THETHING’S VIDEO OF THE DAY

8/8 Ben Solo

Perhaps the most popular character to come out of recent Disney Star Wars trilogy, Kylo Ren/Ben Solo is one of the most beloved characters in all Star Wars – Still, Disney left many fans upset about its fate at the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and feel that his return would right many of the faults of the trilogy. Kylo Ren’s redemption involves returning to the light as Ben Solo was a highlight of the series, but Ben only got a few minutes on screen in a way that felt like a tease to the audience.

Fans would love to see Adam Driver return to the role and explore the light side, but there’s also the potential to follow his childhood with his parents Han and Leia. Regardless of how Disney would choose to approach Ben Solo in a series, many fans are calling for him to at least get a chance.

7/8 Raven

With rumors of an appearance in the upcoming Star Wars: The Acolyte series and a few mentions in the film series, Revan is one of the most popular characters from Star Wars which has never been featured in live action or an animated show. He was one of the most feared Sith Lords after leaving the Jedi Order and was the namesake of The Revan Legion in Star Wars Legends.

After seeing appearances by some other notable dark side villains such as The Grand Inquisitor in Obi-Wan Kenobimany viewers are curious to see which villain will grace their screens next – and Revan is at the top of many of their lists.

6/8 Cal Kestis

It’s not often that a video game character is so beloved that fans want to see their live action debut, but fans of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order are desperate to see Cal Kestis appear in their own show or movie.

Cal is one of the most likable Star Wars protagonists, such as a surviving Jedi from the purge that wiped out most of the Jedi Order. He also has one of the most lovable droids by his side in the form of BD-1 – who many fans thought they saw as a cameo in an episode of The Book of Boba Fett. Having been modeled after and voiced by actor Cameron Monaghan, a Disney+ show would already have the perfect actor lined up for the job.

5/8 Qui-Gon Jinn

While the prequel series divided many fans, there has been a new appreciation for the films lately, and one of the most memorable characters came in the form of Obi Wan’s Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn. Fans latched onto Liam Neeson’s portrayal of the wise Master and were excited to see his small cameo at the end of the Obi-Wan Kenobi franchise, but they’d like to see more.

A Disney+ show could explore his earlier Jedi days and his rise from Padawan to Master, giving even more insight into his character and how he formed such a close bond with Obi-Wan and why he was so protective of young Anakin .

4/8 Darth Maul

Star Wars have really knocked it out of the park with their dark side characters, but one of their biggest characters first appeared in the prequel trilogy in the form of Darth Maul. After exciting fans with his appearance and unusual lightsaber, his quickly extinguished role in the prequels visibly upset fans, something that was largely rectified in both of Star Wars’ biggest animated shows, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebelsfans just can’t help but want to see more of Maul’s tragic story unfold.

After being teased with a cameo at the end of The Solo: A Star Wars Story with original performer Ray Park and reports that he was originally supposed to be the main villain of the sequel trilogy, fans are still wondering what could have been and are asking Disney to see the possibilities at hand.

3/8 Asajj Ventress

With one of the most tragic and intriguing backstories in all of Star Wars, Asajj Ventress piqued everyone’s interest in the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars and appeared in a series Star Wars novels. This Dathomirian’s life took her from being a slave, Jedi Padawan, Sith assassin and Nightsister, to a bounty hunter with conflicting worldviews.

At times a villain and at other times an anti-hero, she has interacted with some of the most iconic characters such as Count Dooku, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano, but she deserves to be discussed on her own and not always in relation to another greatness character . Few female characters from the dark side have ever gotten much screen time, and we think it’s about time they did.

2/8 Mace Windu

Another of the most popular Jedi in the prequel series, Mace Windu, is another character that would benefit from a Disney+ show. Like Qui-Gon, exploring the childhood and early days of the Jedi Order would give great context to how the Jedi High Council came to be.

A Mace Windu series is rumored to be in the works, but right now there isn’t much to back up those claims. However, his animated counterpart recently appeared in the first season of Tales of the Jedi anthology miniseries alongside Count Dooku.

1/8 General Grievous

Although often joked about, General Grievous is one of the more intriguing characters in Star Wars canon with a cult-like following, after appearing in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith.

Exploring his haunting backstory that has often been depicted as a Kaleesh whose planet had been targeted and enslaved, and the cold-hearted warrior born from such treatment, may be one of the darkest stories depicted in all Star Wars media. Fans would love to see his transformation from this ruthless warrior to the Jedi-hunting cyborg he became.
