Everyone’s fave Star Wars scenes

It’s Star Wars Day, which means that if you’re not talking about Star Wars, we’re not listening. The Star Wars movies, books, conventions, costumes, themes, will pretty much be engraved in society until the end of time… and we’re not complaining.

To celebrate this super magical day, we’ve put together a list of the BEST scenes from any Star Wars movie, ever. In no particular order…

1.

Which film?

A New Hope

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

Obviously we gotta start this list with the iconic eight words that started literally everything. Can you feel the adventure looming around the corner? Can you?! Of course you can. That’s the magic of Star Wars, duh.

2.

Which film?

The Empire Strikes Back

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

Did someone say ICONIC? You don’t have to have seen a single second of Star Wars to know this quote, and why? ‘Cause it was the very moment the planet stopped spinning, the universe turned upside down and trees shed all their leaves. Luke finds out that the very person who’s been tormenting him about his past is none other than his effing father. Talk about Daddy issues, amirite?

3.

Which film?

The Empire Strikes Back

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

Take that, every rom-com ever! This is high level romance without being sappy or 100% boring and predictable. This interaction is playful and cute and those aren’t tears, our eyes are sweating!

4.

Which film?

A New Hope

Which scene?

This whole thing.

Why is it the best?

The way they take the p*ss out of one another, the way they fight, the way they breathe, the way they exist – we love it all. It’s intense, it’s energetic, and it’s pretty hilarious, tbh. Like, how can one scene have it all?! It’s just too perfect. Too. Perfect.

5.

Which film?

Rogue One

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

We don’t have to only love the scenes with the heroes. Sometimes villains being villains can get you feeling some major feelings. You’ll be torn. Do you sit there, amazed, admiring Darth Vader’s flair for #drama with the powerful entrance and how easily he brushes off everyone (like, not today, little rebels, the adults are talking) or… y’know. Wanting people to not die.

6.

Which film?

Revenge of the Sith

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

If you don’t ever feel like throwing your head back and shouting “NOOOOOOOO!!” into the sky, then you were prolly that one person in the audience sat there laughing at Darth Vader’s anguish. For real, imagine someone doing that in real life… #Awks. Also, HOW EPIC IS THIS SCENE?! IT ALL FINALLY COMES TOGETHER.

7.

Which film?

Return of the Jedi

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

Nobody could’ve predicted how everyone basically fell in love with Admiral Ackbar’s ‘Uh, Doy!’ moment, but it happened, so you just gotta accept it. Feel free to save the gif above, we know you’ll store it and keep it forever, just waiting for the perfect, funniest moment to use it (like when that one person pops up on your best friend’s phone out of the blue asking to “Catch up”) .

Bonus:

8.

Which film?

The Force Awakens

Which scene?

Why is it the best?


9.

Which film?

The Last Jedi

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

It’s one of the best lightsaber fights scenes in basically any Star Wars movie ever. Quote us. Not only did it have some intense character development, but the action was literally amazing. It showed us that you never truly know the people around you until they’re in a life-threatening situation. #WiseWords

10.

Which film?

The Empire Strikes Back

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

Yoda’s said a lot of shit in his day, but this one really butters our bread. Feel your whole life be torn apart by a wise little green dude in the space of 2 seconds. Quit making excuses, go do your laundry! Go finish your work! Drink more water!

11.

Which film?

Return of the Jedi

Which scene?

Why is it the best?

Women can do anything, even in a little gold bikini. There’s no reason to think she can’t choke a big weird creature with a chain just ‘cause she looks good. *painting nails emoji*

12.

Which film?

The Force Awakens

Which Scene?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koAJB2SuHgQ

Why is it the best?

We’re pretty sure this scene was meant to be filmed in slow motion but something went wrong along the way (seriously, what’s up with that?) Finn and Poe reuniting watered our crops, cleared our skin, and quenched our thirst. Give us this in ? EVERY ? Star ? Wars ? movie! We won’t even get into how important and emotion this scene is, ’cause we’ll be here forever.

13.

Which film?

The Phantom Menace

Which scene?

The credits.

Why is it the best?

C’mon now. It’s the only part of the movie actually worth taking note of. Let’s just pretend the rest of it didn’t happen, k? K.
