    Greetings all - we had some great entries for this contest and it was very tough deciding on the top ten. The winner was randomly drawn from these 10 and that is

    CHEWBLACCA!

    Congratulations!

    Some creative stuff here although I did see some themes developing. Daisy as Jaina Solo was probably the most popular. Also Serkis as Gollum was also a popular direction - and one of these caught the eye of our judges. I also applaud some of the diversity of the answers. Some are serious, some are joking but all are creative.

    Thanks to everyone for playing - here are, in random order, the 10 completely subjective favorites of our judges.

    Domhnall Gleeson will play Hilam Attian, Jedi Apprentice to Master Luke Skywalker. The two share a brotherly connection… while young Hilam provides a solid foundation in Jedi tradition, it often counters the more open minded views of his experienced Master. In a galaxy resilient to the return of the Jedi Order, both Attian and Skywalker are bound both to their morality, and to the Force.

    Oscar Isaac plays Jedi Phhssuss Mothma the son of Mon Mothma, he's on a personal quest to find out who is his father. He discovers that he's the love child of Mon Mothma and Admiral Ackbar. Disgusted that he's a squid baby, he gets drunk and joins the Dark Side to destroy his mom and dad's New Republic.

    Andy Serkis:
    He will be playing the part of Smeagol Skywalker, Luke Skywalker's son. A Jedi with dual personalities, torn between the dark and light sides of the Force.
    "But the fat Jedi, he knows. Eyes always watching."

    Andy Serkis
    Yoda's Species (I'm going to use Lucas's joking name for them, Frog)

    Orphaned on the fateful day in 19 BBY that Order 66 fell upon the Jedi, Roggee, was saved from death due to the fact that he was too young to be in Padawan training. Upon hearing of the fate of all Jedi, including Roggee's parents, a family friend, Fre'dar (a larger human trader), took Roggee onto his merchant ship and raised the boy. Fre'dar understood what would happen to everyone on the ship if Roggee were found and spent many, many hours teaching the young Frog to be afraid of using any of his abilities, even in private. He often conveyed the kindness of Roggee's parents, but consistently chose not to describe their battle prowess or the Force in general.

    As the Empire's searches grew more invasive, Fre'dar took his ship and the crew that stayed with the ship further from the more populated areas and started doing supply runs to the colonies and stations on the fringes of the Empire. in 5 ABY, Fre'dar's ship was stopped for inspection by an Imperial Patrol ship. It was the first time the ship had been searched in years, but Fre'dar had heard about the new protocols enacted to catch rebels. He knew that his adopted son would be found if he hid, so he quickly added Roggee to the crew manifest and had him stand with the crew, holding a last hope that time had fogged the memories of the Frogs. Sadly, this was not the case, and the troopers quickly trained their weapons on Roggee. Fre'dar jumped in front of the blast and Roggee's resulting anger at seeing his adoptive father's death broke through everything holding back his force powers. The troopers were dead within minutes. Seeing as the rest of Fre'dar's crew hadn't attempted to fight on either side, Roggee couldn't find it in his heart to trust them. The young Force adept took the Patrol Ship and left the trader ship, heading back to the Imperial center to have his revenge.

    Once in better traveled areas, he quickly learned of the Battle of Endor and of the many civil engagements between many species and their former Imperial masters. His anger still strong, Roggee chose to devote himself to the eradication of every remaining Empirical hold out. His actions quickly drew the attention of Luke Skywalker. Luke attempted to pass on the lessons of Yoda and Roggee did appear to lose a measure of his bloodlust. Only time will tell, however if he is truly on the path of the Jedi, or quietly succumbing to the lure of the dark side.

    Andy Serkis will portray 'Dop Na-Nar' A 3 armed 3 legged reptilian fish type species with wings and a fish tail. Also only one of his fish eyes works cause the other was shot, so he has an eye patch. Also when he speaks hes always gasping for breath cause he has gills and requires a breathing apparatus. But instead of sounding like Vader, its more like a gurgling sound. And he has to walk with a limp cause one of his legs has a knee brace. He is a Bounty Hunter. His sidekick 'Glip Koza' of the same species, is his apprentice who was injured in a gun fight(the one where Dop lost his eye)and is unable to leave the aquarium on their ship while he recovers. So he follows Dop as a mobile hologram everywhere. They are searching for a stolen ship which was taken by a malfunctioning droid. Which was actually built by the original pilots half-brother-in-law (But they don't know that yet) The ship has crashed on an abandoned planet that was mined of all its resources and its entire surface is covered in tunnels which were made by drilling machines. The planet has become the head quarters of a notorious space pirate gang who use the tunnels to trap anyone who lands there. ( But he doesn't know any of that yet)

    Andy Serkis - Cal Duket, friend and advisor to Princess Leia.
    Cal was born on Alderaan, and learned that he was sensitive to the force at a young age. Cal was off world when Alderaan was destroyed. All alone he was discovered by Asajj Ventress who taught him the ways of the sith. Now, Cal waits and plans for the perfect time to strike at Princess Leia who he blames for the destruction of Alderaan and the death of his family.

    I think Andy Serkis will play the Gungan Kandin Tarpals. He's a descendant of Captain Tarpals and a fellow Jedi of Luke's. He'll be quite an awesome character and will redeem the Gungan race in the audiences opinion.

    Andy Serkis will play the role of mulloG : The Last Son of Dantooine (yeah, the one that's "too remote")

    All his life, mullogG dreams of far-off lands and magical places like Toshi Station and Sarlacc Stadium. He's heard all the history lessons about how Dantooine isn't good enough to host the Rebel Country Club Invitational or even be on the wrong end of a test blast from that creaky old Death Star Museum. mulloG promises himself that "One day, I'm going to put Dantooine on the map. I'll show those snotty Solo-Skywalker kids that their high levels of midi-chlorians are no match for good, old-fashioned, Dantooine work ethic!" Soon, on May 4th (?!) December 18, 2015, mulloG gets his chance for redemption ...
