Top 5 Star Wars Characters


5) Darth Maul

Darth Maul a huge fan favourite despite only appearing in Episode 1. Maul is portrayed Ray Park in the film and never spoke a word but it was his double-ended Light Saber that caught the fans eyes. Darth Maul was the apprentice of Darth Sideous himself before being slain by Obi-Wan using his master's saber (even though he didn't really die). Maul reappeared in the animated series 'the Clone Wars' but never again in a film, Ultimately being killed by Darth Vader. 

4) Yoda

Yoda is perhaps the most world known character by people from the world over and star Wars fans of any generation. Yoda was both voiced and puppeteered by Frank Oz who also worked on The Muppets and Sesame Street. Even Warwick Davis was costumed as him for part of Episode 1! Yoda is a Jedi master and mastered some of the most well known Jedi including Mace Windu, Count Dooku and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

3) Chewbacca

Chewbacca is the loveable hairy Wookiee from the original trilogy of the Star Wars Saga. Portrayed by Peter Mayhew in the original trilogy and episode 3 Chewbacca (Chewie) is one of the most lovable characters in the Star Wars universe even though he never speaks...(Any English anyway.) Chewbacca became First Mate to Han Solo at the age of 200 after Solo refused an order as an Imperial Guard to kill Chewie and to repay him decided to protect Solo with his life from there on out.

2) Count Dooku
Count Dooku is the famous Jedi-turned-Sith Lord who appeared in the later 2 films in the prequel trilogy. Dooku was originally trained by Jedi master Yoda and then went on to train Qui-Gon Jinn before being turned to the Dark side by Darth Sideous and given the name 'Darth Tyranus'. Dooku is portrayed by the legendary actor Christopher Lee who has also taken to the music scene by releasing a HEAVY METAL album at the age of 90.....90!

1) Mace Windu

Mace Windu has to be my favourite Star Wars character of all time. I know what you may be saying "But Kai, the prequels were rubbish!" Well it just may be that the prequels weren't as good as the original trilogy but they weren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be. The prequels were the films that were coming out when I was growing up so I have a greater connection to them even though the originals were amazing. Mace Windu is played by the magnificent Samuel L. Jackson and that in itself pretty much gives him first place. I joke but Mace Windu is a Jedi Master along with Yoda and other Jedi, he is one of the 'coolest' Jedi and he has a purple lightsaber. I love purple!
