Best Characters In Star Wars: The Force AwakensThis list compiles the best characters featured in J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated 2015 space opera film, 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' (Episode VII).
The Top Ten
One of the biggest surprises of this movie. I was afraid that he was going to be a typical badass villain with a menacing, lightsaber, look and voice without much background about him. Oh boy, was I wrong. Kylo Ren may be a badass but he's also a very emotional, intriguing, intimidating and compelling villain. A villain who feels conflicted, who has the desire to go back to the light side but doesn't have the courage to, kills his father Han Solo which added more to the emotional drama between Han and Leia, and also idolizing his grandfather Darth Vader (or shall I say Anakin Skywalker). That's how you make a great villain. He has the makings of being a true competitor to Darth Vader. - Johnny1248
When people call him a wimp, think about it for a second. What conflict this poor guy is suffering through, and everything in between. He's practically being torn apart, as he said in the movie himself. To me, he is no wimp, but a fighter, because he's been through a lot, guys, and even though he killed his own father, he has his reasons.
I know he's not as powerful but I like him more than Vader! I'm going to get a lot of hate for this
What He Did To His Father At The End Was Despicable
My guess is, she'll be some kind of a main focus in the new trilogy. And that is certainly good, together with Kylo Ren, she is probably the most interesting and intriguing new character. - UniqueUniverse
Rey is a revolutionary character as she is the 1st female lead in a movie that normally has only one female in the entire trilogy, but she's so much more. I love her, and I don't care 5hat other people on this site think rte hat she is a Mary Sue.
Quite an interesting character. it's pretty fair to say that Daisy Ridley has a very bright future ahead of her because she had some of the best acting I've ever seen in Star Wars. I know I may be overrate, but that's just me. - Johnny1248
Sexy and amazing. Loved watching her kick emo Ren's ass. That's my type of girl. Gosh she's hot.
Han Solo only appeared in the first of the three movies and his scenes we're still better than all of the other characters' scenes. His death gave us the shock and violence that we got use to seeing in Star Wars and it was an iconic moment. - RogerMcBaloney
Personally, I think that Harrison Ford didn't really car about the movie. He was always open about his indifference towards the franchise and now he obviously dislikes the idea of being back in this role. You could could it in his expression. His performance was a real disappointment to me. - UniqueUniverse
Still the best. But out of the new characters I would say Rey even though she's overpowered and kind of broke the Force in my opinion
I've always liked Han Solo, he has been great in every movie he has been in (except the Christmas special but you can't blame him for that) - Martinglez
Rey unfortunately in my opinion is a Mary sue, kylo ren unfortunately is a Vader wannabe, but Finn? He is 100% unique! Everything about him is so different from everyone else plus he is really funny! Well, Rey and him are both funny.
Out of everyone in The Force Awakens, I think Finn is my favorite character. We have always seen stormtroopers as goons who shot bad, Finn showed that not every stormtrooper wants to be one. John Boyega did a fantastic job playing this character and I can't wait to see him in Episode 8. - khscarymovie4
He's the only good character in the movie along with Maz Kanata. - darthvadern
Chewy was a savage in this movie - ryanrimmel
He shot kylo in the gut the went on a rampage which was my favorite moment aside from the lightsaber duel at the end.
Give the Wookie your vote since no one will give him a medal or a hug!
The new pilot
Is he gay
Better than R2-D2 if possible
Leia is my favorite character in Star wars
Han / Leia make a good match
Your pic of her is wrong, it's supposed to be the pic of her in the movie, not a CW pic.
She/he is really good and cool
As a person who already saw the movie and now tries to avoid spoiling anything to the others, I can only say that this pick is absolutely illogical (you'll see why) - UniqueUniverse
I like how Honest Trailers says this is the easiest paycheck Mark Hamill ever made, because it's true.
How is he 2?! He was only in the movie for 1 minute
She's so funny I love her she reminds me of one of those wise old ladies that is always willing to crack a joke in between
Funniest character in the movie! - darthvadern
She's an orange and weaker version of Yoda, mixed with E.T. in looks, and she brought Rey towards a nightmare tunnel, yet you guys should feel bad for her after her castle got destroyed by the First Order.
A character who resembles a cross between Voldemort from Harry Potter and Gollum from Middle Earth, yet his true identity is not known, he could be any character from the past movies, spin-offs and games, and he;s the "Supreme Leader" of the First Order.
So much mystery surrounds Snoke. - EmperorPalpatine
Didn't get mad enough
It became a meme.
I didn't really like her here, but mi production is that she will have a great role in the sequels - Martinglez
Possibly the most underused character. She could have been a badass with no face. But she appeared, was a cool kind of bitch, and then disappeared. What a shame. - UniqueUniverse
Lando was so good in this movie. I especially liked the part when he WASN'T EVEN IN IT. SERIOUSLY?! WHO PUT THIS HERE?!?!
Seriously storm troopers can't hit a thing
