Well, it was bound to happen eventually: the
Rise of Skywalker rumor mill has finally churned out a genuine gut punch. Reddit user JediPaxis, who claims to be close
to the film’s production, has been busily leaking what they claim to be the entire plot
of the film over the last month or so. Their latest revelation has to do with C-3PO,
and, if it’s got any truth to it, it seems that more than a few fans’ hearts are going
to be broken into pieces. Of course, it’s important to point out that
this report has been in no way confirmed. The rumors around The Rise of Skywalker have
been flying fast and furious of late, and nothing substantial has come from any official
sources that back up JediPaxis’ leaks. That said, the reports offered up by JediPaxis
carry an air of legitimacy for one compelling reason: several of the plot points which they
have put forward have been verified by Star Wars fan sites, who each cite their own independent
sources. Bespin Bulletin and Jason Ward of MakingStarWars.com
have both corroborated specific elements of JediPaxis’ reports — so there’s a good chance
some of these leaks contain at least some accurate information. It should also be mentioned that The Rise
of Skywalker is currently in the midst of reshoots, so some of the plot details that
are being reported on at this time could easily change by the time the final cut hits theaters. Having said all of that, do be aware: potentially
huge spoilers for The Rise of Skywalker lay ahead. This particular rumor revolves around a mysterious
dagger which was once owned by a Force user loyal to the Sith, and upon it is inscribed
a message in an unidentifiable language. During the course of the film, Rey, Poe, and
Finn are led to believe that this dagger may be the key to locating a Wayfinder, a device
that for plot reasons is desperately sought after by both the movie’s heroes and villains. Putting a long story short: it has a lot to
do with this guy right here. Luckily, the heroes are able to locate the
dagger, but C-3PO despite being fluent in over six million forms of communication can
only identify the inscription as an ancient Sith language, one which he cannot translate
due to restrictions in his programming. Finn, Rey and Poe subsequently enlist the
aid of an old acquaintance of Poe’s named Zorri Bliss to track down someone capable
of hacking the protocol droid’s programming, thus allowing him to provide a translation. They’re able to do so, but there’s a catch. And it’s a pretty significant catch, too. Zorri’s contact informs Rey, Poe, and Finn
that he can get them what they want but if he does, C-3PO’s memory will be completely
wiped. Understandably, the heroes are reluctant to
lose their faithful companion, but this is where C-3PO finally gets his moment in the
spotlight. The droid insists that the procedure be carried
out, knowing full well that, for all intents and purposes, it will lead to his death. Zorri’s contact does his thing, and the modification
results in a new, red-eyed look for 3PO, as seen in the D23 trailer that debuted earlier
this year. The droid is then able to read the dagger’s
inscription, which reveals the location of the Wayfinder. Once his task is complete, C-3PO reboots — and
after that happens, he’s no longer the droid he once was, instead now little more than
a blank slate. It’s worth noting that C-3PO has appeared
in every single Star Wars film save for Solo: A Star Wars Story. It’s also safe to say that he’s been more
prone to cowardice than heroism during that time. But if The Rise of Skywalker is to be the
character’s last on-screen appearance, which it almost certainly is, it seems apt to finally
give this iconic protocol droid a genuine moment of heroic self-sacrifice. “I never knew I had it in me.” Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about your favorite

Because the saga ended with return of the Jedi, period!! In my eyes and Hart the sequel trilogy is non existent . rogue one was awesome. Gareth Edwards should have made this trilogy. He gets it.

    "Let the past die, kill them if you have to."

    Due to royalties to George Lucas when the main characters are displayed in the new Disney STAR WARS, Bob Iger and Kathleen Kennedy are greedy terminating all the original characters.

    This is how it goes when greed and stupidity are joint. Kathleen Kennedy and Bob Iger thought they could skip the main characters and create new ones just to avoid paying royalties to George Lucas.

    The same goes for Galaxy's Edge where non of the "worlds" are named after the planets and places in the OT. Nothing from Leia, Han or even Luke.

    No wonder Galaxy's Edge are empty. Nothing reminds of the original STAR WARS, the prices are ridiculous and there is only one ride, two with the next opening in January.

    How come things that are common sense for the average fan, is totally foreign for the worlds highest paid CEO's in the film industry????

    Who really cares at this point? The Last Jedi was a dumpster fire and JJ Abrams is going to ruin episode 9 like he ruined the Star Trek franchise. They couldn’t even get funding for the next Kelvin timeline movie. I love Star Wars, I used to buy all the merch and even loved the prequels warts, sand and all. I was even ok with the Force Awakens but I haven’t rewatched either of the Disney Star Wars films and didn’t even go see Solo in theaters and haven’t wanted to watch it on Netflix. I even went to see that animated Clone Wars movie in theaters that’s how crappy Disney Star Wars is to a 32 year old fan.

    Likely he'd be revived in a future TV series or something.

    No one dies anymore in fiction unless something in the real world demands it.

    As 3PO and in particular R2 have been completely sidelined in the mess that is the DISNEY era, then really its not the loss it seems. Both characters legacy have been ignored in favour of a DISNEY DROID who lost his/her appeal after one movie.

    It could be that 3PO will be back but with a new actor. Anthony Daniels is stepping away from the part for sure.

    Star Wars as a franchise, has been wiped, and flushed. YouTube still hasn't figured it out somehow. This whole new trilogy. I've seen zero of any of it (watching any of the movies). And yet YouTube and social media, have had it everywhere. And its probably taken more time, for it being just idiotic, than any movie normally should. When/how/why did movies come to be about plot leaks? Or rumored/ potential plot leaks? You're discussing garbage.

    And here’s the problem: why would the characters care about altering 3PO’s memory? They’ve done nothing with him. They’ve been on no adventures, he hasn’t served or been of utility to them. This is the characters being emotional about something for of the audience and is lazy writing.

By the way, were gonna kill off all of the main characters in a way that is meaningless, and insulting to the fan base. After all, we bought the franchise for a gazillion dollars, cause of the fanbase, but we really dont care about you guys. Hey, let's kill off all the jedi and Sith while were at it..we dont need those guys anyway….Should make for a blockbuster!

    I had to watch this because I have no real interest in the rest of the movie and will no longer give Disney another dollar.

    EDIT: Now I'm sorry I even did that. He's a droid. If you can "modify his programming" you can also perform a backup of said programming and then restore him to his previous state without a single bit of lost data after you're done getting the info you need. Good lord Disney is just raping and abusing this franchise worse than a Clinton on Epstein Island.
