Star Wars Character Ages

How old is Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi? How old are Han and Lando in the Solo movie? How old are Rey and Kylo Ren in The Rise of Skywalker? All the answers are right here!

Ages and birthdates are based on Lucasfilm or Lucasfilm-licensed sources. Where no precise age is available from the new canon (after the 2014 expanded universe reboot), ages from pre-2014 Legends sources are used. Many ages from Legends have been confirmed in the new canon, so the rest are likely to be correct too.

In cases where new canon sources directly contradict the Legends sources, both versions are given in separate rows.

Characters are listed in alphabetical order by first name or title. If you can't find the character you're looking for, you can use the "Find in page" function of your browser to search for it (CTRL + F on Windows computers).

*According to sources published at the time the prequels came out, Anakin was 20 in Episode II, but 9 in Episode I, which took place ten years earlier. The explanation for this was that he turned ten right after Episode I, and the two movies are actually about ten years and one month apart. However, in newer sources, his birth date has been set at 41 years before the Battle of Yavin, implying that his age in Episode II and subsequent stories is one year less than previously thought.

**Older sources say that C-3PO was built 112 years before the Battle of Yavin, but this is apparently disproven in Episode I. However, it could still be true from a certain point of view; Legends sources say Anakin built C-3PO largely from parts of a trashed protocol droid manufactured 80 years before.

†Older sources put Luke and Leia at either 18 or 20 years old at the time of Episode IV, but we now know that they are born in Episode III, which takes places 19 years before.
