These Are The 20 Best 'Star Wars' Characters Ever

12/25/2015 4:21pm EST
The 20 Greatest Characters In The 'Star Wars' Galaxy
The Star Wars universe has given us dozens of characters throughout its seven films and two animated series, and we've narrowed that list down to the 20 we think are the best in the series.

Naturally, we've gone with canon here, as some may argue that characters from the post-"Return of the Jedi" expanded universe novels and comics should be included, however Disney wiped all of that off the Star Wars map to start fresh with "The Force Awakens."

Those stories are now just known as legends.

Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments below!

Best Celebrity Voice Acting Roles

Voice acting is a much more lucrative business than one might imagine, with the actors in question providing their voice for animated movies, video games, television shows, voice overs, and anything else that requires a voice but no face. Some actors do only that kind of work, giving themselves a certain amount of fame in that industry, such as "The Simpsons" cast.

Everything changed when voice acting became a business not only for unknowns, but also an attractive fad for celebrities who wanted to broaden their horizons ... or make a movie "for the kids." Now it seems that no animated...
