10 Oldest Characters In Star Wars Universe

10. R2-D2 & C-3PO - 66 Years Of Age

LucasFilm

At one point, there was a time where C-3PO was already deemed to be over 100 years of age by the time the events of 1977’s Star Wars – or A New Hope, if you’re one of those people – took place.

Seemingly, The Phantom Menace disproved that theory, and instead it’s largely recognised that both C-3PO and bestest bud R2-D2 came into creation approximately 30 years before we picked things up with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker in that ’77 picture.

Based on that logic, these two droids round out our list here by clocking in at 66 years of age when we picked things up with them in the landscape of The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and this year's The Rise of Skywalker. And to think, both 3PO and R2 were being offered up for scrap as far back as their very first appearance.

If you don’t count droids as characters who truly age, of course, then you can put Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian in the #10 spot of this list. By the time Lando returns to action in this December's Episode IX, the coolest cat in the galaxy will be 65 years of age.
