Star Wars is the gift that keeps on giving, but which Star Wars character are you?
Depending on your age, you might’ve grown up hearing about the original Star Wars trilogy. Folks who were around when A New Hope premiered in theatres continue to speak about it as an epochal event that changed the face of cinema.
But perhaps your introduction to Star Wars was via the prequel trilogy. You know, the story of Anakin and Padme, Jango and Boba, Dooku and Palpatine. The prequels cop a lot of stick, but they do contain a lot of fascinating details to get lost in.
Star Wars fans have been utterly spoiled for choice in recent years. With Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm came a new trilogy of films, informally known as the sequel trilogy. This brought us a host of new personalities including the lead characters Rey and Finn, as well as Kylo, Poe and Snoke.
Dyed in the wool Star Wars fans don’t stop at the nine official films, however. Loads of books and TV spin-offs, video games, comics and action figures exist to extend and nourish one’s obsession. Plus, Disney has produced a couple of anthology films in recent years – the action-intensive Rogue One and the biographical chapter Solo.
The company also announced that three live action series would be distributed via the Disney+ streaming service. The first of these, The Mandalorian, premiered last year.
The point is, there’s a heck of a lot of Star Wars content to devour and a lot of compelling characters to identify with. The original trilogy’s core cast of Luke, Leia and Han still hold the hearts of many. But the new generation of Star Wars fans have been just as captivated by Kylo Ren’s curious contradictions and Rey’s mysterious background.
