Anthony Daniels has taken to Twitter to alert his followers that he has completed his filming as C-3PO for director J.J. Abrams’ Episode IX. Daniels could don the golden suit again if needed for any scheduled reshoots, but as of right now his time as the iconic protocol droid in the Skywalker theatrical saga has come to an end.
Today was 3PO's last on Episode IX. 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.
