Star Wars fans realise only 2 characters were in all 9 Skywalker movies

Star Wars fans realise only 2 characters were in all 9 Skywalker movies

An often overlooked fact

If you’re yet to tune into The Acolyte, the latest Star Wars series to land on Disney Plus, I’d highly recommend that you do something about changing that.

This week will bring us the fifth episode of The Acolyte’s eight episode run, and with last week’s instalment teasing our first major encounter with the series’ big bad, I sense that exciting things are to come.

The Acolyte takes us to the High Republic era, something Star Wars hasn’t explored in a live action setting before.

It’s refreshing to visit an era we know so little about, leaving the main Skywalker saga behind.

That being said, it’s abundantly clear that there’s still plenty for us to learn about that more familiar run of films, from cancelled plot twists to the unmasking of General Grievous.

Take a look at our interview with The Acolyte’s Dafne Keen, Charlie Barnett, and Rebecca Henderson below.

It seems kind of obvious now that it’s been pointed out but many Star Wars fans are only just realising that only two characters feature in all nine Skywalker films.

I’ll give you a second to see if you can guess who.

Two points to you if you said C-3PO and R2-D2.

“The only two characters that appear in all nine films of the Skywalker Saga. Through thick and thin, they remained best friends through it all. Thank you, C-3PO and R2-D2,” pointed out one Reddit user.

“Star Wars is all about the unfailing friendship of two droids, one from Naboo, the other from Tatooine. Their bond is beautiful,” offered user gcolquhoun.

“R2 lasting all nine movies is amazing considering he cursed up a storm in every one,” remarked loudkingcrow.

Despite this fact, a dissatisfied crankfive added, “I’m no sequel trilogy hater, but R2 really got robbed in these movies. He deserved way more screen time.”

With a new Rey film on the horizon, could we see the characters somehow make another appearance? I’m certainly hoping so.
