Favorite Star Wars moments

This list identifies some of our family's favorite moments from the Star Wars movies. We'd have to have another list for Star Wars: Rebels favorite scenes.

1

Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-wan Kenobi battle Darth Maul

Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-wan Kenobi battle Darth Maul

Epic music, epic lightsaber combat, and no Jar Jar!

Yoda vs Count Dooku

Yoda vs Count Dooku

Any scene with Yoda is awesome and there is very little dialogue (which was a plus for this movie).

Obi-wan vs Anakin

Obi-wan vs Anakin

Epic music and lightsaber combat in addition to great acting by Ewan McGregor who really makes you feel the conflict between loving Anakin but needing to destroy him.

Trash compactor scene from Episode IV

Trash compactor scene from Episode IV

I don't know that my kids really like this scene but I think this is really where this trio cements their relationship.

Luke, I am your father.

Luke, I am your father.

I don't know that this is a favorite moment so much as a POWERFUL one. I remember seeing this in the theater when I was 9 and just being angry as all get out that Darth Vader would try to mind punk Luke like that. I responded to a Dynamite kids' magazine poll (you know, where you actually had to write something down on paper and mail it in?) asking whether people believed Darth Vader's statement - I didn't. Boy, did I feel stupid later.

Chewbacca pops out of walker

Chewbacca pops out of walker

We all enjoy this scene where Han is sure that he and Leia are toast until Chewie pops out of the walker hatch.

BB8 lighter thumbs up

BB8 lighter thumbs up

Absolutely endearing. It's not as if the droid isn't cute enough but this quick little lighter thumbs up just put it over the top (in a good way).
