With so many villains on the dark side of the Force, there has to be someone to fight against them to re-establish peace in the far, far away galaxy. They have in common what heroes usually have: selflessness, courage, morality, and desire to fight for the right cause. From droids to furry creatures, Jedi and characters who left their normal lives behind to fight the war against the dark Force, they all deserve a place in the list.
We have put together a list of the best Star Wars movie heroes, and we hope you find your favorite there. Don't forget to explore the list to the last page, mostly if you haven't found your Star Wars movie hero on the first pages.

10. R2 D2 (ARTOO-DETOO)
R2 D2 is an astromech droid and he might be one of the most important characters in the Star Wars saga. He saved the day in many situations and his presence was critical in saving the lives of others. Usually droids develop their personality in time, and R2 D2 proved to have a strong one, he is not a standard droid.
And while other standard droids don't build personality quirks because of memory being wiped, this didn't happen to Artoo Detoo.
In Return of the Jedi, R2 D2 saves Luke, Leia and Han from Jabba the Hutt and in The Empire Strikes Back he has a major contribution at escaping the Imperial forces. He is always by the side of those who fight the dark Force, and many times the one who saves them.
R2 D2 is one of the reasons why most of the Star Wars movie heroes are still alive.
