RUMOUR: First look at C3PO from Star Wars Episode VII?

February 6th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well, we know that R2D2 is back for star Wars Episode VII (remember this story?), but there has been questions over the return of C3PO, especially since director JJ Abrams had commented “How do you do Star Wars without R2D2?” but said “They have different agents,” when asked about C3PO.

But now, thanks to French magazine Studio Cine Live’s latest cover which seems to be an Episode VII exclusive, we get a confirming look at him.

He certainly looks older and somewhat run down – which is a little sad, all things considered – but the fact that he’s holding a giant number seven would seem to confirm the return of everyone’s favourite protocol droid.

Thanks to Movieweb for the pic.

So, are we all glad to see him return?


We have reason to believe that this report may be unreliable. We are going to keep it live, but consider it RUMOUR until we learn more.

Star Wars: Episode VII is released on December 18th, 2015

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
