Complete Angry Birds Star Wars 2 Characters Guide – All Characters & Powers

With the release of Angry Birds Star Wars II comes incredible responsibility… To remember all of the characters, that is.

We put names to faces, explain their abilities, and hopefully answer a few questions along the way. Be sure to use the quick links below to jump between the Bird Side and the Pork Side.

Thanks, I’ve identified the characters by doing just that, hadn’t noticed whether or not the new characters are listed under rebels achievements or not though. That said, I dont know if say ‘chopper is reward level br26, br28 or br29, etc etc and as I’ve not yet unlocked these levels I’ve no way of knowing, hence my asking if anyone can help match the characters listed to the levels listed. ;)

Oh, & btw i got one for vizago droid
“The Vizago Droid has the same power as Gold C-3PO, but there are lesser pieces to this droid. But at least you dont have to use traitor for C-3PO anymore.”
You can use these exact words if you want.

One of the better levels to rack up points quickly is Rewards Chapter Level BR-11 (Chewbacca). Good luck!

Can you change the characters page? Revenge of the Pork has unlocked Kit Fisto, General Grievous, Anakin Episode III (sith apprentice) and shocktrooper. Everything else is probably telepods or character swaps.

You can “swap” that character(s) once per try, but on any try you want and on as many tries as you want.

Both gals are related.

Queen Padme Amidala of Naboo is secretly married to Anakin Skywalker during episode 2 which makes Anakin’s fall to the Dark Side, Padme’s 2 new babies before birth at Episode 3. Those babies are Luke and Leia Skywalker. The reason Leia’s name became Leia Organa is because she was sent to Bail Organa of Alderaan which made her princess. For Luke, he was sent to Owen and Beru Lars, but his family name did not change. Both Obi-Wan and Yoda separate them to overthrow the empire with them. Also, the reason why Obi-Wan’s appearance changed is because, he was a Jedi in episodes 1 to 3, but he hid as an old hermit under the name Ben Kenobi, and he also used a cape to disguise his identity as a Jedi to Luke until the time comes.
