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. They’re very big ears…” 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 -” then caught himself. “Six! Whatever” 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.
