Although it's on my blog, this list is not my opinion (I don't have one). This is my mom's top five best characters. I hope you enjoy!
"I like BB-8 because he is a resourceful and loyal sidekick who is cute without being a goofy distraction."- My Mom
"Rey makes a good hero because she is very human and relatable. She is tenacious, but shows weakness. She's tough, but sentimental. She doesn't always know what she's doing, but she keeps her cool. She is eager to learn and rises to every new challenge, yet she remains humble and deferent, even as her greater significance is revealed."- My Mom
3. Poe Dameron
"Poe is cool and funny, warm-hearted and hot-headed. He is an imperfect leader who acts a bit impulsively, but cares about his team and admits when he is wrong."- My Mom
"L3-37 is hilarious, emotional and confident, and way more human than many of the actual humans in Star Wars. I was truly distressed when she did not survive."- My Mom
1. Kylo Ren
"Adam Driver gives Kylo Ren a lot more dimension than we are accustomed to seeing in a Star Wars character. Kylo shows his flaws - the darkness and the light - and his inner turmoil comes through. He is capable of real human connection, but also of abject cruelty. For better or worse, I am just more interested when Kylo is in the scene."- My Mom
Did you like my mom's list? I do. I don't really agree with it, but I do think all of her top five are great characters. I wish I could decide on a favorite! Do you agree with her top five?
