Daniels revealed on Twitter that his time filming scenes for Star Wars: Episode IX 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.— Anthony Daniels (@ADaniels3PO) 28 January 2019
The actor has portrayed the gold-plated C-3PO in all but one of the ten Star Wars films released to date - only failing to appear in Solo - as well as reprising the role in the animated Clone Wars TV series.
Daniels' announcement clearly shows that the filming process on Star Wars: Episode IX is very nearly over, which could signal the release of a teaser trailer in the next couple of months. *Fingers crossed*
While the announcement brings an end to an era of Star Wars history, it does beg the question, what will Star Wars be like without the iconic droid duo of C-3PO and R2-D2? Especially with all of Disney's plans to extend the universe with a whole plethora of new films and TV shows in the works.
Regardless of that, it's been a blast to have witnessed Daniels portray 3PO on the big screen and it'll be interesting to see just what sort of role he plays in the final instalment of the Skywalker saga.
