The Top Ten
1 Anakin vs. Obi-Wan

So many classic scenes and moments in this saga, but this one edges out the rest. Plus, it gives greater weight to the Obi-Wan vs Vader scene in A New Hope.

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

This is the best. So much emotion.

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.

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."

Vader: "No. I AM your father."

Me: 😮

Luke: "No. That's not true. That's impossible."

Vader: "Search your feelings. You know it to be true."

Luke: "NO! No!"

3 Luke Destroys the Death Star

This is the most exciting scene in any of the Star Wars films.

4 Vader Saves Luke

As heartbreaking as Anakin's death might have been, I'm still glad Palpatine got what he deserved!

5 Order 66

It's kinda like the Holocaust, but instead killing thousands of Jedi.

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

6 Battle of Hoth

The "And I thought they smelled bad on the outside" quote makes this scene awesome.

7 The Battle of Endor

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

8 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.

9 Anakin Becomes Vader / The Birth of the Twins

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

10 Darth Maul Appearance
The Contenders
11 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.

12 Han Gets "Frozen"

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 so iconic!

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

13 Mos Eisley Cantina
14 Battle of Geonosis
15 Luke vs. Vader (Cave)

This is a great way to visualize the ongoing conflict Luke is going through while training to become a Jedi.

16 Darth Vader Killing Rebels

This scene at the end of R1 is pretty cool.

17 The Battle Of Scarif
18 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.

19 Anakin and Padme Talk for the First Time

Both the parents of Luke Skywalker talk for the very first time.

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.

21 Jar Jar Says How Rude

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

22 Princess Leia and Han Solo Kiss for the First Time
23 Mos Espa Podrace

Young Anakin shows his potential when riding a pod-racer and races against the undefeated champion Sebulba. Love how it copied the scene out of Ben-Hur.

24 Yoda vs Darth Tyrannus/Count Dooku

This is an awesome sequence and the first time we see Yoda fight with a lightsaber.

25 Immolation
