Extra unhappy information. Dave has gone. I don’t assume 3PO ever confronted Vader’s mighty presence on set, aside from as a bag of bits on Chewie’s shoulders within the carbon freezer. However Dave’s iconic determine dominated the completed movie in ’77 and has finished so ever since. And can proceed to take action.
