Star Wars fans are pretty excited about Episode VII but will the new movie really be better than the original trilogy? Anthony Daniels, the actor who played C3P0 in the original movies, thinks that the new Star Wars movie could be the greatest sequel of all-time.
Daniels took to Twitter to hype up the new film. According to C3P0, Star Wars: Episode VII will be better than The Empire Strikes Back.
“No movie sequel is better than The Empire Strikes Back.” You might eat those words for Xmas dinner in 2015. Joy & Indigestion to the world!

The new movie will take place about 30 years after Return Of The Jedi. In addition to Anthony Daniels returning to his iconic role for the new film, Star Wars: Episode VII will also feature the return of Kenny Baker as R2-D2, Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, and Harrison Ford as Hans Solo. The movie will also include new cast members like Andy Serkis, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o.
We’re pretty excited about the new Star Wars movie and we’re pretty confident that it’s going to be good. But better than The Empire Strikes Back… we’ll have to wait until December 18, 2015 to find out.
