Let’s Talk About Alexsandr Kallus, One of the Most Underrated ‘Star Wars’ Characters Ever

With all the acclaim given to Star Wars: The  Clone Wars in recent years, it can be easy to overlook Dave Filoni’s other great animated Star Wars show, Star Wars Rebels . That makes some sense. For one, Rebels lacks the immediate proximity to a Star Wars property enjoyed by Clone Wars . While some familiar faces do appear, the show’s central cast is mostly populated with new characters. Many of the Rebels characters who are familiar originated in the earlier show, impl...

DJ From ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is the Least Star Wars-y Character to Ever Appear in a ‘Star Wars’ Film

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide , where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Great news! This article does not intend to re-litigate Star Wars:  The Last Jedi . No one needs that in their lives at the moment, and my views on the film are too down-the-middle to please anyone anyway. Instead, we’re here to take a closer look at one of its stand-out characters, DJ – a gloriously strange character played by the gloriously strange Benicio del T...

An Ode to Kit Fisto: Bad in the ‘Star Wars’ Films, but Pretty Good Everywhere Else

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide , where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) The Star Wars prequels truly offer an impressive avalanche of ideas and top-notch design work – they just don’t have the time to do a satisfactory dive into hardly any of it. Instead we’re teased with the existence of Kamino or Aura Sing or that cool glowing orb they hoist at the end of The Phantom Menace . It’s up to comics, video games, books and other St...

Let’s Say a Proper Goodbye to Bib Fortuna, Lackey to Jabba the Hutt and Unlikely Offscreen Crime Lord

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide , where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Things move fast these days, and the season finale of The Mandalorian already feels like old news, despite only arriving a few weeks ago. Nevertheless, not everything that happened has been talked to death yet. Luke Skywalker? Yes. The Book of Boba Fett speculation? Yes. The death of Bib Fortuna? Not as much. Time to fix that! Which Character is This Aga...

Let’s Talk About Cad Bane, the Coolest Bounty Hunter in the ‘Star Wars’ Universe Not Named Boba Fett

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide , where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) A year from now, we will all be arguing passionately about The Book of Boba Fett , the surprise new Star Wars show set to arrive in December 2021. Given The Mandalorian ’s excited willingness to bring animated Star Wars characters into the live-action realm, and given the character’s bounty hunter profession and personal past with Boba Fett, it feels lik...

Let’s Dwell on L3-37, One of the Best (and Most Totally Doomed) ‘Star Wars’ Droids Ever

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide , where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) You can already tell the Disney Star Wars era will go down in history for some specific things. One will be a massive increase in content for sure. Another will be a slow takeover by Clone Wars and Rebels mythos. Somewhere on the list, however, needs to be an acknowledgment of the great improvement Star Wars droids have undergone in these new offerings...

Let’s Spend Some Time Thinking About Salacious B. Crumb, the ‘Star Wars’ Galaxy’s Biggest Li’l Stinker

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Imagine it’s 1983. A few years prior, you left the Star Wars galaxy with a couple doozies to consider. Not only did audiences learn Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father, but their favorite rogue and smuggler, Han Solo, ended that film frozen in carbonate and captured by the bounty hunter Boba Fett. For those of us who are a bit younger, it’s hard to imagine how tortu...

Babu Frik Asks a Vital Question: Is There Such a Thing as Too Cute For ‘Star Wars’?

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) It doesn’t take much for a Star Wars character to become iconic. It helps if they do something cool, but looking extra good will do the trick as well. Just consider Boba Fett. Yes, he is a tough bounty hunter, but we’re not currently watching the second season of a show about Bossk. It’s all about that incredible mask. The Star Wars machine is great at taking a ...

Savage Opress: The ‘Star Wars’ Character Cool Enough to Redeem Darth Maul

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Some Star Wars fans started watching The Clone Wars from the first theatrical film and stuck with it all the way through. To those folks, its jump from animated curiosity to the main engine driving the saga’s  narrative future probably wasn’t a huge surprise. They were smitten even in its Ziro the Hutt days; of course they would remain smitten when the show started...

Remembering Zam Wesell, the Worst Assassin in the ‘Star Wars’ Galaxy

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Some of us saw Star Wars Episode I:  The Phantom Menace and liked it right away. Some disliked it immediately. For some, it took many viewings to cement an opinion. And for others, there was a feeling that wherever happened in its follow-up, Star Wars Episode II:  Attack of the Clones ,  would help make sense of whatever George Lucas was up to with The Phantom M...

Pour One Out for Tivik, the Most Important ‘Star Wars’ Character No One Talks About

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Rogue One: A Star Wars Story begins with a child witnessing the murder of her mother and only gets more fun and exciting from there, culminating in a conclusion where (spoiler!) all our main characters die and Darth Vader slaughters a bunch of Red Shirts just for an added dose of carnage. Love it or hate it, this is the Star Wars movie that most thoroughly stresse...
