I think one of my favorite stories I’ve ever heard Mark Hamill tell is the one about how the first time he heard the score for A New Hope he got sort of jokingly offended because it seemed like every other character had a specific song for them and he didn’t and John Williams just looked at him and said “…The main theme is your song” and Mark was like “WHAT OMG” like he didn’t actually understand before that moment that he was the protagonist.
I: Favorite all time character from the original trilogy of Star Wars films? D: If I have to chose one, and I think he chose me, it’s Darth. It’s like he appears in my nightmares, he’s there always. R: And in your dreams! D: I went to the set one day when Gareth was doing a test and I started listening to [Darth Vader noises] and, literally, I became six years old and freezed. I was like [obscenities]! I don’t feel that with anyone or anything. R: Not even with me? D: Not even with you. I mean, and our thing is special, but that is here. I’m sorry. I accepted it, I feel much better. Darth Vader!
honest to god………. finn is probably my favorite all time star wars character, he’s so goddamn well written with such a range of emotion and motives and morals and beliefs and john boyega is such a brilliant actor GOD I just
HANDS DOWN. DARTH VADER IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER IN THE STAR WARS SERIES AND HERE’S WHY
Darth Vader is the most terrifying badass I have ever met as a character, he knows how to get shit done and when to get it done. In the original trilogy, he hunts down Luke Skywalker using any means necessary and tries to get him to turn to the Darkside.
In the animated series Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD, he still had that intimidating feeling after the Grand Inquisitor was killed. Just the moment when he arrives on Lothal and all you hear is the breathing and his iconic theme gets you hyped for season two.
The Force Awakens, all you see is an old relic of his helmet and it still gives you those vibes, man.
R O G U E MOTHERFUCINKG ONE
LET ME TELL YOU
The introduction to Darth Vader was so pleasing. Seeing him in the bacta tank protected by Imperial Guards when Krennic approaches him screams the fact that he’s still recovering from his injuries.
HIS CASTLE BASE ON MUSTAFAR BUILT ON THE VERY SPOT WHERE HE DUELED OBI-WAN KENOBI.
BOARDING THE TANTIVE IV AND KEEPING REBEL TROOPS TRAPPED IN A ROOM AND GOING ON A SLAUGHTER FEST
I’m really sad we only got K2SO for one movie because he could have easily become my favorite character in Star Wars. He’s such a snarky lil shit and I would love to have seen him and R2 gang up on C3PO.
I just wonder why like… no one has Luke as their favorite character? Why no one appreciate him? Why barely no one writes fanfics with him? :(
Luke is my fav SW character and whenever someone asks me who my fave is, I say Luke and they go “WHAAAT WHY? He is so boring!”
I love him. He has been my fav since I saw SW and he will continue be my fave. I hope people will turn to like him!
me: oh wow i can’t wait to read this fic about my favorite star wars character, finn
y’all: what if finn, a grown ass man who successfully threw off years of brainwashing in a literal day, was completely unsure of how to act around close friends and can’t even figure out the simplest things
Finn is my favorite character in the entire Star Wars universe.
Finn lived through a lifetime of indoctrination, he’d been stripped of all identity to the point where he was literally nothing more than a number. Its amazing that he was able to break free of all of the conformity and indoctrination, to actually think for himself and realize what was happening was wrong.
But he did more than that. How many soldiers throughout history had moral doubts about what they were ordered to do, but followed orders out of fear, because the alternative was too enormous to contemplate? How many ordinary people, when faced with the choice of speaking up about something wrong that was happening and staying silent, choose the latter for exactly the same reasons?
So not only did Finn have the compassion, but also the courage to do the right thing. Even though it would mean abandoning everything he’d ever known. Even though it might very well have meant certain death.
But there’s more than that.
Finn is terrified of the First Order. There are some who see this as a weakness, but not me. Because the minute Rey was captured, Finn was ready to charge right into the heart of the thing he’d been running from the entire movie.
Think about that. Think about how much courage it takes to face the thing you fear most without any hesitation or even a plan. Think about why he’s doing it. He’s doing it to save Rey, someone he couldn’t have known for more than a few days.
Finn, who grew up without any compassion or love, has such an enormous capacity for both that he would face the thing he fears most for someone he just met.
So lets be clear: Finn is not a token character, he isn’t a bumbling idiot and he certainly isn’t comic relief. While Finn has ordinary powers and abilities, he has such a stunning capacity for courage and compassion that he is in fact truly extraordinary.
y'know what one of my favorite things is? the clone wars. another thing? watching my favorite characters die on-screen with little to no effort from the one killing them. *clenches fists* just. my. favorite.
So I am obsessed with personifying the seven deadly sins as characters. Also I am watching The Seven Deadly Sins on Netflix and it’s all I can think about. So here is Adam Driver as the seven deadly sins
Philip Altman: This is Where I Leave You- Lust
While Philip Altman is one of my favorites he’s not very good at keeping his business in his pants. He has all these great qualities but he does not seem to be able to help himself around the ladies. Oh Philip, although I love your commitment to your family, I wish you were better at committing yourself to your girlfriends.
Rick Smolan: Tracks -Gluttony
Rick Smolan is very driven photographer who wants to help other live their dreams while capturing the beauty of their adventure at the same time. But unfortunately his passion leads him to doing whatever it takes to “get the shot”. He isn’t aware, or doesn’t seem to care, that he’s being disrespectful or rude to those around him. His main concern is doing what he wants, when he wants.
Kylo Ren: Star Wars VII The Force Awakens - Wrath
Our poor love has so much anger inside of him. We see him lose control on several occasions and does not seem to have much patience for mistakes. It’s more than clear that if he’s mad you do not want to be anywhere near him. If this character fully commits to the Dark Side we will see the true power his anger will bring him.
Jude: Hungry Hearts - Sloth
Now the aspect of sloth I am referring to is the failure to do something when you know you should. This poor man knows his wife loves their child but at the same time he knows something is not right. While he knows he needs to intervene for the sake of the child it takes him a long time to do it.
Jamie: While We’re Young - Greed
It is probably incredibly difficult for an aspiring documentary film maker to get noticed in the industry. So what would you do if you met a successful film maker? Jamie uses charm and deceit to get his way. Nothing is going to stand in this mans way of getting his way.
Jamie: While We’re Young- Envy
I think Jamie personifies both these sins because I believe greed and envy kind of go together. Jamie was so ready for the fame and wealth that he used Josh’s references and knowledge to get what he wanted. He wanted to be just like Josh and did what it took to make it so.
Alan: What If - Pride
Alan is a very cocky character. The whole movie his role seems to be giving Wallace advice. But what he didn’t really realize is that Wallace was really nothing like him so his advice was not very useful. There are a couple of times where Alan kind of crosses the line trying to be helpful but we never really hear an apology. He seems to think he knows all and doesn’t need much counseling himself.
I was going to do Adam Sackler but I do not watch Girls so I don’t think I would of classified him right.
The most powerful Jedi of his generation. Perhaps of any generation. The fastest. The strongest. An unbeatable pilot. An unstoppable warrior. On the ground, in the air or sea or space, there is no one even close. He has not just power, not just skill, but dash: that rare, invaluable combination of boldness and grace. He is the best there is at what he does. The best there has ever been. And he knows it. HoloNet features call him the Hero With No Fear. And why not? What should he be afraid of?
Fear lives inside him anyway, chewing away the firewalls around his heart.”
I really, truly hope that they let Luke Skywalker be Luke Skywalker in these next two films.
People speculate over whether he’ll act more like Obi-Wan or Yoda when really, he’s not much like either of them. (I would argue that it was the striking differences between Luke and Yoda/Obi-Wan in ESB and RotJ that allowed Luke to accomplish what he needed to accomplish.) There’s no reason to think that he would make a complete turn in his personality, even despite the similar situation he’s in. He’s older now, yeah, and he’s probably much, much sadder and wiser, too, but…he’s still Luke. He’s still the same man we saw in the original trilogy. He just has more years and experience weighing down on him now.
I want to see Luke as an old man. Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. I don’t want to see an Obi-Wan or Yoda impersonation with Mark Hamill’s face. If I walk into that theater and see that they just reduced Luke to a carbon copy of the previous Jedi Masters, I’ll honestly feel cheated.
@cosleia called me out to do this “draw your favorite character Lisa Frank style” challenge, and as someone who turned her photography assignments in to her professor in a Lisa Frank folder (much to his chagrin), I loved the idea immediately.
This was hands down the most fun I have had coloring something in a long time. 0 Stress, ALL NEON
Inktober 21! Darth Maul!! Since I own red ink, I had to do it! Maul is one of my absolute favorite, both as Ray Park portrayed him and in Clone Wars and Rebels. He’s a phenomenal character and I never stopped loving him. He was always my favorite. So it was only a matter of time that I drew him and I love the result.
