Have you ever wondered where Star Wars characters would live if they didn’t come from a galaxy far, far away? We have too so we matched some of the most popular characters with each of the 50 states.

The Stars Wars franchise continues to be one of the biggest pop culture phenomenons of all time. With movies, spin-offs, TV shows, comics, books, and loads of merchandise, Star Wars is everywhere. Even though the first Star Wars film premiered over 40 years ago, there has never been a slow down of new material.

Next up, Star Wars fans can look forward to new series launching on Disney Plus. There is also the impending opening of multiple Star Wars theme parks in Disney. And of course, we can’t forget the arrival of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker which is set to hit theaters this December.

The epic space adventure wouldn’t be as popular if it wasn’t for the character-driven stories. Each fan of the franchise probably has their own set of favorite characters. With a universe as big as Star Wars, there is certainly no shortage of characters, creatures, and species. We thought it would be fun to match those faces to each of the 50 states.

We dove deep into the backstories of popular Star Wars characters and compared them to each state’s well-known facts, histories, or geography to come up with the matches. Some were obviously easier than others. A few characters that made the list might even be a surprise to some.

Below is our list in no particular order. Be sure to head to the comment section and add your state and explain what Star Wars character you think would be a good match.
