A new trailer for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” was released yesterday, and fans are freaking, because there’s a scene where C-3PO is saying his goodbyes like someone’s about to die. This is the last of the nine films in the main “Star Wars” storyline.
There’s a scene where a droid is doing work on the back of C-3PO’s head, and Poe Dameron asks, quote, “What are you doing there, 3PO?” C-3PO replies, quote, “Taking one last look, sir, at my friends.”
Rey and Finn are in the room, too, with an emotional look. R2D2 has a mini-fit and has to be comforted by C-3PO, and Chewbacca lets out a sad roar.
So does C-3PO die?
But think about this…CARRIE FISHER needs a proper send-off since she died before filming even began. Some suggest a sacrifice from ’3PO’ is how they will resolve the emotional impact of ‘Leia’s’ storyline as well.
