C-3PO Says Star Wars: Episode VII is Better Than The Empire Strikes Back

By Gerald Lynch on at

C-3PO is fluent in over six million forms of communication. One of them is the language of "hype". Anthony Daniels, the man behind the Star Wars protocol droid's golden mask, took to Twitter this week to talk about his involvement in the new Star Wars sequel, Episode VII. And, according to the actor, Episode VII is shaping up to be even better than the classic The Empire Strikes Back. Daniels tweeted:

"No movie sequel is better than The Empire Strikes Back." You might eat those words for Xmas dinner in 2015. Joy & Indigestion to the world!

Could Star Wars: Episode VII be the best Star Wars film ever? If it truly is even on a par with Empire Strikes Back it'd make it the best entry into George Lucas's space saga in years, instantly elevating it into the higher pantheons of sci-fi cinema.

Episode VII has now wrapped filming, with production now focussing on visual effects, some of which will be created in London's new Industrial Light and Magic studio. The film opens worldwide on December 18th, 2015. Click here for everything there is to know on Star Wars: Episode VII. [@aDaniels3PO]
