Although most, if not all Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens talk at this point is unfounded - seems to "think" he'll be back, and everyone thinks that the new trilogy will focus on the kids of Luke, and Han Solo and Leia - that doesn't hinder our excitement.
The latest Star Wars alum to hint of his return is the man behind everyone's favorite protocol droid C-3PO, . Here's what the actor teased us with in a recent interview with Digital Spy:
Look, it's all very early days and I don't want to wear anybody out by speculating or letting you waste your energy by saying 'What do you think? I'm certainly not sitting by the phone, but it's always nice when it rings. Do you know what I mean? It never occurred to me that it would happen. Everybody's really happy that Disney have taken over the mantle. Kathy Kennedy is so well loved and she is carrying George Lucas's torch so much further.
It's not much to go on, but I couldn't imagine a Star Wars movie without at least one of our beloved droids...
