    Carrie Fisher no doubt. Too young.. and no telling how better TROS would have been w/ her actually in it.
    I would have totally geeked out seeing Luke and Leia take on Palpatine.

    I voted Kanan because during that moment you think “Oh there’s no real Danger to Kanan” and then it hits you and you think he will come back but he doesn’t.

    I cried and couldn’t get over it for days

    Obi-Wan for me. His last look to where Luke and Leia are together in the corridor, probably the first time he has seen both since their birth, makes it a more poignant moment, making himself 'at one with the force'.

    (I do know this was well before Leia being retconned as Luke's sister, and obviously before the birth of the twins in TROS for which he is present, but the later change does give this scene more meaning, and his sacrifice in looking after Luke for so many years (and maybe even Leia too on occasion depending upon the new Obi-Wan series? ;))

    Admiral Raddus deserves a shout-out too! Absolute ledge.

    On the list: Satine, Qui-Gon, and Padme. Off the list, Kit Fisto, Aalya Secura, and that one Jedi boy that died in front of Bail in ROTS. I was around his age when I first saw the movie, maybe a tad older, so I felt similarly...

    In terms of the emotional depth and timing of a death, I think it's Han Solo. That's not a knock on any other death in the franchise, it's just that that was a character that had several movies to breathe and grow, decades to linger in your mind, and then a sudden, striking, and thematically appropriate death that served a purpose. It might be the most well-done piece of the sequel trilogy.

    I selected multiple options in the poll. But, Qui-Gon Jinn was the safest death for me. It's also one of my favorite John Williams pieces... Duel of the Fates.

    I definitely agree with Carrie Fisher but I voted anakin and not when he dies as darth but when he loses himself on mustafar and the evil takes him. But in terms of actual on screen death I have to say Han Solo. For me and most other people it’s the fact he dies by the hand of his own son :((

    Admiral Ackbar's death upset me, I hate how he just got farted out into space like some generic background extra.

    That's hard to choose but one of the main ones was Han Solo's death. He was such a prominent character and for him to die from his own son was hard. The entire Rogue One group dying was hard too. You really grew to love the characters throughout the movie and it was hard to see them die. They fulfilled their purposes but you could feel as if they had more to offer to the galaxy. Then Kanan Jarrus' death was hard as well. He was easily one of my favorite characters in the Rebels series and him dying was not easy.

    He came back though.
