The star wars series has given us a bunch of iconic characters which we can never forget. Here is a list of the most iconic characters of the Star Wars franchise.
In every good movie the hero always has a kick-ass sidekick who everyone adores. The sidekicks are often portrayed as being the hero’s prodigy and both the hero and the sidekick work together to kill the villain. Chewbacca is a hairy half man-half dog looking sidekick who was based on George Lucas’s dog named Indiana and this why Chewbacca became so emotionally attached to the character. He is an exceptionally good sidekick and supports Han solo throughout his journey. Chewbacca is also a very well trained fighter and is well versed in driving, shooting a crossbow and mechanical work
Han solo is one of the most loved characters from the star war franchise even more beloved than Luke Skywalker. Han solo is a space cowboy with a charming smile and crazy skills and is also a very good smuggler. He is also the most relatable character in the franchise and the way he plays his role comes off as very believable.
Darth vader is one of the most iconic villains out there. He is so famous that people who haven’t even watched even a single episode of the star wars series know who dart vader is. He is also known as Anakin Skywalker. He trained with Obi-Wan Kenobi in hopes of becoming the chosen one but turned evil when that plan failed.
