Another week has passed and that means a new poll has arrived. Last week explored who your favorite Marvel heroine would be and today my question is who is your favorite classic Star Wars character? Here’s the list of characters to choose from.
Luke Skywalker is one of the coolest characters that have ever been brought to cinema and he helped spur forward generations of Star Wars fans with his innocent heroism and his immense potential for goodness. He was the modern age Arthur (The Sword in the Stone) in a film created in the mold of a fairy tale and his evolution throughout the original trilogy was just a blast to watch. He had his ups and downs but at the end of the day he was truly the Jedi that he was destined to be and helped save the galaxy not once, but twice. Awesome!
Han Solo was a rogue, a scoundrel, a criminal, but at the heart of the character he was a hero and I think that’s why he appealed to so many people.

Well, let’s find out shall we.
The Force Awakens
In The Force Awakens BB-8 was cute, cute, and did I mention he was cute? Unlike R2-D2 he was never rude and really seemed to be the equivalent of a puppy droid. His first interactions with Rey on Jakku are enough to make you ooh and ahh. When he gets feisty against Finn you can’t help but smile and laugh. And throughout the rest of the film he’s just this lovable droid that I wish was real because I would have a BB-8 asap. In fact, one day I’m definitely getting one of those remote control BB-8’s because he’s just that darn cute. So that leads me to his involvement in his next film.
