Star Wars: C-3PO Actor Reveals He's Returning For An Upcoming Project

Famous for his role as C-3PO in Star Wars, Anthony Daniels has suggested that he will be back for yet another project. He first wore the unforgettable C-3PO golden suit back in 1977's Star Wars, later known as Star Wars: A New Hope.

He was back in the same role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Nonetheless, in 2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story, Daniels played the role of a human slave.

The character was based on a robot from a German 1927 sci-fi film, Metropolis. It was designed by Ralph McQuarrie. George Lucas first thought that the robot would have an American accent, but he abandoned his plans on hearing Daniels test the role.

Over the years, Daniels' voice as Threepio has earned him a lot of recognition, which is why he has been in video games, documentaries, special, and many Star Wars-based animated series such as Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars.

It looks like Daniels will be back at his role once again based on some photos he shared on his Instagram account. He was wearing full motion-capture gear and added the caption, "Finally, a new suit - that fits!"

In the post, he also tagged Ealing Studios. Here is the post.

The post has had many fans speculating about what the actor will appear in next. People keep making guesses, with many believing that he will be in Obi-Wan Kenobi, an upcoming series, or even Andor, Ahoska, and even the third season of The Mandalorian.

According to some, the suit is a sign that he appears in a video game.

Some believe that the suit might have something to do with Star Wars: A Droid Story, an upcoming project initially announced in December 2020. The project promises to introduce audiences to "a new hero" who will apparently be under the guidance of the legendary R2-D2 and C-3PO.

For this project, Lucasfilm Animation will have to work with visual effects experts at Industrial Light and Magic with the goal of coming up with new opportunities for retelling the Star Wars story.

Whatever the case might be, Daniels seems pretty excited about the project he is currently involved in. Clearly, he is enjoying the motion capture suit more than he enjoyed a practical suit which he had to wear on every installment of the Star Wars story, with the exception of The Phantom Menace.

Otherwise, for now, fans have no option but to keep guessing what the post means for the future of the famous Star Wars franchise.
