Anthony Daniels, who is best known to science fiction and genre fans as C3PO of ‘Star Wars’ fame has made the bold claim that the new 7th ‘Star Wars’ movie, which is directed by J.J. Abrams has the potential to best ‘The Empire Strikes Back,’ which remains the over all fan favorite from all the ‘Star Wars’ films.
The actor said that he thinks the new film may eclipse the popular Episode V.
“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!
