Cheddar: Which 'Star Wars' characters rack up the most screen time?

Posted: Updated:

Did you know that, according to Swiss researchers, there are 21,647 characters in the "Star Wars" universe? Which means getting screen time is very competitive.

So which character appears the most throughout the saga?

Anakin Skywalker wins in a landslide, according to data from Reddit user Munky 86. Obi-Wan Kenobi is right behind him, and here's why: He appears as his younger self in the prequel trilogy, and again in the original three movies.

And even though Darth Vader became an instantly iconic villain when the first installment hit theaters, he only appears on screen for 12 minutes, which is under 10% of the whole movie.

Cheddar will air "Farewell to the Force" on Thursday, Dec. 19 to celebrate the release of the final film of the Skywalker saga.
