Silk's Star Wars Database

This Silk uses the amazing SWAPI (Star Wars API) built by Paul Hallett to retrieve information about the characters, planets, species and vehicles of the 7 Star Wars films. (This means that additional entities of the Star Wars' universe  not  mentioned in the movies won't appear here.)

Disclaimer: data retrieved on Feb. 19th 2016 from SWAPI. We used this as our source, as we regarded it accurate. Should you spot any inaccuracies, pleas let us know. We engourage community contributions!

Star Wars Characters: Can you name all the pilots of the Millennium Falcon?

The following interactive table can be used to sift through all the 86 characters covered in this database. Using the filters you can create (and then embed/share) grids highlighting which characters appeared on board of a specific vehicle, which ones come from a specific planet, or which female characters appear in each movie.
