C-3PO’s Best Moments from Star Wars

1 of 7

This protocol droid is one of the most recognizable characters in the Star Wars Universe. There are several moments worth exploring that prove he is often funny and helpful.

Played by Anthony Daniels in Star Wars, C-3PO made fans laugh and facepalm at the same time. His golden, unique design is unmistakable as is his personality. One moment he was unintentionally interrupting a very romantic moment between Han and Leia and the next he is finding a way to save his friends from imminent danger.

He’s intelligent and loyal but sometimes we can do without knowing the odds of successfully navigating in an asteroid field. Of all those moments we are going to be looking at some of the best from the Star Wars film franchise. Yes, there were times when C-3PO saved our heroes in some of the most innovative ways. As much as R2-D2 aggravated him, C-3PO stayed by his side and may have actually saved the galaxy in doing so. The two make a comedic pair even when times seem bleak.

When almost any language is like a second language to him he’s able to translate and talk his way out of multiple situations. Sometimes when he was silently present at something so profound we couldn’t help but nod our heads in respect.

He was a key player in several events in the Star Wars Universe and it’s time to take a closer look at them by venturing into a galaxy, far, far away. These moments are not listed in any particular order but are worthy of being called some of the best. Let’s begin with how his story began in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace on the hot desert planet Tatooine.
