Captain of the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo comes to believe in the cause of the Rebel Alliance as he takes on the Galactic Empire with friends Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca in the original trilogy.

Like Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of few Jedi to survive Order 66, which named Jedi as traitors to the Republic. He is Anakin and Luke Skywalker’s mentor. The character, played by Alec Guinness in the original trilogy and by Ewan McGregor in the prequel trilogy, is so popular that a new Disney series about him, starring McGregor, recently began shooting.

When Yoda is first seen, he is introduced as the most powerful Jedi in the Star Wars universe and one of the wisest. He is the Grand Master of the Jedi Council and the one of very few who survived Order 66, the command to kill all Jedi. Yoda lives in exile after confronting Darth Sidious, the Dark Lord of the Sith, whose goal is to restore the Sith to power. He eventually serves as Luke Skywalker’s master, helping him learn the truth about his background and bring balance to The Force.

7. Boba Fett

> Star Wars movies appearance: Episodes II, V, VI

Though he barely has any lines in the original trilogy, Boba Fett became one of its most popular characters, thanks to his slick armor, intimidating demeanor, and array of futuristic gadgets. Boba Fett is a clone of Jango Fett, a famed Mandalorian bounty hunter.

Like several other characters on this list, Boba Fett was thought to be dead — having been eaten by a carnivorous, sand-dwelling sarlacc in “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.” But he survives and returns to the franchise in the more recent movies. Boba Fett appears in season two of “The Mandalorian.”

Luke Skywalker is Princess Leia’s twin brother. He becomes a Jedi master after training in the ways of the Force under Yoda himself.

Luke Skywalker trains his nephew Ben Solo (Kylo Ren) but loses him to the Dark Side, and this haunts him for decades. He lives in solitude until Rey finds him and she convinces him to train her.
