As if our expectations for the next installment in the Star Wars Saga couldn't get any higher, one of the stars of Star Wars Episode VII, who's been a part of the franchise longer than most, has upped the ante. Anthony Daniels, who has portrayed C-3PO in almost every incarnation of the character, recently took to Twitter and had some bold words for those awaiting Episode VII.
"No movie sequel is better than The Empire Strikes Back." You might eat those words for Xmas dinner in 2015. Joy & Indigestion to the world!

That is certainly high praise coming from him. Most still consider Episode V to be the high water mark for the franchise, and many doubt that Episode VII will be able to live up to, or top, Empire. It's best not to get our expectations up to high, but it's hard not get excited by things like this.
Hopefully we'll all agree with Anthony when Episode VII hits theaters on December 18th, 2015!
