Photograph of C-3PO
This button was released in a series of photo buttons used to promote the film, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Portrayed by English actor, Anthony Daniels, C-3PO is a humanoid protocol droid who is often seen alongside his droid companion, R2-D2. Boasting that he is "fluent in over six million forms of communication", C-3PO was originally created by Anakin Skywalker to assist his mother around the house. From there, C-3PO found himself at numerous pivotal moments in the series history. Known for his polite and worry-prone personality, C-3PO is often used as a comedic character within the narrative. Alongside R2-D2, he is one of the only characters to have appeared in every film of the series.
