In Star Wars, a plethora of sentient beings play massive roles in making the galaxy far, far away actually feel significantly different from our own, despite its 1970s overtones.

These aliens are arguably the most crucial side characters because they normalize a future where humans and aliens intermingle freely without shock or awe.

This is a collection of interesting facts about aliens from the Star Wars galaxy you probably didn't know about. Take a gander and be sure to vote up the most interesting facts below!
