The Star Wars film franchise is populated by an entire galaxy’s worth of memorable characters, from Luke and Leia to Wedge and Watto. But everyone has their favorite guy, gal, droid or alien — the character you most wanted to dress up as for Halloween or share a glass of blue milk with. Yahoo Movies asked the cast and director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens to share their most beloved Star Wars characters and the answers might provide possible hints to the highly-anticipated movie.
Oscar Isaac reveals that, as a kid, he was all about Lando Calrissian, who had the kind of swagger that his Force Awakens flyboy, Poe Dameron, could conceivably aspire to. Daisy Ridley, meanwhile, says that Leia is her pilot, which will only increase speculation that her character, Rey, is related to the Rebel Leader. As for J.J. Abrams, he’s still charmed by the “everyman” appeal of Luke Skywalker, whom he describes as his way into the Star Wars universe. Given those feelings, directing Luke himself, Mark Hamill, must have been a mind-blowing experience. Blue milk’s on us if he spills all the details about their first meeting one day.
