Poll Results: Favorite New Character from Rogue One

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story broke the $1 billion mark at the global box office this weekend and last weekend captured the 2016 box office crown, the second year in a row a Star Wars film has held it (and it’s tough to imagine anything outgrossing Episode VIII later this year).  With each new Star Wars film, come new characters to the Saga’s canon.  Last year, KT readers picked Rey as their favorite character from Episode VII, this year when asked for their favorite from Rogue One, it was never even close.  Donnie Yen’s blind, Force-sensitive monk Chirrut Imwe dominated the voting from the first day.  Finishing second was Felicity Jones; Jyn Erso, and third (my pick a hair over Chirrut) Alan Tudyk’s sarcastic droid K-2SO.  Every new character got votes, though, which is a tribute to how much fans have embraced this film, and how successful the first standalone Star Wars film has been.  Stay tuned this week: after the Oscar nominations are released, the 5th annual KT Community Movie of the Year Poll will go live!
