Do you remember General Veers or the great Labria of the Mos Easly tavern? We present this gallery of “B” characters from Star Wars.
Star Wars celebrates another special day this Saturday, May 4th. And to remember all the fans of the saga, we wanted to gather in this post all those forgotten characters from the original trilogy from 1977 to 1983, that is, they made appearances in “A New Hope”, “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi”.
But the characteristic of these characters is that they are secondary or very secondary in the great majority and that they were still alive or presumably after “The Return of the Jedi” and that they never appeared in the films of the saga.
Let’s see this awesome bestiary of forgotten great Star Wars.
