Star Wars C-3PO one-shot comic book cover cropped

A few weeks ago, new photos were released for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of which featured the famous droids R2-D2 and C-3PO. The image confirmed that the latter droid will have a red arm in the film (a feature that was spotted in early merchandising). At the time, everyone wondered why the golden protocol droid had one red arm, but as we all know, director J.J. Abrams keeps his “mystery box” securely closed.

Now, it turns out we will soon find out how C-3PO got that new red arm in Star Wars Special: C-3PO #1, a new one-shot comic book from Marvel that’s part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens program that will see 20 new stories in various formats (books, comics, and activity books, and more) leading up to the new movie.

The one-shot is an all-new story, written by James Robinson with art by Tony Harris, featuring C-3PO on a solo adventure that leads up to his appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Speaking about the new comic, writer James Robinson said the following in a statement released by Marvel:

“That’s a really exciting part of doing this story,” says Robinson. “I saw a photo of C-3PO with his red arm the other day and I thought ‘Wow, I’m the writer who gets to explain that.’”

Robinson is referring to the new photo released a few weeks ago, which you can see here below in the Image Gallery, along with the cover image for Star Wars Special: C-3PO #1.

Star Wars Special: C-3PO #1 will be published in December 2015; Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
