Check out how the actors of the saga “Star Wars” are today.

Since the release of “Return of the Jedi“, it was a long 32 years that passed until the premiere of “The force awakens” (38 if you count the release of the first film), which over the years has enchanted the lives of children and adults.

But time comes for everyone, even jedis, princesses and bounty hunters, being more cruel to some than to others. Check below the change of the main actors of the six films until today.

Harrison Ford / Han Solo – 1980s and 2015

Certainly the most successful actor in the original trilogy, who after the success of “Star Wars” launched a solid career in cinema starring in films like “Indiana Jones”, “Blade Runner”, among others (and some crap too). He still has a strong presence, no matter how old he is – today he is 73 years old. But to get back to wearing the Han Solo costumes, the actor asked for a salary of $25 million plus profit sharing. To give you an idea, this is 55 times more than what novice actors earn, or even their colleague Carrie Fisher, who received US$ 1.5 million. And to think that Ford already declared that he wished Han Solo had died in “Return of the Jedi” – these days, with his pocketbook fatter, he must find that thought ridiculous.

Mark Hamill / Luke Skywalker – 1980s and 2015

Hamill had the perfect heartthrob look of the 80s and everything to be successful among the teenagers of the time, but at the end of the trilogy he was unable to remain as a big Hollywood star as his colleague Ford. He starred in some bombs in the 80s, but he was only recognized again working as a voice actor when he voiced the villain Joker in the animations and games of the hero Batman. Today he is 64 years old and has gained a certain style, and even a charm, with that beard that goes well with the old Luke (without the beard he looks very strange).

Carrie Fisher / Princess Leia – 1977 and 2015

Carrie Fisher, just like Hamill, also failed to score in big movies, but unlike her unlucky colleague, she participated in several smaller productions after “Star Wars”. Unfortunately, the eternal Princess Leia was pretty troubled in real life. She spent several years of her life struggling with drug addiction, and has even admitted that she (and other actors) constantly used cocaine while filming the original trilogy. She was also an alcoholic and has bipolar disorder (and you thought the life of a princess was easy), and has even undergone electroshock therapy! Keyed up! She was pretty shabby before the announcement of “The Force Awakens”, about four years ago, but she gave it a retreading, even lost 15 kg to revive the character that enshrined her in pop culture. Fisher is now 59 years old.

Billy Dee Williams / Lando Calrissian – 1980 and 2014

Played Han Solo’s smuggling brother in Episodes V and VI (the Millenium Falcon was originally his, until he lost to Solo in a card game known as sabacc). Today he is 78 years old.

Ian McDiarmid / Palpatine – 2005 and 2015

Ian McDiarmid, popularly known as Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader’s master. He worked on both trilogies, but is more involved with TV projects. He is 71 years old.

Anthony Daniels / С-3РO – 1977 and 2015

Briton Anthony Daniels is the face behind the bumbling robot C-3PO. Little known, he made appearances in some TV series. He reprized his iconic role in “The Force Awakens”. He is 69 years old.

Kenny Baker / R2-D2 – 1977 and 2015

Another unknown face was the dwarf Kenny Baker who played the robot R2-D2 and even returned as a “consultant” in “The Force Awakens”, at the age of 81.

Peter Mayhew / Chewbacca – 1977 and 2015

Another face not well known to the public, but it was the one behind the furry mask of the iconic co-pilot Chewbacca. He reprized the role in “The Force Awakens” in still scenes, as he suffers from knee problems. He is 71 years old.

Frank Oz – Yoda

Frank Oz was responsible for the movements and voice of the wise Master Yoda, who also worked with the manipulation of puppets from Sesame Street and The Muppets. In episodes II and III, Oz only voices the character, since, in these episodes, Yoda becomes computer-animated.

Denis Lawson / Wedge Antilles – 1980 and 2015

Denis Lawson played Luke Skywalker’s childhood friend, who is also a noted X-Wing fighter pilot. Despite appearing very briefly in the original three films, Wedge ended up gaining a certain amount of popularity among fans, as did bounty hunter Boba Fett. He, along with the other pilot Biggs (who died in Episode IV from an attack by Darth Vader in the Death Star scene), always appear as secondary characters in the “Final Fantasy” series of games, including should appear in the “Final Fantasy”. Fantasy VII Remake”, in the resistance group of the REBELS Avalanche. Something curious about Lawson is that he is the uncle, on his mother’s side, of actor Ewan McGregor, who played the role of young Obi-Wan Kenobi. Want another curiosity? He was asked to reprise the role of Wedge in “The Force Awakens”, but believe it or not, he turned it down, as he was already “bored” with the character.

David Prowse / Darth Vader – 1977 and 2015

David Prowse was the face behind Darth Vader’s famous mask, but it wasn’t the face of him in Return of the Jedi, it was the face of the late actor Sebastian Shaw. The character’s famous sinister voice wasn’t done by him either, but by actor/voice actor James Earl Jones.

Jake Lloyd – Anakin Skywalker – 1999 and 2015

The cuddly Anakin Skywalker was played by Jake Lloyd in “Episode I: The Phantom Menace”, at the age of 10 at the time. However, that was the only successful film he made, failing to move his career forward. Recently aged 26, he made headlines for being arrested for drunk driving in the US (including a police chase that ended with him crashing into a tree). After the arrest, the former actor’s mother, Lisa, revealed that her son suffers from schizophrenia and that he would have suffered an attack because he stopped taking medication. She also stated that her son is not violent. For many what could be a dream come true, for him his experience with fame was classified as “complete hell”. According to Lloyd, he was bullied by his schoolmates for participating in “Star Wars” and that he began to hate the world of cinema because of the marathons of more than 50 interviews a day, which for a 10-year-old boy must not be too much. really fun.

Ewan McGregor / Obi-Wan Kenobi – 2005 and 2015

The master of Anakin Skywalker in episodes I, II and III, he played the character for the first time in 1999 at the age of 28, and since then he has consolidated a successful career in Hollywood, working in different types of films. In my humble opinion, the best actor in the new trilogy, he really made a great Obi-Wan and remains an excellent actor today. Today he is 44 years old.

Natalie Portman / Padmé Amidala – 2003 and 2015

The beautiful Natalie Portman has been working as an actress since she was 12 years old, but it was only in Episode I that she gained world stardom, playing Padmé when she was 18 years old. In my opinion, one of the best and most versatile actresses today, after “Star Wars” she scored several successful films such as “Closer”, “Black Swan”, “V for Vendetta”, among many others. Today she is 34 years old, and still beautiful!

Hayden Christensen / Anakin Skywalker – 2005 and 2015

I’m sorry for this guy’s fans, but I think he’s a terrible actor, ham and without any charisma (at least in the two Star Wars he participated). But, regardless of my opinion, he has managed to maintain his career and participated in films such as “Awake – A Vida por um Fio”, “Jumper” and “O Último Coup”. He is now 34 years old.

Liam Neeson / Qui-Gon Jinn – 1999 and 2015

Liam already had a well-established career when he mastered Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episode I, which he did very well. Of course, after the film, his career only improved and today he is an actor with a long curriculum with several good films, and he is the only one in Hollywood who can boast of having been a Jedi Master, of having trained Batman, of being Zeus and having a famous meme🇧🇷

Samuel L. Jackson / Mace Windu – 2005 and 2015

What about Samuel L. Jackson? The most , badass, of the galaxies that ever appeared in the world of cinema! Famous since the 90s, in addition to the large number of films he has already made (he even got beaten badly by Bruce Lee in the classic The Flight of the Dragon), he has participated in TV series and worked as a voice actor, including for video games. A big fan of the “Star Wars” saga, he is the only one to use a purple lightsaber, because the actor asked George Lucas for this differential, to be able to “see himself” in the arena where several Jedis are fighting in “Episode II”. Lucas would have said that there were only three colors of sabers in the universe of the saga, and according to Jackson, he replied: “Yeah, but I want a purple one. I’m like the second baddest Jedi in the universe after Yoda.” In the end, Lucas ended up giving Mace Windu a purple saber, which turned out really cool! Today he is 67 years old with a lot of mother___ercity!
