Nadat eerder Tim ‘Ackbar’ Rose, George Lucas en Mark Hamill al aangaven teleurgesteld te zijn over de sequel trilogie is het nu Anthony ‘C-3PO’ Daniels die zijn teleurstelling uit én aangeeft de fans te begrijpen. In een interview met Express Online zei hij het volgende:
“Well, yes. I do understand why the fans are unhappy… It speaks to a devotion that they care so much that they mind if someone messes with it. I understand people being critical of the films.”
Over de kritiek van Mark Hamill op de films en zijn eigen rol daarin had hij dit te melden:
“I know it has been particularly difficult for him (Hamill) lately because the new movies haven’t given him much to do. I certainly recognise that and can relate to it.
“In these new movies, I have felt like a table decoration. And that is difficult because I recognise this character (C-3PO) is worth so much more. But I understand it is a whole film, not a feature about C-3PO.”
“That is just my personal disappointment. I get paid whether or not he does anything but it would be nice for him to have a purpose.”
Over The Rise of Skywalker tenslotte:
“C-3PO has a major arc. I am very satisfied with what I had to do in this movie and I am very satisfied with everything I know about this movie.”
“…from everything I have seen so far, it is really rather good“
Overmorgen verschijnt Daniels’ biografie getiteld I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story waarin hij ongetwijfeld de nodige anecdotes zal delen.
