The Star Wars franchise has been around for a long time. Moving past the original films, multiple stories have been told through countless mediums. Books, games and a couple of animated television series have all contributed in adding a number of new characters as well as expanding on many of those who appeared in the films. One thing the Expanded Universe has done well is adding depth to certain characters who would play smaller roles in films. Characters that never even got lines had their own stories and personalities molded in the EU. With so much content having been created, fans were introduced to a number of interesting characters newly added to the Star Wars mythos. Not to mention the already established favorites whose stories continued on.

One of the greatest things about Star Wars is the variety of characters to be found. Be it good guys or bad, or even in-between, there’s no shortage of interesting characters. With a fandom as large as this, favorites are to be expected, though opinion obviously varies from fan to fan. While not everyone might be able to agree on who’s better than who, one of the best parts about this fan base is the passion that drives it. That being said, here is a list of the 50 greatest characters in the Star Wars universe. As most opinions vary when it comes to things like this, feel free to voice your opinion in the comments section as to who some of your favorite Star Wars characters are.

Is there any surprise that Han Solo finds himself at the top of this list? If there’s one thing the original trilogy did exceptionally well, it was casting its lead characters. Its two male leads in particular. The former smuggler-turned-hero didn’t make the transition overnight, but instead developed over time. Brave, smart and incredibly cocky, it’s no mystery as to why Han is such a popular character in the Star Wars mythos. While most heroes were duty-bound Jedi, Han offered a fresh take on the role, doing things in style.
