The 38 most notable deaths in the ‘Star Wars’ movies, ranked by how sad they made us

Luke Skywalker in “The Last Jedi”

“Star Wars” is literally about war in the sky, which means that a lot of lives have been lost along the way.

But somehow, General Hux is still alive.

Some of the characters lost throughout the “Star Wars” films have been in our lives for decades, like Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. And some had small but powerful roles in just one movie that made us shed a lot of tears despite their brevity, like Amilyn Holdo in “The Last Jedi.”

But with some characters, we couldn’t wait for them to die. So when they did, we were cheering (Jabba the Hutt, Palpatine).

We ranked 38 notable deaths from the movies, from the porg Chewie cooked to Obi Wan Kenobi. We chose the deaths of characters who had names, had more than a few lines, and/or had some kind of impact on a major plot point or a major character.

Here’s the Star Wars deaths ranked, from least tragic to most tragic:
