    While promoting his autobiography (I Am C-3PO - The Inside Story), Anthony Daniels has shared some interesting information about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, including the filming of Rey and Kylo Ren's big fight, a scene shared between C-3PO and R2-D2, and other small bits.





    Daniels was recently in France talking both about The Rise of Skywalker and his autobiography, and in the process he shared some interesting information about a number of topics. The information was relayed through Reddit via r/StarWarsLeaks user Futur_Alliance, who transcribed some details that we'll discuss after the break. Daniels talking to the press can be seen below, but since his most of his answers are in French, it may not be too helpful.

    However, Futur_Alliance was able to understand what Daniels was saying and was able to detail the main points of what he was talking about. We'll get into those things below...



    So far, R2-D2 has had a small - but nonetheless important - role in the sequel trilogy, between completing the map to reach Luke Skywalker at the end of The Force Awakens and convincing the disillusioned Jedi master to help by using an old recording of Leia in The Last Jedi. Fans have noticed that R2-D2 is largely not present in the marketing so far, and are left wondering if a gun-toting C-3PO will get all of the spotlight in the last saga film. Daniels was able to confirm one thing: R2-D2 has scenes with C-3PO on a desert planet (likely Pasaana), so we can presume we should be seeing more of the 'feisty little one' than we have in the previous two. As recounted in the thread:

    R2-D2 has been portrayed by Jimmy Vee since The Force Awakens, as original actor Kenny Baker was a creative consultant for the character's use in that movie before passing away in August 2016. Another actor portraying the character, at least for a certain part of production, is certainly unexpected. But at least we know that we're going to get more R2-D2 and C-3PO antics, which were spare in the last two films.

    But R2-D2 getting a bigger role doesn't mean that C-3PO is going to be a pushover. According to Daniels, C-3PO is an active part in the final journey that The Rise of Skywalker represents, which is something that he's hinted at since the big panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. As recounted in the thread:

    C-3PO generally has had less of a role in the adventures of the main films since The Phantom Menace, and although Attack of the Clones gave him plenty to do in the second half of the film, he didn't get much to do in Revenge of the Sith. So reversing the trend here is absolutely welcome.

    A greater amount of time filming also means that there's a greater amount of time that Anthony Daniels could watch from the sidelines as the other actors are performing. One such scene he described is the scene shown on the official poster revealed at D23: a fight between Rey and Kylo Ren, which was apparently a grueling sequence to film between Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver. As recounted in the thread:

    That last point is something that he shouldn't have to raise, but the perceptions of politics influencing a story has been a source of division among viewers.



    Daniels, however, doesn't believe that backlash to the new films will affect audience enjoyment of this last chapter. In fact, he thinks that J. J. Abrams and Chris Terrio managed to put together a fantastic story with an ending that ties up loose ends in a way that people will love. As recounted in the thread:

    [​IMG]



    One last note that Daniels left on was that audiences should be prepared to be surprised. As recounted in the thread:

    Considering that Abrams is already known for his secrecy, that's saying something. We're two months away from figuring out what those secrets are!





    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20, 2019.

    I had a brief encounter with Mr. Daniels last saturday in Metz, France.
    I asked about C3P0' read eyes and he said that was something he smoked.:D
    When I said to him that I think Babu Frik has something to do with CP30's red eyes he changed the subject.
    He said that he went to São Paulo and that he loved the Iguazú Falls in southern Brazil.
    A really nice guy and he speaks a very good french (better than mine I guess:().

    I'm so happy whenever I read anything suggesting we'll get more Artoo in TRoS.

    That's awesome, pleased for you Messi, thanks for posting about it.

    heheh. If you want to try, I like gifyu.com, it's not hard to figure out, it's worth making a (free) account, then you want to find the 'BBcode' link once you upload a picture, then you paste that link here (it'll be the 'full image' link that has [ img ]examplefilenamepath[ /img ] (but without the spaces in the [ img ] tags). :)

    @SKB posted two videos of the interview. Take the first video, go to 7:05.
    Anthony is speaking about Daisy Ridley filming the fight scene one sees in the poster.

    Listen carefully. My english is bad, but I'm certain of ONE thing : when Anthony is speaking about Daisy Ridley, he distinctly pronunces her name. But he says that she is "en train de faire la bataille avec... euh.... ce mec" that means "she is fighting with... erm... this guy". I mean he never pronunces the name of Adam Driver.
    Now still look closely : at 7:09 the audience starts to laugh when Anthony just says "ce mec". Look at the movement of his hand : something kind of a mix bertween "I'm kidding you" and "I wouldn't want to say more"...

    I'm sure this was intentional, Anthony speaking about Daisy Ridley fighting this guy.
    One theory I've read around here, speculates the one under Kylo's mask is not Kylo Ren...


    Your thoughts?

    Dark side of the Cantina Forum is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be... unnatural.

    So... do it.
