In a humorous slip of the tongue at NYCC this weekend, Anthony Daniels- after first claiming he would reveal NOTHING about Star Wars: Episode VII- let it slip that he will, indeed, be reprising C-3PO in the next film.
“Walls have ears. And we know what they look like. Theyâ€™re very big earsâ€¦â€ was how he began things, when initially questioned about Episode VII. But then later, in an unguarded moment, answering a question about how he was the only actor to appear in all six, “maybe seven,” films Anthony responded with, “Yes, I am the only actor to be in all seven because I feel -â€ then caught himself. â€œSix! Whateverâ€ he added, before eluding back to his “big ears” comment from earlier. Oops!
In all honesty, though, this is hardly an earth shattering admission. George Lucas has long maintained that C-3PO and R2D2 were meant to be the characters that unite the entire story from start to finish, through whose eyes we see the complete saga, so this is a surprise to no one. But it is nice to know that Daniels, at 67 years of age, is still game for playing the iconic character- especially with the recent rumors from Den Of Geek that Peter Mayhew may not be returning to don the Chewbacca costume.
