Gloriously witty, keen and spirited JJ Abrams, Director of Star Wars The Rise of SkywalkerThe odds of me ever writing a book were approximately Oh, never mind My golden companion worries about such things I don t I have indeed now written a book telling my story, in my voice, not his recognising that our voices and our stories are inextricably intertwined When Star Wars burst on to the big screen in , an unfailingly polite golden droid called C PO captured imaginations around the globe But C PO wasn t an amazing display of animatronics with a unique and unforgettable voiceover Inside the metal costume was an actor named Anthony DanielsIn this deeply personal memoir, Anthony Daniels recounts his experiences of the epic cinematic adventure that has influenced pop culture for thanyears For the very first time, he candidly describes his most intimate memories as the only actor to appear in every Star Wars film from his first meeting with George Lucas to the final, emotional days on the set of Star Wars The Rise of SkywalkerWith a foreword by JJ Abrams and never before seen photography, this book is a nostalgic look back at the Skywalker saga as it comes to a close I Am C PO The Inside Story reveals Anthony Daniels vulnerability, how he established his role and what he accomplished, and takes readers on a journey that just happens to start in a galaxy far, far away VERY PLEASED WITH THIS BOOK AND THE STORIES FROM MR DANIELS MY FAVORITE STAR WARS CHARACTER AND NOW WE KNOW THE BEHIND THE SCENES STORIES OF THE LIFE OF A STAR WARS ICON, C 3P0 OUR BELOVED GOLDEN BOY DROID GREAT BOOK,HAPPY TO HAVE IT AND WAS A NICE CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR 2019. Couldn t wait to read this book, so pre ordered it weeks ago As a big Star Wars fan I ve been lucky enough to meet the author a few times and he is a charming, interesting and generous man.There are some brilliant details in here, and that just about got me through the book.However the writing style reminded me of a teenager back at school trying far too hard to impress, and long overdue some constructive feedback from their English grammar teacher Long rambling sentences dotted with odd phrases, random commas and often four or five scattergun descriptive adjectives from a thesaurus Followed by short sentences without verbs And several phrases that made no sense at all my room was functionally small Nope At times I found the style and turn of phrase almost unreadable, but I got through it because the content is wonderful, and Anthony Daniels positivity and enthusiasm are infectious. A great insight into the world and workings of C3PO, both as the character and the actor I thoroughly enjoyed reading this entertaining and insightful book. The book starts off quite good with some interesting perspective on being an actor and on the set of Star Wars It quickly turns into woe is me, I don t have a bigger part in this film Maybe the nextoh Threepio was never a lead character, an important one but never a lead.I should have guessed this from his interview on the One Show.He also starts to talk about Rise To Skywalker which is when I stopped I ll pick it up once I ve seen the film.It s a good insight into some of the ideas that were filmed but later deleted but the author comes across a lot as someone who believed he should have had a bigger role and didn t I liked C3PO in the original films not so much the prequels or recent films.
