Star Wars legend Anthony Daniels unveils the name of his highly anticipated memoirs
More exciting news incoming from Star Wars Celebration.
Anthony Daniels, Star Wars legend and the droid we’ve all been looking for well over four decades teased us yesterday during the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker panel about the title of his highly anticipated upcoming memoirs.
After what has been a nail-biting few hours, we are pleased to bring you the title of this awesome new book: “I AM C-3PO: The Inside Story”
Discover the incredible untold story of one of Star Wars‘ most iconic characters, C-3PO, told by the man who knows him best.
“Did you hear that? They’ve shut down the main reactor! We’ll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.”
These words were the very first to be spoken in any Star Wars movie, and they were spoken by a droid: C-3PO. With his gleaming golden body and good-intentioned (yet worrisome) personality, C-3PO was there at the very beginning. Of course, C-3PO wasn’t actually a robot, or some amazing early animatronic creation – he was actually a man named Anthony Daniels.
Now, for the very first time, Anthony Daniels will tell C-3PO’s story in its entirety, from seeing the first concept images to the early stages of the final film in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: Episode IX, and in the process, will also tell his own. This includes his encounters with movie legends such as Sir Alec Guinness, what it was like working closely with George Lucas, and the friendships he formed with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and others. But being encased in a solid shell for countless hours also involved hardships, pain, and in some cases real physical danger.
In I am C-3PO: The Inside Story, Daniels candidly relays his humorous, unvarnished, and extraordinary story as the man inside the machine, providing fresh new insights for even the most die-hard of Star Wars fans.
