Best way to "import" a character?

I have a Boba Fett character with a gun in one Blender file.

I want to animate him shooting a Stormtrooper, which is rigged in a different Blender file.

I have no problem appending meshes, but how can I append, or “import” the Stormtrooper rig with mesh into the Boba Fett Blender file?

thank you for your help!!

Nevermind I figured it out! I just append as normal, but when I access the OBJECT folder, use SHIFT to select all the parts needed for my complete rig and character.
cheers,
Otto

The best way would be to go into the original .blend file and select what you want to append to a different .blend and press Ctrl+G to group them together. When appending from that file you’ll see a new folder called Groups and then just append that group.
