Just as he wrote his bittersweet words after he had filmed what he thought would be his last ever Threepio scenes on the Tantive IV back in 2003 while filming Revenge of the Sith, today he tweeted about his last day on IX.
Today was 3PO’s last on Episode IX. He’s sad – so am I. But we’re so proud to have worked with such a lovely, talented cast & crew lead by J.J. & Kathy. I’ll miss everyone but I’m glad to know that we’ve been making something exceptional together, to share with the waiting world.

Who knows if his final scenes were filmed on the corridors of the Tantive IV – wouldn’t that be the perfect coda to his 40+ year odyssey – but wherever his last scene was shot we want to pass on our hearty congratulations. He may well return in another role in future films, but it could be the last we see of C-3PO.

- Display options include swappable hands for C-3PO and 2- or 3-legged posing for R2-D2
