We saw a lot of characters and creatures in "The Last Jedi" — let's rank them!




The Last Jedi" has dazzled audiences around the world, and introduced us to more characters and creatures in a single movie than ever before in the "Star Wars" saga.

Director Rian Johnson doesn't just push the storyline of Rey, Finn, Poe, and Kylo Ren forward in unique ways — with help from legends from the original trilogy like Luke Skywalker and General Leia — but also gives us a bunch of newbies to love (or hate).

Here we look back on 36 characters from "The Last Jedi" and rank from best to worst!

Warning: Spoilers below if you haven't seen "The Last Jedi."

Without question the character who is the most fascinating to watch and keeps the movie together, despite what you may think of it, is Kylo Ren. Adam Driver's performance as the conflicted son of Han Solo was great in "The Force Awakens" but is even better in "The Last Jedi." The connection with Rey, the double-cross of Snoke — this is why the villains are always the most interesting. When an actor can capture the conflict and complexities of evil it makes for one heck of an experience to watch.

Rian Johnson showing Luke as a man who has given up being a Jedi, and is conflicted with his place in the universe, is an extremely gutsy path for this beloved character. And it's one that makes watching Skywalker at this point in his life more interesting and makes the conclusion of the movie more dramatic. Hamill, whatever personal feelings he has about the character's end, delivers a powerful performance.

Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:28am On Dec 28, 2017
It may not have been the reveal many fans were hoping for, but we got one about Rey's parents (we think, at least). And her growing connection with Kylo Ren was a highlight of the movie. Ridley mostly holds her own opposite Mark Hamill.

Carrie Fisher gives a strong performance in her final role that is filled with surprises (floating through space using the Force, huh?) and touching moments (Luke and Leia meeting). Fisher definitely goes out on a high note.

It's one of the few roles we didn't really know that much about before seeing the movie. At first it looks as if Holdo is a seen-it-before mole for the bad guys, but it's a fun twist when her true intentions are revealed. And, of course, there's her final scene that may go down among the most memorable of any "Star Wars" movie.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:33am On Dec 28, 2017
We finally see Snoke in the flesh, and he doesn't disappoint. The delivery of every word by Serkis is just scenery-chewing greatness, and the motion-capture of Snoke is remarkable.

If there's any one character who had a rebirth from the J.J. Abrams movie to the Rian Johnson one, it's Hux. Under the pen of Johnson, Hux becomes a comic punching bag, not just a general with fake power. Gleeson really shows he's got talent doing straight-faced comedy.

7. General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:38am On Dec 28, 2017
Benicio del Toro added into the "Star Wars" saga is perfection. You never know what DJ's motives are or whom he's loyal to. We can only hope there's more of him in the next movie.

8.Dj (Benicio del Toro)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:40am On Dec 28, 2017
As with all the characters in "The Last Jedi," Finn's storyline takes an interesting pivot. We can debate all day whether it was the right choice, but what's still there is Boyega's solid performance.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:41am On Dec 28, 2017
Rose teams with Finn on a journey to help the Resistance, and in doing so there's now a new love brewing in the galaxy. Or at least a love triangle between Rose, Finn, and Rey. Or maybe I'm looking way too deep into this — it seems with this new trilogy anything's possible. But Tran holds her own as the new major character added to "Star Wars."

10.

Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:43am On Dec 28, 2017
Poe has a much different role in "The Last Jedi." He's a hothead who has to learn that being a leader doesn't mean doing heroic things that could get you and others killed. To understand that, he's more in the background of this movie. But he's front and center for its opening battle.

11.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:44am On Dec 28, 2017
They certainly do a lot more than what the Emperor's guards did in "Return of the Jedi." Snoke's guards look badass, and they have some great weapons. The duel they put on with Kylo Ren and Rey is pretty memorable.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:46am On Dec 28, 2017
Like C-3PO, R2-D2 has the perfect amount of screen time, and it's topped by an interaction with Luke. The two old friends join one last time, and R2 shows Luke the old footage of Leia's message to Obi-Wan from "A New Hope." It's a moment when you need a couple of tissues.

13.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:47am On Dec 28, 2017
It's still a disappointment that Phasma hasn't gotten a lot of screen time in these movies. If this is really her last time in the saga, then it's a major bummer because she has less screen time in this one than in "The Force Awakens." Just seems like a great character to do so little with.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:49am On Dec 28, 2017
You had a 50-50 shot when Luke decided to burn down the sacred Jedi books — either Yoda or Obi-Wan Kenobi was going to show up. You got Yoda. And we can't complain. He offers his usual words of wisdom and at the same time brings that nostalgia for the original trilogy.

15.Yoda (Voiced by Frank Oz)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:50am On Dec 28, 2017
There's nothing bad you can say about the Porgs. They are definitely not the new Ewoks. They bring some great laughs while also being very cute. A perfect addition to the saga.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:51am On Dec 28, 2017
BB-8 isn't as much of a focus as the previous movie. He has his moments to shine in the opening battle, but he's in the background for the most part after that.

17. BB-8 (Brian Herring and Dave Chapman)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:55am On Dec 28, 2017
Same can be said with Chewie. He's got his reunion with Luke, some sweet Millennium Falcon riding, and he bonds with a Porg after hunting one to eat.

18.Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:56am On Dec 28, 2017
C-3PO pretty much gets the right amount of screen time that's needed for this movie. He throws in a little exposition now and again and gets a funny reunion with Luke. Can't really ask for anything more.

19.C-3PO (Anthony Daniels)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 12:59am On Dec 28, 2017
Paige Tico (Veronica Ngo) (Lucasfilm)
She's responsible for the first dramatic part of the movie when she's the only person left in the bombing run who can release the payload to take out the First Order's massive ship. Rian Johnson sets up the suspense perfectly, and the acting of Ngo does the rest.

They are the caretakers of the island Skywalker is on, but they are also one of the comic-relief pieces of the movie. There are a lot of unusual things in this movie, but these creatures yelling at Rey for blowing a hole in one of the huts on the island is definitely one of the most out-there moments.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:05am On Dec 28, 2017
Connix gets thrown a bit more into the plot for this movie. She plays a loyal Resistance member to Leia (Lourd is Carrie Fisher's daughter). Great to see Lourd get more screen time.

22.

Lieutenant Connix (Billie Lourd)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:06am On Dec 28, 2017
These fox-like creatures with crystal fur give a big assist to the Resistance after they are trapped in an old base. Just another remarkable piece of work by the wizards at Lucasfilm.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:07am On Dec 28, 2017
He's the mysterious person Finn and Rose Tico are looking for on Canto Bight, and Justin Theroux gives the character a suave personality and dashing looks. I hope he comes back again next movie.

24.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:09am On Dec 28, 2017
These majestic creatures were one of the highlights of the Canto Bight section of the movie. Are they on the level of Porg cuteness? No. But their backstory and athletic abilities make them fun to watch.

It was a somber goodbye for ol' Ackbar. A legend for taking out Star Destroyer 2.0 in "Return of the Jedi" and sniffing out a trap in the battle, he was one of the many casualties in the Resistance trying to escape the First Order in this movie.

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:12am On Dec 28, 2017
The movie kicks off with some entertaining moments between General Hux, Poe, and this guy. Captain Canady definitely doesn't seem to like having to take orders from a youngster like Hux, but when his ship, Fulminatrix, is destroyed by the bombing run from the Resistance, Canady shows no fear and goes down with his ship.

Captain Canady (Mark Lewis Jones)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:13am On Dec 28, 2017
Found lying on the cliffs of the island where Luke Skywalker has lived during his self-imposed exile, these marine creatures are known best for producing the blue milk that became famous when Luke and his Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru drank it in "A New Hope." Is this why Luke chose this island, so he can drink the milk from its source anytime he wants? Whether it was a happy accident or not, we see in the movie that Luke is very happy Thala-sirens are there.

28. Thala-sirens

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:15am On Dec 28, 2017
She is Blue Leader during the surprise bomb run on the First Order in the beginning of "The Last Jedi," and is one of the few survivors. It seemed that perhaps we were being introduced to one of those pilots we might see again and again on attack runs, like Wedge Antilles. But she doesn't survive Kylo Ren's counter-attack.

29.

A-Wing Pilot Tallie (Hermione Corfield)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:17am On Dec 28, 2017
Is he going to be the story we follow in Rian Johnson's upcoming new "Star Wars" trilogy? Or is he just a cute kid with Jedi powers who isn't named Skywalker? Guess only time will tell, but his appearance in "The Last Jedi" is certainly memorable.

30.

Temiri Blagg (Temirlan Blaev)

Re: All 36 notable characters in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' Let's Rank Them by Dayoto: 1:18am On Dec 28, 2017
This veteran of the battles against the Galactic Empire is now battling the First Order. He gets less screen time this movie than what we saw in "The Force Awakens," but it's good to see he's still kicking around.
