After two weeks in a row of nostalgic and, frankly, laughable footage from the late 1970s, what does this all mean? It stands to reason that the original Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi trailer will come out next week, but what's next after that? Will we finally get that trailer that was rumored earlier this month? Or, will LucasFilm re-release the prequel trilogy trailers first? Do we have two more weeks left until the Star Wars: Episode VII news we have been desperately waiting for? Or will it be five more weeks? Regardless, enjoy this slice of cutting edge 1970s technology, then read on for news about C3PO's possible return to the franchise.
Anthony Daniels, who played C3PO in all six of the Star Wars movies, had some interesting comments at New York Comic-Con 2013 last weekend, when asked why he wouldn't talk about Star Wars: Episode VII, pantomiming the "big ears" of Mickey Mouse.
He continued to tease the crowd again, when asked about being the only actor to appear in all six of the franchise's movies.
A innocent slip of the tongue? Or is C3PO coming back as well? Its all part of the waiting game.
