We all live in a galaxy dominated by the Star Wars saga. When the original trilogy came out, little did George Lucas know how his creations would impact cinema forever and how Jedis, lightsabers, and battleships would be as iconic as they are. In this list, we feature the best moments that can't be missed from the original Star Wars movies.
These words constitute one of the more famous lines in the whole saga's history. As Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker face off in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back, the audience were surely in for a treat as all along, it was believed that Vader killed Luke's father but as the evil Vader slices off Skywalker's hand, he then reveals that he and Anakin are one and the same. "I am your father" was heard everywhere and became the plot twist that made this scene remain as one of the best moments from the original Star Wars trilogy.
This scene on Episode IV has been one of the most thrilling from the original trilogy as the escape of our heroes from a squad of Death Star storm troopers has to lead them to this even deadlier predicament. Trapped in a trash compactor, the group of Leia, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo soon find that a dangerous creature lurks below them - the dianoga. Soon, the compactor itself soon activates, threatening to flatten all three heroes between the unyielding metal plates, making the hearts of Star Wars faithful race.
Who would even forget how this tiny green alien trained Luke Skywalker to become the Jedi he is. Yoda's first appearance on Episode V was indeed a milestone for the saga. After finding himself on the swamp planet Dagobah, Luke stumbles upon the wise old master in hiding from the Empire. “Do or do not. There is no try.” - these are the words that the great Jedi instilled upon young Luke inside the cave, which represents a lot of metaphor that Star Wars fans know all too well.
This moment has left us all in awe, a moment where Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader take on the evil Emperor Palpatine in a throne room high atop the second Death Star. The father and son tandem proved to be too much for the evil Emperor, ultimately leading him to his death - which everyone knows to be false by now. Whatever the result of the duel may have been, this moment shall be remembered by Star Wars fans for a very long time.
The Battle of Hoth proved to be one of the more important battles in the whole Star Wars saga as this led to Vader's capture of Luke Skywalker. Led by the gigantic AT-ATs, which are essentially giant walking tanks that resemble mechanical camels, the Empire dominates the assault to wipe out the Rebel's base in a single stroke. One has to admit that this moment serves as one of the most original and creative cinematic battles one will ever witness, whether you are a Star Wars fan or not.
This moment can be a real emotional one for Star Wars fans especially for those who have seen the prequel trilogies that highlight the bond between Obi-Wan and Anakin, but it is also one of the more epic sword duels that can be witnessed in the saga. This scene marks the first time that the two former comrades face off on opposite sides of the battlefield yielding their lightsabers, representing the Light and Dark sides. If there is another lightsaber battle that can equal the intensity of this scene, then every Star Wars fan would die to see that one for sure.
In one of the most breathtaking battle sequences in the Star Wars Universe, Han Solo and the Millenium Falcon saves the day last-minute and negates an almost total wipe-out of the Rebel forces. These climactic moments in Episode IV shows how the outnumbered rebellion fighters fought hard until it was only Luke Skywalker was left. But then, not all scenes end the way we expect as the supposedly invincible Death Star is destroyed in spectacular fashion, exploding into thousands of twinkling fragments.
As if the Star Wars Universe ain't strange enough, Jabba the Hutt's Palace has introduced fans to a whole another world of weirdness. As the base of operations for the Galaxy's famous crime lord, this place is where everyone saw Princess Leia’s iconic golden bikini plus the rancor pit and the corpulent form of Jabba himself, all in Episode VI. Everything in Jabba's palace on Tatooine is made of pure violence and debauchery. If that's not enough, this is also where Luke first returns to Tatooine since leaving with Obi-Wan and Han.
