Anthony Daniels announced for Celebration Europe; “not sitting by the phone” for Episode VII call

Anthony DanielsReed announced today that Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) will be among the stars at Celebration Europe.

He also did an interview with Digital Spy, where he sidestepped sequel talk:

“Look, it’s all very early days and I don’t want to wear anybody out by speculating or letting you waste your energy by saying ‘What do you think?’

“I’m certainly not sitting by the phone, but it’s always nice when it rings. Do you know what I mean?”

Still, he can certainly afford to be vague: C-3PO is one of the characters that few expect to be totally absent from the new movies.

    I believe he’ll be back. For me, the question is will he be back in the suit or will they use something like the CGI Threepio for Star Tours 2 which looks fantastic…

    Agree with Jason, he’ll be back but it’s a great point about suit vs CGI. The most recent CG versions look amazing, and remember Artoo had largely reverted to a CG model in the late prequels. But J.J is a very hands-on guy and I’d expect to see an on-set Threepio voiced by (if not physically inhabbited by) Ant. Yeah I said it, ANT DANIELS!
