Here's What Star Wars Characters Look Like Out of Costume

Redbook Logo By Angel Madison of Redbook | Slide 1 of 29: The Star Wars franchise has always worked to create a completely surreal universe filled with some spectacularly unusual characters, and some of the most memorable villains of all time. To do that, they've used everything from expert puppeteering skills, actors in elaborate makeup and costumes and some motion capture for CGI. It looks so believable that you might forget there's an actual person inside R2D2 or that hairy Chewbacca suit. So while Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill all became recognizable household names and stars after the original trilogy, that didn't happen for the multitude of actors in costumes that rounded out the movies. And Star Wars productions are still hiding people in plain sight, even in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, the lead of the show, Pedro Pascal, has his actual face obscured for 99 percent of his screen time. This movie magic has allowed for some fun cameos, like Daniel Craig sneaking in as a stormtrooper in The Force Awakens. We've decided to unmask some of these famous characters so you can see what's underneath all that Wookie fur and clone armor.
