This Is Madness 2016: The Star Wars Character Tournament Is Back On March 14th!


It’s that time of year again, where “Star Wars” fans have to make the tough choices of choosing their favorite characters in the This Is Madness 2016 Star Wars Character Tournament!

This year looks to be the toughest one yet, as we now have some great new characters from “The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars Rebels” going up against classic characters, making the our choices that much more difficult.

Here are all the details on the match ups and prizes you can win for predicting the winners of the match ups  from StarWars.com:

VOTING BEGINS MONDAY, MARCH 14!

Set your hyperspace coordinates for StarWars.com/This-Is-Madness — the tournament kicks off on Monday, March 14. Vote on new matchups every day until the championship showdown on Monday, April 4; the winner will be announced on Tuesday, April 5. Get a first look at the bracket below, including opening round matchups!

2016-Bracket1

In This Is Madness, characters are divided into two conferences: Light Side and Dark Side. Jedi, scoundrels, Sith, bounty hunters, princesses, and ball-shaped astromechs all compete against each other, and you decide the winner by voting for your favorites. New entrants this year come from all facets of the Star Wars universe. From Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey, BB-8, Finn, Kylo Ren, General Hux, and Captain Phasma join the fray; Star Wars Rebels‘ Sabine Wren, Agent Kallus, the Fifth Brother, and the Seventh Sister also make their tourney debut. Once the competition begins, new matchups occur daily, and are decided by fan voting, leading up to a final round where a single character is crowned champion. Real-time matchup updates are available on the site, letting you know if your favorite characters are winning…or if you need to double your efforts and rally the troops. This year, the odds-touting golden droid, C-3PO, will offer his opinion on each matchup. (Whether you listen to his advice or decide you aren’t interested in his opinion is entirely up to you.)

PREDICT THE MADNESS, WIN MUCH MORE THAN A QUARTER PORTION

Can you see the future as well as Yoda? Now’s the time to put your abilities to the test. Wookieepedia once again presents Predict the Madness, where fans can fill out their own brackets and take home amazing prizes that Unkar Plutt would love! Here’s how it works: Visit Predict the Madness, pick who you think will win each matchup and, ultimately, the tournament. Choose wisely! The most accurate brackets will qualify for incredible prizes, but make like BB-8 speeding away from the First Order — the deadline to submit your bracket is Monday, March 14, at 9:59 a.m., or just before the first round of This Is Madness begins.
