Mark Hamill is asked if C-3P0 ever gains his freedom or if he’s stuck with the Skywalkers forever. He then expands on Anthony Daniels finding the fountain of youth of sorts, leading us into the good stuff.
"“He’s in every single Star Wars movie. All the prequels. He’s in Rogue One. He’s in Solo. Whoops. I hope that’s not… He’s in every single Star Wars movie. That’s not such a reveal. All Star Wars fans expect him to be in every movie.”"
The inquiry is one that was not prying or probing one bit, but sometimes the Force works in mysterious ways.
Although that is true about C-3P0, I honestly thought that he and R2-D2’s run of being in every Star Wars film would end with Solo: A Star Wars Story. I was wrong.
It would be great if Han Solo bumps into the bumbling droid, lashing out one of his iconic sarcastic 3PO insults!

Honestly, I’m okay with this fan service and I freaked out a bit when they dropped by in Rogue One. Even though I know it’s coming now, I’ll certainly do the same thing this time around, too. The droid duo cameo is the Stan Lee of the Star Wars universe and it’s fantastic fan service.
Mark Hamill dusts off his reveal of the 3P0 cameo, saying:
“What are they going to do, fire me? Or kill me,” he says in jest. Oh Mark, Mark, Mark, Mark. This is another reason we love you.
That’s undoubtedly correct, Creed. Mark Hamill does not care, with his free spirit giving us fans what we all want. Honesty. Transparency. And, even a spoiler from time to time.
