded and changed over the last 40-odd years. 

But by the looks of it, the next instalment in the Skywalker saga might be the last we’ll see of 3PO and his good manners.

Actor Anthony Daniels, who has worn the golden droid suit since the earliest Star Wars days, just tweeted out what seems an awful lot like a goodbye to 3PO. Daniels tweeted that he’d had his last day shooting Star Wars: Episode IX, adding that he felt sadness about the whole thing.  

“Today was 3PO’s last on Episode IX,” Daniels wrote. “He’s sad — so am I. But we’re so proud to have worked with such a lovely, talented cast & crew lead by J.J. & Kathy.”

“I’ll miss everyone but I’m glad to know that we’ve been making something exceptional together, to share with the waiting world,” he continued. 

While Daniels doesn’t exactly spell out whether this means that C-3PO is somehow retiring from the franchise, or that – heaven forbid – something happens to the droid, but the tweet sure does read like a goodbye. 

It kind of makes sense, since it’s been made quite clear from the onset that Episode IX is the official conclusion to the Skywalker saga. And perhaps C-3PO just belongs in the Skywalkerverse, given that he was put together by Anakin himself once upon a time.

We’re a little sad too now, TBH.
