My 5 Favorite Star Wars Characters

  1. 1.
    Luke Skywalker
    I love Luke more than I can possibly explain. I'm pretty sure I watched the original movies for the first time in 1997 or 1998, and I knew then even at 4 or 5 years old that Luke was my guy. I like his story, I like his conflict, and I like that he doesn't get the girl (for obvious reasons). Also, he was hardcore one of my childhood crushes—and definitely still is.
  2. 2.
    We've only seen Rey in one movie, but she's already one of my favorites. She's so strong and so interesting. Daisy Ridley is soo talented as well. I also really enjoy theorizing about her backstory. Lastly, I love that Lucasfilm made the new protagonist a young woman.
  3. 3.
    Obi Wan Kenobi
    He's definitely my favorite character in the prequels, but I really like him in "A New Hope" as well.
  4. 4.
    Princess/General Leia Organa
    Despite originally being painted as a damsel in distress, Leia is anything but that. I love how badass Leia gets throughout the movies, and I can't wait to see more of her in the next movie. I also love her relationship with Luke and that she's force sensitive without being a Jedi.

    Finn is such a great new character! He's funny, he's cute, and he's got a unique characterization that I love. Also, I want John Boyega to be my best friend. Watch him in interviews; he's hilarious.
