Top Ten Star Wars Scenes

The Complete Star Wars Sage got some really great scenes - which are the best?

The Top Ten

1 Anakin vs. Obi-Wan

Mainly the scene before and after it is so heart wrenching

Looking backwards, it seems like the entire Star Wars Sage was going for this Epic Battle, when neither Mind nor Honor matters, and the Master must confront his loved Student.
(TROTS) - TheOzTamir

This is my favorite movies fight scene of all time. It's so cool! Intense music, fire, lava, blood

I love revenge of the sith, but I'm sorry I find this the most overrated star wars scene ever! - VideoGamefan5

2 "I Am Your Father"

Obi-Wan is not spelled right above. Plus that fight is predictable since we know who wins anyways. This is unexpected since you should watch the originals first.

It's a plot twist for the people who saw Star Wars in the 80's but not for me because I saw the prequels first and then the originals but that doesn't make it less cool

This scene is overrated, for a good plot twist, you need foreshadowing, this had none and so was a cop out. Without foreshadowing, it is lazy - kempokid

Vader: “If you only knew the power of the dark side. Obi Wan never told you what happened to your father.”

Luke: “He told me enough. He told me you killed him.”

3 Vader Saves Luke
4 Order 66

Kinda like the Holocaust. but instead killing thousands of Jedi.

For me at least, it was a pretty emotional scene...

I love the music.

Holocaust of Star Wars

5 Anakin Becomes Vader / The Birth of the Twins

Epic ending to an epic movie - While Anakin failed to destroy the dark side and joined it instead, A new hope is born in the shape of Anakin's Children, who'll bring the balance to the force when the time is right.
(TROTS) - TheOzTamir

It's a quite emotional scene, and the acting in that part from both Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman was excellent. it was a quite hard hittingly emotional scene

6 Luke Destroys the Death Star

Most exciting scene in any of the Star Wars films.

7 Han Gets "Frozen"

The I am your father reveal would have been good, if fanboys who were at the cinema in 1980 would accept that there are people who have not yet seen the movie. STOP SPOILING THE MOVIE.

A Preparation to the duel of Luke and Vader, yet better then the duel itself.
(TESB) - TheOzTamir

Great Han Solo scene. He's just a hero; standing there and trying to be brave, hust to make it easier for Leia, even telling Chewie it's okay (and saying "I know" <3).

Why is this not higher on the list? Really? Only number 7? I think that this should be number 1 on this list and Darth Vader's ''I am your father, Luke'' moment should be number 2! I love how Leia says to Han, ''I love you'', and how he replies, ''I know''! It is sooo iconic!

8 Luke vs. Vader (Cave)
9 Darth Maul Appearance
10 Yoda vs. The Emperor

The whole symbolic relevance of Yoda in Empire Strikes Back was to show that a jedi's power comes from the soul, not a lightsaber. The last two prequel films screwed up his character.

It may not be the most famous scene, it may not be the most liked, well-made or the best one, but hell, it's the most epic scene of the series.

The Contenders

11 Battle of Hoth

The "and I thought they smelled bad on the outside" quote makes this scene awesome - VideoGamefan5

12 Anakin and Padme Talk for the First Time

Both the parents of Luke skywalker talk for the very first time

So corny. "Are you an angel? " Autic correct is hostile horribly ugh, you yet if right?



13 The Battle of Endor

It just baffles me how tiny little alien teddy bears can take out armored soldiers and robots.

14 Binary Sunset

The one moment that symbolizes the beginning of Luke's journey. The beautiful cinematography combined with the score easily makes this one of the best scenes in the movies.

15 Yoda Moves Luke's Ship with the Force

This is absolutely my favorite scene out of all seven of the main films. It's subtle, but it really shows the power of the Force and how strong it can be in anyone; even a little guy like Yoda. It's the pinnacle of the spiritual undertones Episode V carries.

16 Immolation Immolation
17 Dooku Receives the Death Star's Blueprints
18 Mos Eisley Cantina

I'd put this higher above the list.

19 Jar Jar Says How Rude

At least Jar Jar is describing how modern society is today.

20 Kenobi vs. Grievous

This is an awesome duel. it's one of the best duels in the series. grievous's secret lightsaber move is really entertaining and it's cool to see Obi-Wan chase after grievous through Pau City. and in the end, grievous is killed off in an awesome way.

I also like that before Grievous shows his lightsaber move, all the droids are about to open fire on Obi-Wan but grievous is like "back away! I'll deal with this Jedi slime myself! " implying that he wants to finish obi-wan off himself because he hates him
