C-3PO at Star Wars Celebration Europe

Anthony Daniels will arrive in Germany

For the next couple of years Star Wars is going to be a apart of our every day lives. To be fair, isn’t it already? To get a jump start on the Star Wars insanity that will be coming, Mania plans on attending Star Wars Celebration Europe. A major cast member has said he will be attending Celebration Europe II. That man is none other than C-3PO himself, Anthony Daniels. 

Here is the official press release from Star Wars.com. 

Anthony Daniels, the actor behind C-3PO, the golden protocol droid that was a central character in all six Star Wars movies, is scheduled to attend Star Wars Celebration Europe July 26-28 in Essen, Germany.  Daniels will be attending the weekend fan festival to sign autographs and meet fans in the Celebration Autograph Hall as well as appear on the main Celebration Stage for an interview with Warwick Davis. 

No stranger to Star Wars Celebrations, Daniels is always entertaining. In addition to his considerable contributions to the movies, the actor is steeped in Star Wars lore, having spent much of the past three years at the narrator of the spectacular symphony event, Star Wars- In Concert. Although he plays a character that is “…not very good at telling stories,” he does that very thing, every night at every concert performance. In shows across Europe, the USA, Mexico and Canada, the power of In Concert has completely changed Daniels’ feelings towards the whole Star Wars saga. He’s thrilled and honored to be a part of the whole phenomenon.

67 years old and he still looks good.  I'm sure he'll be looking forward to working on the new films soon in his usual capacity.  But when the time ultimately comes to finally move on from him within the next decade or so, it'll be tough to fill his shoes.

RaithMan, there will be no need to fill them shoes.  C3P0 will alwasr be the coolest robot in the Galaxie...

Eh..... we may end up having a big debate over that one Zillaman as I'm sure there are others that will qualify for that title.  Ha ha..... R2 or Optimus for starters, followed by the usual Transformer favorites like Megatron, Soundwave  Bumblebee or Starscream.  We could toss in Voltron (most people don't know that there were actually 3 versions, not 2 that most commonly are familiar with).  We may get a sentimental submission for GigantorGoBots???  Even though they're now properties of the Transformers line, someone would have to have a good wiff of the dojo bag to make that title claim.  We might have a closet Mighty Orbots chant.  Anyone besides me remembers that show on ABC during Saturday mornings??  Robotix??  7-Zark7 from Battle of the Planets.  Or Lost in Space's Robot, or Maximillian from Black Hole... maybe even the one from Forbidden Planet.  Ok, I'm showing my damn age.  There are more, but too many to list and I have to dash off to work... BOOOOO.

RaithManan, don't forget VinC.E.N.T. from The Black Hole. I thought he was pretty cool.

Me... er... I mean Blackblood!

I saw Daniels at the SW concert and he was most entertaining.  Can't get to Essen but anyone going . . . have a great time.

what else does he have to do? Not like his career skyrocketed or anything. Gey Disney to re-release the Droids xmas special.
