Anthony Daniels Returns For Star Tours II

Posted By Eric on October 15, 2010

We first heard about it in May 2009, and now we have confirmation: C-3PO (played as always by Anthony Daniels) will once again play a role in the Star Tours adventure with its 2011 revamp. The Disney Parks Blog posted photos of Daniels in the golden costume next to the full-size Starspeeder 1000 on a sound stage.

Daniels spoke to Disney Executive VP Tom Fitzgerald about the Star Tours II experience:

"Wow! Back in the gold suit for the first time since ?Revenge of the Sith,?? was Anthony?s reply. ?But on this occasion in front of a beloved Starspeeder, a bit like the one R2 and I?d repaired every day since Disneyland first opened the Star Tours Spaceport all those years ago. I?d enjoyed being a part of the original Star Tours, one of the most wonderful jobs I ever had. I?d been alerted that amazing things were in store for passengers on the new Starspeeder ? and for me too ? and so here I was again, working with many of the same creative teams, with even more spin and excitement than the first time."

Fitzgerald did say that these photos were taken from their work "back in April 2009", which validates at least the Anthony Daniels part of our original story. Was our source also correct about Geonosians, Biths, Boba Fett, and Admiral Ackbar appearing in Star Tours II? Time will tell!
