Do you have a young Star Wars fan at home? If you do, they probably have strong feelings about Episodes 1-3. It was hard for older fans (like me) to accept new characters and a new storyline after such a long time. But I think most people can agree that the movies are awesome.
If you enjoy a fun Disney printable and want to revisit the characters and places of Episodes 1-3, grab a copy of this free Star Wars word search.

Star Wars Word Search
This Star Wars word search contains 20 words all related to movie Episodes 1-3. The words can be found horizontally, vertically, and diagonally, plus they can be forwards or backwards.
There are so many characters, locations, and themes that are found throughout all of the Star Wars movies. For this word search, I tried to focus on what could be considered the most important for Episodes 1-3. The following words are included:
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
- Count Dooku
- Mace Windu
- Trade Federation
- Galactic Republic
- Darth Sideous
- Clone Troopers
- Jango Fett
- Padmé Amidala
- Qui-Gon Jinn
- Jar Jar Binks
What You Will Need
- Basic printer paper
- A printer
- Something for your child to use to mark the words (pencil, crayon, marker, etc.)
What Else You Might Need
If you would like to print out the word search and reuse it multiple times, you could use a laminator and laminating pouches. Then your child could use a dry erase marker or wet erase marker to complete the activity.
Ways to Use This Star Wars Word Search
- Have your child circle or underline the words as they find them. Use a pencil, colored pencil, crayon, or marker.
- If it’s easier for your child, he or she can use a highlighter or pale marker to highlight the words instead.
- Another option would be to have your child dot each letter in the word with a bingo dauber. They are always lots of fun for kids!
