Q&A 324: Who is your favorite Star Wars character?

In Q & A, a weekly feature of Fantastic Fangirls, we ask our staff to tackle a simple question — then open the floor to comments.

Who is your favorite Star Wars character?

Anika: Couple days ago my daughter took StarWars.com’s special quiz “Which Star Wars Character is Most Like Your Mom?” and sent me the result:


Which I suppose explains why I’ve considered Anakin my favorite character since I was seven.

Jessica: Gonna have to go with R2-D2, the snarky little robot. I think we all know who the real hero is here.


Mandy: Obi-Wan Kenobi: first, last, always.


Pocky: Luke Skywalker. Forever. The extent to which I crush on Mark Hamill cannot be overstated. His conspicuous absence from all the Force Awakens hype is driving me bananas.


Sam: Jaina Solo, who doesn’t exist anymore. Honestly, of the entire Extended Universe, she is what I miss the most, and I am [not so] secretly hoping that Rey has a lot in common with her, and we’re treated to several movies of an amazing Jedi pilot lady.


So what about you?  Who is your favorite Star Wars character?
