10 Best and Worst Star Wars Character Live-Action Debuts

Do you have favorite Star Wars characters that have appeared in live-action? Recently a fan asked, “Which Star Wars characters had the best live-action debut?” Here are the top-voted responses. 

Many users had no idea that Chopper made a brief live-action debut in Rogue One. One confirmed, “Toward the end. He's on screen for about three seconds and only in the background. It's a nice easter egg but a waste of the Rebellion's number two war criminal.”

Best – Chopper (C1-10P)

“Watching Cad Bane walk in from the desert, silhouetted against the sky, was friggin awesome,” admitted one user.

Best – Cad Bane

Alternatively, one user expressed, “The worst debut was honestly Cad Bane for me. Seeing him again after Clone Wars was awesome, but he did not fit the script. They just used the character as a cash-in and killed him off immediately afterward. He probably isn't dead, but that was what we are meant to think.”

Worst – Cad Bane

“Bo-Katan, took me off guard as I wasn't expecting it,” one user admitted. “Agreed,” said another, “Bo Katan was my favorite as well. Not only a remarkable character, but they got Katie Sackhoff to do both the voice and the live-action versions.”

Best – Bo-Katan

“I was looking for an answer with Saw Gerrera. Forest Whitaker has killed it every time he's in a Star Wars show. His passion comes through as the gritty – do whatever it takes rebel,” one person said.

Best – Saw Gerrera

Another said, “Grand Inquisitor looks like Humpty Dumpty doing a Star Wars cosplay. Not even half as menacing as the OG Grand Inquisitor. It's missing a lot of Pauan details as well.”

Worst – Grand Inquisitor

“The best had to be Ashoka in the Mandalorian,” one user shared, “The intro in the foggy forest just seeing the lightsaber ignite, strike, and disappear.”

Best – Ahsoka
