Sorting ‘Star Wars’ Characters Into Their Hogwarts Houses

Why haven’t we thought about mashing ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Harry Potter’ together yet? It’s about time we did something about that.

With The Book of Boba Fett finishing up the first season on Disney Plus, I’ve gotten to thinking about what Hogwarts house the characters would be in. There are plenty of characters I could talk about, but I’m going to stick to the main bunch that always come up in conversation. I’ll be talking about what house they’re in and why, as well as what their life would be like in the wizarding world.

And if you’re unfamiliar with the houses, here are the basics: Hufflepuffs are loyal and hard-working, Ravenclaws are wise and creative, Slytherins are ambitious and cunning, and Gryffindors are typically reckless and courageous.

Rose Tico: Hufflepuff

I know most people don’t like Rose much, but I think she deserved better. That’s why I’m including her on this list. She’s extremely loyal and hard-working, as we saw in The Last Jedi. And while she may seem courageous, the most important thing to her was her allegiance to the rebellion. That’s why she’s quickly sorted into Hufflepuff.

While at Hogwarts, she’d excel in Transfiguration class. She’d love that she could change objects around her house into more useful things when she needs to. I think she’d also be the keeper on the Quidditch team for her last four years. After Hogwarts, she’d become an Auror, following in her sister’s footsteps and trying to make a difference in the world.

Poe Dameron: Gryffindor

You can’t tell me this man isn’t the most reckless out of all the Star Wars characters. He’s the literal embodiment of a Gryffindor. In addition to being reckless beyond belief, he’s also one of the most determined characters of the sequels.

Poe’s best classes would be Charms and Transfiguration. In addition, he’s definitely the star chaser after starting on the Quidditch team in his second year. He’d also be like the Marauders, getting in trouble left and right. After Hogwarts, he’d be a Cursebreaker traveling all over the world.

Mando:  Gryffindor

This was a little hard because I couldn’t quite figure out if he was Hufflepuff or Gryffindor. But I settled on Gryffindor for one main reason. His determination has led him into many conflicts throughout The Mandalorian so far.

At Hogwarts, I could see Mando doing particularly well in Defense Against the Dark Arts. I also don’t think he’d join the Quidditch team but would instead prefer traipsing around the castle looking for hidden passages ways. After Hogwarts, he’d definitely be an Auror.

Boba Fett: Slytherin

Boba Fett would do anything to get what he wanted. He would switch sides to align himself with whoever seemed to be winning in anything. He’s also extremely resourceful; I mean, how else would he have survived falling into a Sarlacc?

I think Boba Fett would excel in Defense Against the Dark Arts, but I think he’d most enjoy Charms with Flitwick. Boba would also join his Quidditch team as a chaser in his fifth year after watching from the sidelines. He’d also be a bounty hunter, working closely with Aurors but never becoming one.

Ahsoka Tano: Ravenclaw

While Ahsoka is brave and ambitious, I feel like she values learning and wisdom more than her other Force-sensitive peers. While most of the other Force users are in one of the other houses, only four made it into Ravenclaw. And Ahsoka is one of them.

Ahsoka would be one of the top students at Hogwarts, with every class except Divination coming easily to her. She’d also be one of the fastest flyers, becoming a Seeker for three years before deciding to spend her last year on the sidelines. After Hogwarts, she’d run a wand business that allows her to travel.

Finn: Hufflepuff

I don’t know why, but when I look at Finn, all I can think is he’d be a Hufflepuff. After running away and meeting Rey, all he does throughout the rest of the sequel films is try to help her. Even at the beginning of The Last Jedi, he only thought about getting to her.

I see Finn loving his Care of Magical Creatures classes most. He’d also do well in Charms and Potions, but he’d prefer spending his time with the animals. After Hogwarts, he’d work in the Creatures department of the Ministry of Magic.

Rey: Ravenclaw

Up until the very end, Rey had been searching for ways to learn about her family. She goes on her journey throughout the sequel movies not to join the resistance but to find who she is and what she’s capable of. Not to mention, she’s crafty, which is also a Ravenclaw trait.

While at Hogwarts, I see Rey doing well in Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts, and Care of Magical Creatures. In fact, being around the animals is how she met Finn. She’d also be the Ravenclaw seeker after Ahsoka steps down. After Hogwarts, she’d be an Auror who also specializes in healing others in the heat of battle.

Kylo Ren: Slytherin

Kylo Ren is probably the most like Draco out of any other fictional character I’ve ever seen. The only difference between the two is that we see Kylo’s redemption arc that shows he’s not a bad guy. He just got sidetracked trying to reach his ambitions of being powerful like his grandfather. And he’s willing to do whatever it takes – remember how he killed his father?

At Hogwarts, Kylo would go by Ben and do really well in his Potions and Divination classes. His fascination with Rey starts when they have detention in Potions one day. The two of them have a rivalry in Quidditch as he is the opposing seeker for Slytherin. Once he graduated from Hogwarts, he’d work in the Ministry, trying to eventually become the Minister of Magic.

Emperor Palpatine: Slytherin

While not all Slytherin are evil, there are a select few that are especially bad. And Palpatine is one of them. Everything we saw him do was to be more powerful, both with the Force and in politics. I can’t imagine a better example of a bad Slytherin that fits the wizarding world’s stereotypes.

For some reason, I see Palpatine sneaking into the Restricted Section of the library in his first year somehow. He’d also excel in History of Magic (which is what led him to that specific section). After Hogwarts, he’d quickly climb the ranks in the Ministry of Magic, becoming Minister at only 30 years old.

Padme Amidala: Slytherin

On the opposite side of the Slytherin coin, Padme is a Slytherin that isn’t bad to the bone. She’s resourceful in many ways. The first I can think of is when she uses her handmaidens as doubles to keep her safe. She’s also ambitious in wanting to create a stronger government, which is also why she needs her body doubles.

At Hogwarts, Padme would immediately do well in History of Magic, Transfiguration, and Charms. She’d never join the Quidditch team and would be slightly ostracized for cheering on the Gryffindor seeker from time to time. After Hogwarts, she’d work in the Ministry of Magic but would also work closely with Cursebreakers and Gringotts.

Anakin Skywalker: Gryffindor

This might be a bit shocking, but I don’t think Anakin is a Slytherin like many assume. He’s not resourceful, cunning, or ambitious. He’s just extremely courageous and will run headfirst into any confrontation. I mean, he was reckless enough to turn to the Dark Side just because he was too passionate to be a Jedi.

Anakin would do well in Defense Against the Dark Arts before finding himself reading about different kinds of curses and dark magic. I also think he’d be the Slytherin seeker starting in his fourth year. Once he’d finish school, he’d be an Auror before being taken to Azkaban for his use of dark magic. I think it would take quite a few years before he was arrested, though.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Hufflepuff

Obi-Wan is one of, if not the, most loyal Jedi to the Order that we’ve seen so far. He was also highly dedicated to his Padawan, Anakin, even after he’d gone to the Dark Side. Even in the original trilogy, he was looking for ways to defeat him without killing him or bringing him back from the Dark Side.

While at Hogwarts, I can see Obi-Wan doing particularly well in Defense Against the Dark Arts and Astronomy. He’d struggle with Divination, but he loves it nonetheless. After Hogwarts, he’d definitely be an Auror for quite a while before deciding a life as a Cursebreaker was more his speed.

Han Solo: Hufflepuff

This might be a little controversial, but I think Han Solo is just an attractive, sarcastic goober, especially when he’s with Chewbacca. And I don’t think he fits perfectly into any house, which is why he’d be a Hufflepuff at Hogwarts. The Hufflepuff is home to the loyal and hard-working, but also to those that don’t fit in the other houses.

I can see Han Solo blowing off most of his classes but somehow getting amazing scores on his tests. His top scores would be in Arithmancy. I also want to mention Han is a Muggle-born wizard (it’s not important, but that’s just something I wanted to add). After Hogwarts, he’d be a traveling salesman and bounty hunter, usually just barely avoiding the law.

Leia Organa: Ravenclaw

Leia is the third Force user that would have been sorted into Ravenclaw. One of the main traits Ravenclaws have is wit, and you can’t tell me Leia isn’t witty in almost every interaction she has. She’s also one of the most intelligent people in the series. I couldn’t imagine her in any other house.

At Hogwarts, Leia would be the top student in Charms and Transfiguration in all her years at Hogwarts. She’d also be the star chaser on the Quidditch team with a sibling rivalry with her Gryffindor twin. Once she’s finished school, she would be a Ministry of Magic employee.

Luke Skywalker: Gryffindor

While I want to say he’s a Ravenclaw, I just can’t. He’s got the reckless bravery that Gryffindors need to have. In his original series, I don’t remember him taking the time to think things through before acting. And when we see him in the sequel movies, he’s a recluse because his passion got the better of him, and his regret had taken over his life.

Luke would excel in Defense Against the Dark Arts and eventually tutor younger students in the class. He’d also find a way to stay out of trouble despite being friends with the biggest troublemaker in the school, Han Solo. Luke and Leia would always practice Quidditch together, coming up with new maneuvers. After Hogwarts, he’d be a professor before retiring to a wand farm.

Chewbacca: Hufflepuff

Chewbacca is loyal to Han Solo, even when everything seems to be going wrong. After Kylo Ren killed Han, he still stuck by those he had grown to care for. And while he’s courageous, he doesn’t have the recklessness or passion that would put him in Gryffindor. He also doesn’t have the same values as the other houses usually have. That’s why Chewbacca is the perfect Hufflepuff companion.

Imagine Chewbacca is a wizard instead of a furry monster-looking creature. Before he even gets on the Hogwarts Express, he’d befriend Han Solo. Throughout their time, he’d excel in Charms and get in a lot of trouble with his friends. After Hogwarts, he’d join Han Solo traveling the world selling random magical objects and hunting down evil wizards and witches.

Yoda: Ravenclaw

I had to end this list with Yoda, one of the most iconic characters from the series. He’s also just so happens to be the last Ravenclaw from the Star Wars franchise. You can’t look at Yoda and tell me he isn’t the wisest character in any of the movies. That’s exactly why I had to sort him into Ravenclaw.

He’d be one of the best Divination students around, and Yoda would also enjoy History of Magic. After Hogwarts, he’d be an Auror, no question.
