Tuesday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's question is:
The Mercury Bobcat. I'm impressed that two people got that one!

Today's (somewhat easier) question is:
Which characters appeared in all six Star Wars movies?

We say Obi-wan, Darth Vader/Anikin, CP-30, R2-D2, and the Emporer/Palpatine.

Anakin (Darth Vader)
OB1
R2D2
C3P0
How is that easy?

"Which characters appeared in all six Star Wars movies?"

Without the scripts, this is a toughie. I'm going to guess something like, "All except for 'z' and 'x'." I won't be surprised if the answer is, "All of them." Do the closing credits count?

R2-D2, C-3PO & Anakin Skywaker/Darth Vader

I'm going to go with Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, ObiWan Kenobi, R2D2, and C3PO.

If you count Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine/Senator Palpatine, then him.

Bail Organa, I believe.

Yoda.

Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.

C3PO.

R2-D2.

That's all I remember.

R2D2, C3PO, Darth Vader/Annakin Skywalker, Obi Wan, Emperor Palpatine?

Cantina Band reject said...

R2D2 and C3PO...

But I think Kenobi was in 'em all, too. Or are you going to get picky about flesh vs. spirit? In the Star Wars universe, that line is fairly fine. One way or another, Sir Alec Guiness or Ewan MacGregor made it into each film.

I still say the one film sans Palpatine was the best of the lot.

1. C3PO
2. R2D2
3. Obi Wan Kenobi
4. Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader

Since you haven't posted the answer yet, here are my educated guesses:
Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker
The Emperor
Obi-Wan Kenobi/Ben Kenobi
Possibly:
Jabba the Hut

Steve USMA '85 said...

Oh, add in C3PO to the for sure ones on my answer.

Chanman said...

C-3PO, R2D2, Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader

I just know I'm missing someone.

Aunt Beru said...

Anakin = I, II, III, and VI
Vader: III, IV, V, and VI

Darren said...

Anakin and Vader, while the same person physically, are two different characters--at least in my book.

Steve USMA '85 said...

Your book is wrong according to most of your blog readers.

Darren said...

My blog readers need to RTP. RTFP. :-)

Steve USMA '85 said...

We RTFP Darren. You apparently didn't state the problem very well. Character has many different definitions. You seem to use the definition that the traits define the character and if the traits change, it is a new character. If you are using the change in 'good' Anakin to 'evil' Darth, then how do you explain SW III? He changed during the movie and thus is he two characters?
Your bloggers use a seemingly more accepted version of character that means simply a person. Darth Vader was always Anakin Skywalker. A name change does not change the character. If it does, Palpatine was 'Senator Palpatine" in SW I & II. 'Emperor Palpatine' in SW III; and simply 'The Emperor' in SW IV-VI.
So, by what I believe to be your definition, he wouldn't be the same character either.
You are going to have to define what the problem was before you can accuse us of not RTFP my friend.

Since you're scoring this yourself, feel free to give yourself credit for Skywalker/Vader if you like.
