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!

Star Wars was originally based on the old Flash Gordon serials of the 1930s, where weekly installments mov...

Star Wars
With yesterday's unofficial-official Star Wars Day behind us it only seems fitting that such an iconic film series should have its own sequel. After all, the Saga is legendary, having transformed how people watch movies by both pushing forward the technolgies used in filmmaking and in birthing the modern blockbuster.

Two sequels, three prequels, a TV series and an instantly recognizable brand name visible at nearly every retailer in our galaxy, the franchise is still running strong. When's the last time you walked down a Walmart toy aisle without seeing numerous empty pegs where characters...

Q&A: Ashley and David Eckstein Celebrate Fandom With 'Her Universe'

One of the joys of fandom is being able to share your passions. And thanks to Ashley and David Eckstein, that just got a lot easier (and cooler) for women.

Representing one's fandoms can be a difficult task for the female gender. I say that from experience; I'm all about showing off my allegiances. One of those happens to be to the San Diego Padres, and I went on a rant when there wasn't a T-shirt for my favorite second baseman, a certain David Eckstein. You can imagine my delight to hear that someone that I am a huge fan of was making it easier for me to represent the things I love.
