    Phantom Menace, Jar Jar Binks.

    Because the only joy left in the movies is the misery of the fans. That’s
    how much damage the fans has done to them.

    Favorite character in the prequels: Darth Maul.

    Favorite character in the original trilogy: Leia Organa.

    Favorite character in The Force Awakens: BB-8 or Finn or Rey, it’s probably
    a three-way tie.

    Favorite character in Rogue One: It’s between Cassian Andor and Orson
    Krennic. I also like Jyn Erso and Galen Erso and the rest of the motley
    band of rebels quite a bit. And K-2SO, of course.

    Favorite Star Wars movie: The Empire Strikes Back. But A New Hope, Rogue
    One, and The Force Awakens aren’t far behind.

    Warwick Davis also played the title roll in Willow.

    Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Khan.

    I actually choked up and later really liked Chewie just going past them, as
    though he has his own way of internalising things. Having known him for so
    long, he might not have actually been closer to Han than Leia was, but
    Chewie maybe felt he was, and Rey didn’t know him all that well, so He
    might have taken slight and just dug his heels in with an “I have things to
    do.'” attitude.
    Now, if they don’t use that in the next one and have him break down or
    struggle to come to terms with it, that will be a major mistake to me.

  6. Jindorek says:

    Empire strikes back, and as always : the Mandalorian Bounty Hunter – Boba
    Fett.

  7. Laszlok says:

    My favorite movie is either ESB or RotJ. My favorite character is Ben
    Skywalker, which is why I don’t tell people I’m a Star Wars fan anymore.

    Also, fun fact: there’s a Star Wars horror novel entitled “Red Harvest”, a
    clear reference to the code name for RotJ.

  8. Qermaq says:

    You got drunk with one of the Darth Vaders too :D

  9. StupidButCunning says:

    Hmm, Idk about which movie but Emperor Palpatine has to be my favorite
    character.

  10. barduk4 says:

    Empire, Lando.

  13. BBnanner says:

    N*Sync was NOT cut from Attack of the Clones. If you watch carefully the
    Jedi Calvary scene @ the Colosseum, you can see a couple of them

  14. Wizard says:

    I will never understand why someone as intelligent as John can call TFA
    ‘near perfect’

  15. brendan95delany says:

    Shouldn’t it be “Han shot ONLY”?

  16. 00juls00 says:

    Han Solo (almost a tie with Leia though) and Empire Strikes Back (almost
    tied with The Force Awakens).
