Noooooooo.

Giphy

This final film in the Star Wars series (for now) will also be the last time we see our favorite character, the human protocol droid C-3PO, who is fluent in more than 7 million forms of communication.

There are no words.

How Is R2 Going To Cope?

In January, Daniels announced on Twitter that it was his last day filming for Star Wars. He's been there since the very beginning, when A New Hope first hit theaters in 1977.

Daniels, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are the only original three members from that movie that will still be seen in the final film. (Fisher will appear posthumously in Rise Of Skywalker.)

C-3PO is so integral to Star Wars that he's appeared in every one of its films. Even in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Daniels played Tak, a Kessel miner.

3-PO was only seen briefly in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, but in The Rise Of Skywalker, the droid plays a much bigger role.

We're still not quite sure what happens, but that scene in the last trailer where the robot says he's taking his "last look" at his friends signals something horribly sad is coming.

Daniels spoke with "Vanity Fair" in May to reflect on his time with the franchise.

While he still can't say exactly what's going to happen, he's practically going to bust a gasket just from keeping the secret:

“You have no idea. It’s frustrating for you that I cannot tell you the complete truth; it’s frustrating for me as well because I’m dying to say.”
