Star Wars: Episode IX Weaponized C-3PO Explained

Posted by Dustin on April 4, 2019 at 10:09 AM CST

I first remember hearing this rumor of C-3PO wearing Chewbacca's bandolier and holding his Bowcaster over at Next thing you know, a leaked poster image confirms the action, but now we have even more details on what exactly is going on with C-3PO. have dug up some loose ends on this portion of the story and it may end up being a bigger part than initially thought. Read below-

There’s planet where it snows with a droid factory and the main cast visits a droid factory.
On snowfall planet, See-Threepio reluctantly has his memory uploaded to Artoo-Detoo which leads to some funny issues for Artoo.

This appears to explain the “Rambo” See-Threepio I wrote about a while ago which was later confirmed by The Geekiverse poster leak.

On the snow planet, the new droid D.O. is introduced around the factory sequence and his help is required. He might be related to Keri Russell’s character.

In the droid factory on the snow planet there is a “Bad Robot,” Battle Droids,” and droids that relate to or resemble John Williams scores somehow. Basically there’s a lot of Easter Eggs.

The heroes are helped off the snowing planet by a character in purple and gold which makes me think it is Keri Russell’s character, as she was described to me as “rose-gold extremely elegant armor but with a purple under suit and a helmet that has the shape of an Olympic cycling helmet.” This costume lines up with the recent poster leak pretty well and another leak which has her listed as “Zorii.”

So if Threepio is backed up to some kind of storage device on Artoo, what are they doing with Threepio? Are the loading another program into his body that explains why he has weapons? Is the rebellion weaponizing standard droids to fight back against The First Order? I was told the MacGuffin isn’t apparent at the start of the film and this is part of how it evolves as the story progresses. Many sources have said that Threepio is pretty important to kicking things off.
