Speaking on US chat show The View, Anthony Daniels revealed how he spoke to Rise Of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams on set for the film, and that Abrams wasn’t as keen to resign C-3PO to death as Daniels was.
“He’s not over,” Daniels said. “I said to [Abrams] when we were filming, ‘Maybe it’s time to put Threepio to sleep’, you know? To give him an end!
“And [Abrams] said, ‘Not on my watch’.”
