For a film that is over 40 years old and venerated across cinema as well as the GFFA there are very few lesser known characters in The Empire Strikes Back, but there are certainly characters who got less screen time and attention than our leading heroes and villains and the star of this weeks Star Wars Show Book Club Kelly Knox takes a look at 6 of those characters.
There are heroes who loom so large in Star Wars that you don’t even have to say their last names to know who they are. Luke. Leia. Han. Lando. But what about the characters with faces you know, but names you don’t?
In honor of an incredible 40 years, let’s learn more about six characters from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back that you might not have had the chance to meet until now. Whether they’re an indispensable assistant that helps our heroes, or someone who runs across the screen for just a split second (literally), these Star Wars characters each deserve their own turn in the spotlight.
