We recently got to visit with legendary actor, Anthony Daniels, who has been the voice and embodiment of C-3PO since the very beginning of Star Wars. Daniels is set to appear in the new LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special and shared why he thinks audiences will enjoy this new celebration of Life Day.

“I think people are going to have fun over the holiday season talking about it
and explaining to kids, well, this is about this and this is about that,” Daniels shared, “And then let’s go watch the movie. So it’s an all around winner.”

When prompted about about what his initial thoughts were about doing another Holiday Special, after the self-admitted disappointment in the original, Anthony lamented,

“The first one had really surprised people about how crazy it was. And then, of course, when I saw what they were going to do and that it was LEGO, I was just thrilled to be asked. I was delighted because I know anything with LEGO and anything with Star Wars LEGO, it’s going to be a blast. I mean, look at the LEGO movie. The first one, I had what?, two lines in that. I adored being in it and the audience adored 3PO being in it. And as I said before, LEGO has been a wonderful companion to Star Wars. They were made for each other, and they only discovered each other, I think if I’m right, around the… Yeah, after the third film Return of the Jedi. So I think people who remember the original holiday special will be surprised. Hey, and give it a chance. Don’t ignore it because it’s got those words in it. This is different. This is fun. And it also references so many memories that audiences have around the world.”

Special thanks to Anthony Daniels for his time with is!
