Updated February 8, 2016: Artist Tony Harris has stated that the reason the Star Wars Special: C-3PO one-shot was delayed falls down to Lucasfilm, who didn't approve the script until the end of Thanksgiving -- one week before the originally announced release date of December 2.

"Delays were caused by looooong approval processes with Lucasfilm on the script, and I was greenlit to start Thanksgiving weekend," Harris said on Facebook. "As I am inking and coloring this too, hence the March release date. Cheers!"
 

Original Story: Marvel have released a new teaser image for the Star Wars Special: C-3PO one-shot. Originally solicited to go on sale December 2, the issue was delayed without a stated reason with the current release date scheduled for March 30.

In addition to delving into the origin of C-3PO's new red arm, the Star Wars: Special: C-3PO one-shot will be the first time James Robinson and Tony Harris have worked together on a substantial basis since DC's Starman series.
