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).
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.
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.
Ren is certainly not as intimidating as previous villains of Star Wars in this film, but I'll say this: he certainly was improved upon in The Last Jedi.
Also is just me or does he look a lot more like a younger, sci-fi equivalent of Severus Snape?
I was constantly afraid that he'll become a hysterical ass. But he was very reasonable, charismatic and emotional character. He wasn't bad for the sake of being bad (like Hitler-esque Hux or medichlorian-absolution Snoke). He is motivated, yet confused between the sides and he is very intimidating and tactical.
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.
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
Han Solo has personally always annoyed me a bit, but he's kinda cool
One of the saddest scenes in movie history
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.
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.
Finn is higher...HOW?! She has the force Finn just... did nothing. She actullay met Luke and definitely best NEW character! I still like Leia better but... COME ON!
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.
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.
He's the only good character in the movie along with Maz Kanata.
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!
Chewy was a savage in this movie
I expected him to be MORE savage after what happened >:(
The new pilot
Leia is my favorite character in Star wars
Han / Leia make a good match
Better than R2-D2 if possible
my namesake is exactly like me. fiery, cheeky and soo cute
Amazing character if you read the Phasma book. Phasma’s iconic never before seen armour made me really interested in phasma. I like the idea of Phasma being a female villain as you don’t really see that in Star Wars, I was disappointed to see Phasma’s screen time in the Force Awakens, but I’m glad that at least added her to the movie.
She/he is really good and cool
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.
Funniest character in the movie!
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
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.
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
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.
