A new trailer for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hit YouTube yesterday, and fans are losing it, because there’s a scene where C-3POis saying his goodbyes, like someone’s about to die.
By the way, this is the last of the nine films in the main “Star Wars” story line.
There’s a scene where some little welding droid is doing work on the back of C-3PO’s head, and Poe Dameron asks, quote, “What are you doing there, Threepio?”
And he replies, quote, “Taking one last look, sir, at my friends.”
Rey and Finn are in the room, too, and they look pretty emotional. R2D2 has a little mini-fit and has to be comforted by C-3PO and Chewbacca lets out a sad roar.
So does C-3PO die? Or fly out or whatever the robot equivalent of death is? Something tells me the fact that they’re showing this scene means he does NOT die. Then again, this IS the end of the so-called “Skywalker Saga.”
And remember… they’ve already killed off Han and Luke. Is Threepio any more important than them?
If you think about it, they still need to give Carrie Fisher a proper send off since she died before filming even began on this movie. So maybe a sacrifice from Threepio is how they’ll resolve the emotional impact of Leia’s storyline as well???
