REMINDER THAT THE STAR WARS CHARACTER RANKINGS DEADLINE IS THIS MONDAY, JANUARY 27 AT 11:59 PM. INSTRUCTIONS AND ORIGINAL POST FROM JANUARY 13 BELOW.
Well, screenagers, it’s finally over. With the release of Rise of Skywalker, the epic story of the Skywalker clan has drawn to an official close. Three trilogies and two stand alone films later, Lucasfilm (with the help of Disney) has delivered the definitive science fiction franchise.
In addition to the Skywalkers, these movies have been chock full of cool and interesting characters. To mark the conclusion of this era of the Star Wars franchise, we here at Screenage Wasteland want to invite you, our readers, to help us rank the most popular Star Wars characters.
We’d like you to rank your top fifteen characters from the Star Wars film franchise. For the purpose of this exercise, we’re going to confine ourselves to the eleven live-action theatrical releases (sorry, Baby Yoda). That’s Episodes I to IX, Rogue One, and Solo.
So here’s the deal,
- send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Include your fifteen favorite Star Wars characters.
- Feel free to include a few words about each character if you like.
We’ll collect entries through January 27. After that, we’ll tally the votes. Each character will be awarded points based on where they appear on your ranking. In other words, characters ranked first will receive the most points. Characters ranked 15th will get the fewest.
Once we’ve scored everything, we’ll present to you the results of the official Screenage Wasteland Star Wars popularity contest. It will be the final word on the best and most popular characters in the universe. There will be no crying or arguing. This is a completely scientific exercise that will render all contradictory opinions moot. Or not. That’s what the comments section is for!
So compile that list and get it in to us. And may the force be with you.
