At last, we have come to the end of the Prequel Era.
As Disney commences with re-defining the Star Wars brand, or “brand-scrubbing” as this EW column puts it, it seems Lucasfilm is trying to wipe Anakin Skywalker and the Clonetroopers from our consciousness (have at it). Last week they announced that we’d already seen the end of The Clone Wars animated series, and that the Robot Chicken-created Star Wars: Detours has been “postponed indefinitely” (see: Robopocalypse, jOBS).
It seems the live-action television project Star Wars: Underworld as well as the Star Wars 1313 videogame will follow the same path, making comic readers feel very fortunate that Dark Horse snuck Brian Wood’s Star Wars title in under the blaster.
The new Lucasfilm seems hell-bent on semi-reinventing the brand, and relying heavily on Original Trilogy-based content to do so. For any Star Wars fan over the age of 15, that’s a sexy proposition. Speaking of sexy (segue!), here are the ten sexiest characters in the Star Wars (non-Expanded) Universe:
10. Jango Fett
This guy was such a perfect male specimen that he was chosen to be the subject of countless clones.
Rugged, daring and dangerous, Jango Fett has that rich, dark complexion that even Tattooinians can’t achieve- and that’s with two suns!
Inspiring throngs of scantily clad cosplayers for 30 years, Oola was ROTJ’s green Twi’lek who made you think of strained peas and sideboob. Jabba had an obvious crush on this palace dancer, so when she resisted his advances, he fed her to the Rancor. Dude does not take rejection well.
8. Qui-Gon Jinn
Thirteen years ago, I probably would have overlooked Qui-Gon’s sexiness. Since then, Liam Neeson has gone on to play badass after badass, and as we all know, badassery is sexy.
Another sexy quality: Qui-Gon is as wise as they come. Except for that whole “I’m positive we should train Anakin Skywalker to be a Jedi” thing. And not-sensing the Sith threat until it was too late. And taking a lightsaber handle to the face, thus opening up his midsection for impalement. Besides that he was smart as shit.
7. Aayla Secura
If you’re into head-tails and cleavage, you’ll love Twi’leks! Aayla Secura is not the first (or last) female Twi’lek on this list, and certainly will not be the last Jedi.
The blue midriff-bearing Jedi Knight was seen being ambushed as part of Order 66, but those blue boobs will live on in our memories forever.
