With a very high 73%, Princess Leila won the majority of votes, followed by a 72% match between Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and Yoda. Surprisingly, the third place with a very high 71% for R2-D2 which distinguishes him from his droid”colleagues”. Only sixth place, in fact, for C3PO with 65% and an eleventh place with 39% for BB-8.
What this survey shows, is that fans of the saga undoubtedly prefer the old characters to the new ones, just think that Jar Jar Binks, for many the most hated character of the saga, is even higher up in the ranking compared to Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) and Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones in Rouge One).
