    I voted for Cassian because I liked the edge of his character and because he was one of the few characters that really showed growth in Rogue One. I also could have voted for Jyn and Orson Krennic too. The rest are all good but I felt like those three were the only ones that got the time and care they needed as characters imho.

    Seeing Mon Mothma and Bail again (ROTS actors, yay) was fantastic. Of the R1 crew / new chars, it'd definitely Chirrut. His optimisim really brightened what was galaxy's very dark hour.

    Chirrut and K-2S0

    Chirrut was just so likeable and optimistic and spiritual that it was hard not to latch onto him. And that scene at the end with "I am one with the Force, and the Force is with me" was probably my favorite moment in the movie.

    K-2S0, I like droids. The droid character is kind of the mascot of whatever Star Wars story they are tied to. The OT has 3PO and R2, the ST has BB-8, and R1 has this guy, who is not only funny and charming with his own quirks, but very handy in a tight situation too. This is a character that could have easily gotten annoying too, so good on everyone involved for scaling back and giving us the right level of humor with him.

    I had to vote for Jyn because she was going through so much and in the end it just looked like she wanted to make her dad proud and to hit the Empire hard in a way that her father could not. Yes I know that he built the whole in the Death Star that Luke eventually shot some torpedoes in to blow it up but what she did was damaging to the Empire in that moment and the look on her face when Cassian says to her "Your father would be proud" says it all to me.

    I went with Chirrut because he is the optimistic heart of the film but, for me, Baze is part of the package. Two of my favourite SW characters. One blind with his mind wide-open and his senses primed; the other cynical but highly protective (with the coolest firearm of the saga to boot).

    I love the way the film dealt with their deaths: Chirrut sacrificing himself for the greater good (as so many did) via the force and Baze, channelling his friend's spirit with his chant, following him, as he clearly always has done, on to the next plane.

    I voted for Krennic, but it may be more of a tie between him and Chirrut. They're both great in different ways. Krennic because he has the nerve talk back to the likes of Vader and Tarkin; and Chirrut because he's this uplifting spiritual character, who's also an awesome martial artist.

    It's a shame these characters only got one movie to shine.

    Chirrut for me, but I also loved Baze, Jyn, Raddus and K2. I liked Cassian a lot too. For all the criticism this movie gets on characters, it had a lot that I cared about.

    Chirrut gets the top spot because I adored his optimism. His personality was infectious to me. Also, I really appreciated his spirituality in the scenes he was in. It added depth to everything. Finally, on a more meta note, I have always wanted to see martial arts in SW, and they finally delivered and it was awesome. I just want to say, in my canon, Chirrut also used the force in this movie. LF can say what they want, but blind people can’t hear a crystal on string around a neck. I wish they gave this character more newEU content. I would read a novel about him, with Baze supporting of course.

    Agreed. I’m pretty baffled by the characterization critiques. Jyn and Cassian, in particular, have the most robust and realistic character arcs across all the films, IMO.

    I voted for Jyn, but quite honestly I have a few favorites based on their storyline. Cassian, for example, was a well though out character. His desire to change his path and rewrite his destiny by doing something he wholeheartedly believed in made his character quite special. Chirrut was an awesome character as well - reminded me of the teacher in all of the chop-sockey films I used to watch as a kid. He was the mystic who believed deeply in the Force, even though many around him believed him an old fool. In the end, we all know he is correct in his beliefs, but it is his belief in the living force and his connection to it that makes him such a great fighter, despite being blind and not really having the ability to wield the Force like a Jedi. And K2SO - who doesn't love a killing machine with a sarcastic sense of humor?

    I love Chirrut (he is in my top-10 SW characters) and rewatch RO only for him, Cassian and cinematography which is absolutely amazing.

    Edit: (How can I change my vote? I just accidentally clicked on another character :mad:)

    I seriously love all the characters in this movie. There is not one single character that makes me annoyed at their presence or wonder why he/she is there.

    In all seriousness, this poll was a tough one. I am fond of all of these characters.

    So hard to choose, but to my surprise, Chirrut.

    I went with Chirrut, but I liked all of the Rogue One crew.

    I was a bit disappointed with Bodhi, though. Riz is a great actor and they could have done so much more with him.

    I love them so much that I bought their figures. And I don't collect anything. Like, at all.

    My top 3 are:

    1) Chirrut I really appreciated this character. He had a very calm and soothing nature. I also appreciate Donnie Yen's earlier movies (ip man 1-3 to name a few but he has been in quite a few movies as well as Red Cliff).

    2)K-2SO I'm a huge fanboy of firefly and having one of the actors cross over into the star wars universe was great. Also he was quirky but brought great one liners to the movie for comic relief.

    3) Baze Unfortunately he didn't get a lot of lines. But the dynamic between him and Chirrut would be great to see for me personally in like a standalone movie. It would be interesting to see who the guardians of the whills where on screen. I know there is a book out but a visual interpretation to me would be easier to see fleshed out.

    In rewatches I'd say:

    Cassian, Chirrut and K-2SO. Not much has changed. :)
