If you don’t love Star Wars, there is something verifiably weird going on with you. George Lucas’ sprawling space opera is as immediate as it is fanciful, presenting modern-day myths and awesome space wizards with laser swords. Today, we’re looking back at the nine epic films in the series and counting down or thirty favorite characters from the series.
Did your favorite make the cut? Is the Force strong with this list? Let’s get into it. Note that we’re only counting canon characters on this list, so you won’t be seeing any far-flung Legends characters who show up in older books. Likewise, be forewarned: major spoilers for all nine films, all of the canon TV shows and even some recent canon video games. You’ve been warned.
