As a fan I undertook the challenge to complete one Star Wars portrait every week until The Force Awakens was released, a full year from the time of starting. That’s fifty-two characters, in no particular order, that kept me, and maybe a fellow fan or two sane until episode VII delighted us all/destroyed the internet with the combined spite of shattered childhoods (delete as appropriate).
The Force Awakens introduced new characters of course, and so I continued. Original actors and fans alike showed their support (perhaps out of pity by that point, who knows?) then came more films, with more characters. More time out of my busy schedule... may the Force be with me.
