'Star Wars': C-3PO May Have Red Arm in 'The Force Awakens'

C-3PO has red arm

Much of the marketing thus far for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has focused on the newcomers to the franchise, so we haven't seen much of the original trilogy cast members who are returning to their iconic roles. Outside of one shot of someone (Luke?) placing a hand on the head of R2-D2, and a brief but sweet glimpse of Han Solo and Chewbacca in the second teaser, the veterans have been pushed to the back burner. Not that this should surprise anyone, as even Mark Hamill has said the young characters are what this new film is all about.

Today, though, one of the old staples of the series gets a moment in the spotlight. The character in question is everyone's favorite protocol droid, C-3PO, who apparently has undergone some repairs in the 30 years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

Making Star Wars shared a photo Twitter user Marc Zachacki took of a Star Wars themed soda can that's allegedly in Mexico grocery stores. The image on the can features the three main droids from the movie - R2-D2, BB-8, and C-3PO - with the interpreter of six million languages showing off his brand new red arm, which takes the place of the customary golden one he sported throughout the classic trilogy.
