On April 25, 2014, Lucasfilm announced that the countless Star Wars novels, comics, video games and other ancillary material in the Expanded Universe were no longer part of official Star Wars canon. Instead, they would be rebranded under the Star Wars Legends banner and moving forward, the Disney-owned Lucasfilm would only recognize the (then) six existing live-action films, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series and film and all future material as canon.
Naturally, this news was a bitter pill to swallow for countless Star Wars fans, but since then, we’ve been introduced to countless new and exciting characters who’ve managed to capture our hearts and our interest in spite of this.
With that in mind, we here at Epicstream have compiled a list of what we feel are the 10 best Star Wars characters of the post-Disney era. Check out our picks and let us know what you think in the comments section.
The character of Enfys Nest made her debut in Solo: A Star Wars Story as the leader of the Cloud-Riders gang. However, while her enigmatic look initially drew comparisons to such visually striking characters as Boba Fett and Darth Maul, Nest was no bounty hunter or Sith Lord. As it turns out, she was an early figurehead in what would eventually become the Rebel Alliance – a twist that few could have predicted prior to Solo’s release. Unfortunately, due to the lukewarm reception Solo received at the box office, it remains to be seen whether Enfys Nest will still play a role in the Star Wars universe moving forward.
