This was such a hard list to do because Star Wars has so many brilliant characters, especially Jar Jar Binks right! 😉 It was very hard for me to make this list because I wanted to add so many more, like Luke Skywalker, Padme Amidala, Rey, Chewbacca, BB-8, Obi-Wan, Stormtrooper nr. 271 (you know that one) etc. I feel like my list is based on characters that have affected and impressed me the most and I think this is a list that would look very different from person to person. So here’s my list, in no particular order!
#1 Anakin Skywalker (before Darth Vader)
Yes, Anakin Skywalker before he became evil. He was a brilliant and clever young lad and then he grew up and became the most gorgeous person in the Star Wars universe. So a young Renate, who sat there at the cinema watching her first Star Wars movie (Star Wars: Episode III, because it was my brothers turn to choose the movie) and didn’t understand anything… Except that this boy Anakin had so much good in him and love, and he just chose the wrong path. WHY ANAKIN, WHY?? He will always be one of my favorite characters though!
I really like C-3PO but sometimes he can be such a “parent” and that’s why I chose R2-D2. I can’t believe that he is so funny, and I don’t even understand a word of what he’s saying. Then again, I feel like R2-D2 and C-3PO are the funniest when they’re together. I also like that R2-D2 is so brave, and that he’s blue.
#3 Princess Leia
A more badass person is hard to find! I just love Leia, she is cool, caring and super sweet. I really don’t think I need to say more!
I think it’s the way Yoda talks that really gets me. Or the fact that he is the wisest creature in the universe. I just absolutely love Yoda!! He also show us that size doesn’t matter, or muscles. If you ever want a counselor, Yoda you must seek.
#5 Han Solo
The bold, the arrogant, the one and only Han Solo. I actually wasn’t that big of a fan of him but as time changed, I started to like him more and more and now he’s one of my favorite characters. I like that he wants to show this tough side but on the inside he’s a softie. He’s also very funny!
So that’s my list of the 5 best Star Wars characters! Forever grateful that you read this, you are brilliant. May the force be with you!
