The recent achievements of Andor and Ashoka have created new opportunities for Star Wars Media. The world is populated with a diverse range of characters, supported by decades of source material in the form of books, comics, programmes, movies, and video games.

Moreover, these characters offer insight into various facets of the Star Wars world that should be addressed. There are legendary characters that are long overdue for a series, while others are obscure and enigmatic, giving screenwriters greater creative freedom with their plots.

​​​​​​10. Captain Fordo

Fordo is a prime example of an obscure character with limited screen time who gained a cult following. Captain Fordo is one of the most memorable clones from the 2003 Star Wars: Clone Wars miniseries.

9. Mon Mothma

Mon leads the revolt and eventually becomes the galaxy's chancellor once Emperor Palpatine is toppled. Despite her significance to the Star Wars saga, she has not been discussed in popular Star Wars content until 2023's Andor.

8. Darth Bane

Darth Bane, the Sith Lord, established the "Rule of Two" dynamic inside the Sith Order 1000 years before The Phantom Menace. The Rule of Two, based on the highly successful novel series The Darth Bane series, states that there can only be one master and one student.

7. Wedge Antilles

Spaceships are the most iconic Star Wars artefacts, second only to lightsabers. There is yet to be a series dedicated to dogfights and huge space conflicts. A programme centred on the captain of the Rogue Squadron provides the ideal opportunity to follow the life of a pilot in the Star Wars world.

6. Guardians Of The Whills

Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe were a noteworthy team in Rogue One. Originally assigned with care after the Jedi Temples, they were embroiled in mishaps following the Jedi Order's dissolution.

5. Saw Gerrera

Saw Gerrera is a unique character since his journey has been recounted through the lenses of The Clone Wars, Rebels, The Bad Batch, Andor, Rogue One, and Jedi: Fallen Order. If Saw had his series, he would be able to connect with a variety of well-known events and individuals. A Saw Gerrera series will allow viewers to see the dark side of the uprising.

4. Mace Windu

Mace Windu was the Jedi order's master and most formidable fighter. Before Anakin Skywalker appeared, the Jedi thought he may be the Chosen One. It has been implied that Mace has led an exciting life, although little content has addressed his history. Mace's lineage of trainees extends to Ezra, the primary character in Star Wars: Rebels, therefore various Jedi figures from the animated series might be brought to life when Mace Windu appears.

3. Darth Maul

Darth Maul is a sad figure who has committed himself to gaining the power to exact revenge on Obi-Wan Kenobi and his old master, Darth Sideous. Darth Maul is actively immersed in the criminal underworld of Star Wars. He was hinted as a potential enemy at the end of Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. A Maul-centric series might focus on criminal stories and his ongoing attempts to get to the top of the galaxy, which he ultimately fails at.

2. Yoda

One of the most well-known figures is likewise cloaked in mystery. Yoda is nearly 800 years old, and viewers know nothing about him, his people, or his home planet. Because of his extended life, writers may be creative with their ideas without jeopardising the main narrative thread.

1. Darth Vader

The most recognisable figure in Star Wars, and maybe all of the film, has yet to be adapted for television. Vader returned to Star Wars in Ahsoka and Obi-Wan, when he took part in climactic battles.

In addition, a Darth Vader series can cover the 19 years between Episodes 3 and 4. The series can go into Vader's thoughts as a fallen Jedi. According to comics and books, Vader is pursuing Jedi and doing odd errands for the Emperor while simultaneously plotting to overthrow h
